Our Lone Star story of the day: Local government good ol’ boy bricks-for-brains running Palo Pinto County decided to infringe on political speech at election time as they are still upset that their buddy, state Rep. Glenn Rogers, was beaten in the GOP primary. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has told them to stop it! Details can be found here: 5th Circ. Halts Texas County’s Electioneering Rules – Law360.

I will tell you exactly what that reason is that others seem unable to grasp.

We visit with Ben Armenta, chairman candidate for the Texas Republican Party.
