Updated: Dwayne Stovall Is Officially Challenging John Cornyn (Texas Rino Hunting)

Updated August 26th, it is now confirmed, Dwayne Stovall is Officially a Candidate for US Senate in the 2014 Texas Republican Primary, here is an Email he sent out confirming it:

Yesterday, I went on the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Satellite (He leads into Glen Beck) and formally announced my candidacy for the next U.S. Senator from THE GREAT STATE OF TEXAS!

It is past time to put the interests of Texas first! Do you want to vote for someone that will never vote to increase the debt or the size of the federal government? Well now you can.

Please join me in the battle to reestablish federalism and limited government.

In liberty,
Dwayne

from his website:

Do you want to restore the Constitution of the United States as written and amended?

Do you believe the Federal Government consistently works outside the limits placed on it by the Constitution?

Do you see how the United States of America, which the Constitution created as a Republic based in federalism, has declined into a Nation based in socialism?

If so, you are the one I am talking to.

I have held out hope that someone with Jeffersonian principles would step up to run against U.S. Senator John Cornyn, and it has become obvious that will not happen.

I circulated a petition two and a half months to find out if there was enough grass roots support to justify a common man with no political affiliations taking on the Republican machine, and the amount of support I found was overwhelming.
I am a Christian, Texan, husband, father, and small business owner in Cleveland, Texas. I have been happily married for 22 years and have 3 children.

Time to bring down the RINO!

Check out Dwayne Stovall on the issues, hes a good one.

Yep, our numbers are growing in the State House and Senate.
Still have to reach those 'last minute' voters that probably put Cornyn over the top.

We were 9% away from the run-off..

A bunch of articles on the

A bunch of articles on the interwebs today about Texas primary.
http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB1000142405270230363090...

There was a post on Stockman's FB page last night about how Stovall filed an FEC complaint. Underneath it a FB poster made the statement, "Stovall is being paid by Cornyn to sabotage our campaign, that is proof that Stockman is the best choice."

This is kind of ridiculous, but I have seen similar comments on Stovall's page.

On the Houston chronicle (our hometown leftist fish wrap), many posters were making statements that the Koch Brothers were behind Stovall and Stockman's campaign, a tired diatribe from 2010 and 2012.

Regardless of what happens this primary or this election, we have SO MUCH WORK TO DO in this state, and this country. Thousands of people are still glued to facebook politics (upvote and share if you support conservative values ad. infinitum...) and television.
We need to get people off the shore, get people to come out deeper than having water cover their feet, and take the plunge into full fledged liberty and freedom.

This crap about Benghazi where 4 people died (yes, it was a cover up), Ben Carson for president or which congressman can say "conservative" the fastest is clogging the air waves.

Maybe I'll stand on the street corner every day with a new sign message or revelation about our corrupt duopoly government until enough people finally get it.

Tomorrow is the big day!
I'm putting signs out at my poll spot, then rushing home from work to hold my banner then go to precinct convention. There's a watch party in Alvin that I wish I could attend but business is business.

Southern Agrarian

Yes it is!

I hope to be at the polls for most of tomorrow. There will be a number of runoffs, it would be so nice if Cornyn ends up in one. But I am afraid some are overly optimistic. In the end, statewide races are decided by millions of poorly informed voters. But it ain't over yet!

I am most excited about the State House races, we have a good shot at getting more Paul people in Austin!

Vote Stovall Y'all!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the sad truth of our country. Many people don't even realize a primary is going on except if it involves a president or is on TV. There was a veteran (50's-60's maybe) at the sign wave last night who said he voted for Stockman but then said he knew nothing about Cornyn. I informed him about his vote for TARP and increasing the debt limit multiple times and he looked shocked. At least he voted though.

There's supposed to be an Anti-Cornyn/Pro-Stockman sign wave today in Houston. But it is cold as piss right now, cold as piss when the sun goes down, and cold tomorrow when people get off work on voting day.

Cornyn up to $12 million raised, 8+ spent.

David Alameel has taken his own cake.
What is wrong with this picture:

Candidate self-financing $3,512,912

Maxey Scherr taken other peoples cake.
Small Contributions $16,367
Large Contributions $164,238

Stockman has same numbers as September 2013...because he hasn't submitted anything since then.

Chris [insert hispanic slur] Mapp has some how rocketed onto the fundraising scene...Again, what is wrong with this picture?
(guy has been 0% in polls,840 FB likes, did people honestly vomit $30k into this guys campaign for calling hispanics ... nevermind)
Small Contributions $736

Elder Gentleman Ken Cope has a $35k loan out to finance his campaign. Pretty backwards that potty mouth Mapp got $30k in large donations for being an ass wipe...

Literally no one has donated to Linda Vega's campaign...
Small Contributions $0
Large Contributions $13,857
Candidate self-financing $2,624

Someone donated $1 to Harry Kim (D)'s campaign.
Yes, one-dollar...

It was a campaign attempt

It was a campaign attempt early on that never took off. He wanted people to make a small presentation of it in their own homes to friends and such and video it or take pictures. I'm trying to kick-start it and give it some air to breathe for the run-off (crosses fingers).

On that note though, I talked to my establishment uncle yesterday who is active in his county GOP. He said NO ONE wants to vote for Cornyn now except for the real GOP hardliners, he voted for Stockman but I called in time to get my aunt to vote for Stovall. He encouraged me to stay involved even if I lose my precinct chair race because "...there aren't any new faces coming into the party."

