Presidential Election Thoughts Aug 5, 2015
An excerpt from Representative James Frank’s Newsletter dated August 5, 2015:
As a Representative to the Texas House, I typically limit my newsletters, posts and tweets to policies at the State level. Not only are these the issues that I can personally impact, these are the issues that typically need more press than better known national issues.I have decided that I will be making a major exception to that general rule in the 2016 Republican Presidential Primary race for 3 reasons:
1. Importance of the Presidency – we must have someone who understands, desires and works for a government that is both limited in its scope and as local as practical. Unfortunately, the President has significantly more influence on the rules, regulations and budget of the state than I ever would have imagined.
2. Choose the right candidate and we win – if Republicans choose one of the qualified, electable candidates, we will win the election.
3. Texas will play an important role in picking the Republican candidate- while Texas is almost certain to elect a Republican in the general election, the PRIMARY is where we can actually have the biggest impact on this election.
