RE: [RLC-Action] Texas Congressional Race - CD22
Guy, we need to lobby them too to not endrose ANYONE. Tina B. will be there......there is no way they would allow L-Smither to be endorsed. BEST scenerio is to get them to come to a consensus to not vote on any "consensus candidate" a write in cant win anyway. the purpose of the meeting is to back a write in candidate. there is NO mechanism of the state party to do this under any election code to begin with. as anyone can go and file as a write in if they want to. its alll being done to give the "resemblence" of some "official" crediblity behind one candidate for a write in.
no write in can win this seat anyway.......so they need to vote to NOT endorse anyone....and to STOP pushing the lunacy of a doomed write in race for congress. and not spend one CENT of republican party money, or effort into a knowing losing situation. THAT will "free" many REpublicans to then ENDORSE L-Smither. if there is NO "pseudo-sanctioned" republican write in candidate. (and technically ANY write in candidate is an independent to begin with)
NO CONSENSUS CANDIDATE is the message....... they need to vote to walk away from a futile write in effort.

There is no Republican in the race, so � you got no other dog in the hunt.
