Prior to Debbie passing on July 17, we often discussed our major concern that Texas Republicans could lose control to the Democrats. When Lt. Col. West told us that he was going to run to lead our Texas Republican party, we were thrilled. The time for going along to get along is over. We need leaders willing to take a strong stance on our Republican platform regardless of what it takes. This next election will be a major fight for control in Texas. We want someone who will stand tall with convictions and lead us all to do the same. That person is Allen West. He understands principle and conviction. And most importantly, he knows how to fight for what is right. I strongly urge you to get behind this man of Valor who will lead the fight that we all must join.
