Man who believes God speaks to us through "Duck Dynasty" is about to be Texas' second-in-command

On one hand, I’m uncomfortable with the way MoJo assumes Patrick will be elected. I know this is Texas, but come on. On the other, WTF TEXAS.

Are you a Texan? Are you planning to vote this election? Yes? Great! Now, listen:

1. Early voting starts October 20 and ends October 31. During this time you can vote at any approved early voting location located in your county of residence.

2. Election Day is November 4. Polls are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Find your polling place.

3. If you are voting by mail your ballot must be received by November 4.

4. If you are voting in person you will need to present one of the seven acceptable forms of voter ID. Watch above video for more information.

5. VOTE!!!!

p.s. This website has a lot of useful and helpful information regarding voting. Check it out!

Every major newspaper in Texas has endorsed Leticia Van de Putte for Lt. Governor.

i.e. The Houston Chronicle, The Dallas Morning News, The Austin American Statesman, The Fort Worh Star-Telegram, The San Antonio Express-News

The greatest threat to public confidence in elections in this case is the prospect of enforcing a purposefully discriminatory law, one that likely imposes an unconstitutional poll tax and risks denying the right to vote to hundreds of thousands of eligible voters.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called Texas’ voter ID law “purposefully discriminatory” in her dissent against the Supreme Court’s decision to let the law be enforced in the upcoming November election. She was joined in dissent by Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.

'We Have No Choice': One Woman's Ordeal with Texas' New Sonogram Law

Reminder: Dan Patrick authored the law that requires women in Texas to receive a sonogram and listen to a description of the fetus before having an abortion.

It should be hechos, not dichos. It’s not what you say, Senator Patrick. It’s what you do.