Some hope for those still trying to fight it out with the RNC

Southern Agrarian

Well this is interesting.

http://www.chron.com/news/local/article/GOP-Senate-candidate...

SAN ANTONIO — Forget Ted Nugent, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate thinks “wetbacks” should be shot by ranchers and that the president is a “socialist son of a bitch.”

Chris Mapp, 53, a South Texas businessman used the slurs at an editorial board meeting with The Dallas Morning News last week. Needless to say, he didn't get their endorsement.

I have to agree, Mapp was a prick at the Lake Jackson Tea Party debate as well. Good riddance loser!

All the time I've been

All the time I've been driving around this year I never noticed any John Cornyn for Senate signs.
I saw 1 Stovall banner while in Tyler but that was it as well.
Then it occurred to me. John Cornyn doesn't need to have a million signs and banners (like all the county judge races do...) because HIS voters are sitting on their rump watching TV or listening to the radio. He knows his demographics.
Same for Stockman. He is running on name alone. He abruptly dropped his congressional race to run for senate on the LAST POSSIBLE DAY. Hasn't been to hardly ANY tea party events (1-2 at my count), participated in ZERO debates but is all over the web as "Cornyn's challenger". They know what they're doing. They know people are just going to read some blah-blah news story churned out by the MSM and establishment media, "Stockman Gaining on Cornyn!".
All the polls conducted by individual Tea Parties, Dwayne Stovall won. On the other hand, if you are Stockman or Cornyn, you can pay a polling company to poll for you.
Didn't know that? These polling and survey companies will poll when you want, where you want, who you want, to get the results you want. Stovall not included in the survey? Intentional.
It has been fortunate that Dwayne has been on the shows and radio interviews he has, because 'you have to pay to play the game'. The reason Beck never interviewed him was because of $. He wont talk to people unless they fork over the dough. This is the sick reality of our political system.

Hopefully in my lifetime this system can be ended and we can have a more republican form of electing these people.

It was on a Ford Ranger in Granbury TX, I don't recall seeing any other stickers or signs for the Senate race this year

Does Stockman have a campaign

Does Stockman have a campaign store? I've looked through his website and can't find one. He says he has signs though.

Southern Agrarian

I don't think so.

I did not even know that he has signs.
Very few candidates have campaign stores. I know Ron did, but he was a special case. Heck, private businesses made and sold their own Ron Paul stuff.

I think Stovall is just doing it because he doesn't have enough cash, and he knows getting rid of Cornyn is priceless to Texans.

If you ran for a local office, and you tried to sell your signs to voters you would be told to go pound sand.

Texas Senate race campaign finances finally on OpenSecrets

http://www.opensecrets.org/races/summary.php?cycle=2014&id=TXS1

Dwayne hauled in about $28k in the last quarter of 2013 and has the highest % of small contributions, plus an outstanding loan from his TX house run.
Linda Vega has ZERO small donations and is in debt.
Keisha Rogers is pulling in decent money as the lone democrat dissenter (LaRouchePAC).
Curt Cleaver financed his own campaign.
Chris Mapp financed half of his own campaign.
David Alameel apparently is insane.
Stockman's reports are from September and are 2nd to Cornyn's.
Cornyn has $2.5 million in PAC money which is more than several orders of all other candidates combined...

Southern Agrarian

I want to point out something

I want to point out something rather phenomenal in the campaign finance data.

Look at all of the Republican and Democrat contenders.
Notice anything?
Look closer at the small contributions tally for each candidate.

Look at Maxey Scherr who is the establishment Dem being run.
Maxey Scherr
Individual contributions
- Small Contributions $4,180 (2%)
- Large Contributions $102,252 (50%)
PAC contributions $0
Candidate self-financing $100,100 (48%)
Other $0

What about Stockman? (I should note that all the money he has listed was for His congressional race and not the senate which he declared in December, well after the September 30th filing date for the current data )

Steve Stockman Congressional Money (September 2013)*
Individual contributions
- Small Contributions $54,759 (22%)
- Large Contributions $114,576 (46%)
PAC contributions $76,698 (31%)
Candidate self-financing $4,000 (2%)
Other $0

Do you see it yet?
Let's look at Dwayne's money.
Dwayne
Individual contributions
- Small Contributions $18,185 (65%)
- Large Contributions $9,750 (35%)
PAC contributions $0
Candidate self-financing $0
Other $27,935 (100%)

See it?
Here it is:
Dwayne Stovall has more money from small contributions Than all other candidates combined . We can't count Stockman's money since that money was donated for his 'Congressional Race'. We won't even look at Cornyn's money.
Secondly.
Dwayne Stovall has more than 4 times as much in small contributions than the ESTABLISHMENT Democrat candidate .
Do you understand this?
Dwayne has busted his A$$ so hard that he is worth the value of 4 Democrat senate candidates to the small time contributors to the Democrat party. I know Texas isn't a Democrat stronghold, but let that sink in. Every other candidate either received large PAC money, wealthy large contributions, or self financed 3 quarters of a million dollars of their own money like Alameel.

Dwayne
IS
GRASSROOTS
BABY!

(I'll post this on facebook later and let the campaign know)
