Big wins against Austin’s RINO aristocracy, full review | We Remember the Alamo! – Pratt on Texas 3/6/2024

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Full election review. After halfway efforts in the past, Gov. Greg Abbott finally wen all-in as a leader and dealt a big blow to the Texas House RINO aristocracy. Eight, likely nine, outright wins over anti-school choice incumbents and four others, including the Drinker of the House Dade Phelan, now in runoffs to try and hold their seats!

Primary runoff election date is 28 May 2024.

Phelan was number two in votes in the three-way race for his House seat and the runoff will likely be classic bare-knuckled Texas politics of a very entertaining nature. Even if Phelan wins reelection, it is unlikely he will survive to remain as speaker. It simply doesn’t serve members’ interests to have their body’s leader locked in a war with the Governor and Lieutenant Governor all session – and it is all of Phelan’s making by the way.

One great thing is that in the five person race for Railroad Commissioner, incumbent Christi Craddick appears to have won it outright which means no statewide GOP runoff election will be required – great news for all county chairmen!

There will be big runoffs for a state senate seat (SD30), for Congressional seats, including incumbent Tony Gonzalez in TX23, and runoffs for several key Texas House seats. It should be fun.

Our Lone Star story of the day is sponsored by Allied Compliance Services providing the best service in DOT, business and personal drug and alcohol testing since 1995.

This is the day the Alamo fell: 6 March 1836. We remember in song.
