Speak Straus Attends Fundraiser for Patrick Rose

Joe Straus is the Republican Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives.  Speaker Straus has decided to attend a fundraiser for Patrick Rose, the Democrat Representative from Dripping Springs, HD-45.  Republican Rick Green used to hold this seat before he lost it to Rose in 2002.  Rick Green ran for the Texas Supreme Court this go around and made it to the run off, eventually losing to our current nominee for the general election, Debra Lehrmann.

For the 81st legislative session Patrick Rose earned a “D” from the Young Conservatives of TexasEmpower Texans, a fiscally conservative group that watches out for the Texas taxpayers best interests, gave Rose a 42% based on how he voted on fiscal issues.

Instead of attending this fundraiser for Rose, please consider helping out Jason Isaac, the Republican candidate for HD-45 who is going up against Rose.

You can meet Jason on his Texas BBQ tour on Saturday May 15th, 2010 at the following stops.
11:00 AM – Riley’s BBQ, Blanco
1:30 – Miss Mae’s BBQ, Wimberley
3:30 – Railroad BBQ, Kyle
5:30 – Black’s BBQ, Lockhart

Here is Jason with Governor Rick Perry and the # 71 NASCAR.

On a side note, Jason and I share a passion, the game of lacrosse.  For the majority of Texans out there that do not know what lacrosse is you should check it out as lacrosse is the fastest game on two feet!

  1. Thanks for the news. Hard to believe the Speaker is off to a fundraiser for a Dem.

    I appreciated your previous post on the truth about abortion–i.e., the staggering statistics. That post will stay with me for a long time. Sobering.

  2. Straus has to face the reality that if he is going to pass any good conservative legislation he is going to have to pick off the weakest willed Dems- of which Rose is one.

    Besides, didn’t perry just attend a fundraiser for the Democratic Senate Chair? http://blogs.chron.com/texaspolitics/archives/2010/05/they_hugged_he.html
