Geez, I haven’t seen this much celebrity buzz in Pasadena since John Travolta rode the bull at Gilley’s! Don’t laugh, I was an extra in that flick. Along with a thousand other Pasadena lookers on. The buzz today was all about Ted Cruz coming to town to support Republican David Pineda’s bid for Texas House District 144.
David Pineda welcomes Ted Cruz to Pasadena
One thing is for sure – grassroots conservatives love them some Ted Cruz. The Pineda campaign office if fairly large be campaign standards yet it was overflowing. The halls were full, the second room was full, and still people were standing outside. And Ted didn’t disappoint, delivering a fiery speech about the need to take the country back. He even told of driving out to Pasadena in high school because he was dating a young woman who lived there. The crowd loved it.
This type of enthusiasm and hard work is what is going to make the difference on election day. Several candidates were there – Mike Sullivan, Michael Landrum, Jeff Hastings, and Chuck Maricle. These guys are working hard not only for their own campaigns but for all Republicans in Harris County. Be sure and thank them the next time you see them.
And Ted. What can you say that hasn’t been said about his work ethic? The guy works non-stop and has earned the accolades given him. His efforts on behalf of all Republican candidates in Texas cannot be overstated. I know that David Pineda appreciated his efforts today. And I know that Randy Weber is thankful that Ted is going to be with him in Beaumont on Monday to help defeat Nick Lampson. If you live in the Golden Triangle area, spread the word and try to come out to that event – make it even more successful than today’s rally! The rally will be held Monday, October 29th, at 1:00 pm at Madison’s on Dowlen Road in Beaumont – click here for a map.
As for the David Pineda campaign itself, the outlook is pretty good. They have knocked on over 28,000 doors, put out over 1,500 yard signs, and have enough money for mailers and to be on the air. That just shows what hard work can accomplish. Don’t be surprised when this young Marine wins on November 6th.
