Early voting is upon us for the November 8th election and runs from Monday, 24 October through Friday, 4 November. Here’s a look through the ballot with how I’ll cast my vote in statewide races.
At the top of the ticket, I sure don’t want Hillary Clinton as President and the only way to ensure that is to cast a vote for Donald Trump and so I will.
In the race for Texas 19th Congressional District, I’ll vote for the Republican nominee Jodey Arrington with about as much enthusiasm.
In the race for Texas Railroad Commissioner, I fully endorse Wayne Christian. Christian is solid and has battled for conservatism in the trenches for years. This explains why some quite liberal newspaper editorial boards are endorsing the Libertarian in the race; they just can’t stand outspoken conservatives who stand up to them. It’s funny that the Democrats put up such a weak candidate that their fellow media Leftists were embarrassed to endorse him!
In the Texas Supreme Court races I’ll vote for Debra Lehrman, Paul Green and Eva Guzman. And in the supreme court for criminal cases, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, I’ll vote for Mary Lou Keel, Scott Walker and Michael Keasler.
Down ballot there are some Republican Primary winners I don’t think best but in no case am I aware of a Democrat or other on the ballot who would be better so I’ll vote for the Republican. I’ll probably save time and vote a straight Republican ticket when I enter the booth.
Early voting runs from Monday the 24th through Friday the 4th.
