Liberal Democratic Reps. Mark Strama, Diana Maldonado and Patrick Rose are having trouble hiding from the voters their liberal pasts and voting records thanks to strong Republican challengers Patrick McGuinness, Larry Gonzales and Jason Isaac.
The Republican challengers are running strong campaigns putting the incumbent Democrats on the defensive.
Patrick McGuinness is hammering Mark Strama in HD-50 for supporting President Obama and his liberal policies, remind you of someone else running for office trying to hide his liberal past?
Republican challenger Jason Isaac is attacking Patrick Rose in HD-45 for supporting liberal policies and voting for tax increases.
Last but not least Republican challenger Larry Gonzales is running a text book campaign against Diana Maldonado in HD-52. Here Gonzales takes it to Maldonado for flip flopping.

Liberal Flip-flops on Voter ID
Williamson County – How do you know we are just five days away from the start of voting? Liberal Democrat Diana Maldonado announced last night she supports requiring a photo ID to vote, despite stating just 5 days earlier at a forum she was opposed to voter ID and last session participated in a five-day delay of the House Calendar that killed the photo ID bill.
In a forum hosted by the Greater Round Rock West Neighborhood Association, Maldonado said, “I am for voter identification where it does have a picture, let’s do that.” Emphasising her point, she said later, “Sure let’s put a picture on it.”
But according to the Austin American-Statesman, at the forum hosted by the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on October 8th, “Maldonado compared asking voters for more identification, than what is currently required, to police officers asking for more identification when they pull over drivers.”
“Diana’s desperate flip-flop on voter ID doesn’t change the fact she helped kill that bill, and dozens of other bills last session including a bill to require background checks of childcare providers who receive state money,” said Gonzales. “She literally put politics ahead of the safety of our children to kill a bill she now says she supports. It’s just pathetic political pandering.”
Please support these great Republican challengers with your money and more importantly your time these next 20 days! Check out their respective campaign websites for volunteer opportunities.
