Texas Senate: Leppert Announces Candidacy

Former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert (R) “is entering the race for U.S. Senate in Texas,” POLITICO reports. He’ll join a “crowded GOP primary.”

Former Secretary of State Roger Williams, former Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams, current Railroad Commissioner Elizabeth Ames Jones and former Solicitor General Ted Cruz are all in the race, with wealthy Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst looming over all contenders.

Here’s his “why I’m running” statement:

I bring a unique conservative approach to government.

I’ve created jobs, grown a business, and cut wasteful spending in both the public and private sector. I understand firsthand how decisions made in Washington affect the economy.

The federal government is overspending, overtaxing, over-regulating, and destroying jobs. To get our country back on track, we must reduce the role of government.

Making tough decisions in business and as Mayor was not easy, but I made the hard calls that are so lacking in Washington right now.

In the U.S. Senate I’ll help create jobs, be a watchdog for taxpayers, fight wasteful spending, reduce the debt and stop the President’s tax increases.

    THIS IS A MESSAGE I AM TRYING TO POST EVERYWHERE I CAN IN HOPE THAT YOU WILL SEE THE LOGIC IN IT
    I couldn’t agree more. Social Security has over a two trillion surplus as it stands today and the Republicans want to tap into that money that has been solvent for 75 years. So keep your Damned fingers out of the Social Security and let it keep its soventcy just as it has been for the last 75 years. You want to cut Billions upon Billions, Were paying over 70 billion dollars a year to keep non violent offender in prison , So start cutting on prisons. There is no reason That The United States Has More People In Prisons Than any other nation in the whole world. I talking about non-violent offenders of the law . You want to tap in to Social Security That You well know will help keep non-violent offender of law in prisons . We are the Prison Capitol Of The World , But no matter where you want to cut or tapp into anything, Leave Our Social Security Solvent , and I could thing of any place better to start cutting in the prisons and building more while your at it and Veterans have been needing a good Surgical Hospital in Casper Wyoming, But You would rather build more prisons rather than Hospitals and not to mention that our great nation of prisons spends 95% more on jails and prisons than they do for schools. I can’t’ be proud of THIS America
