Call Bill Flores By Wednesday – 3/16-11

We want Bill Flores to tell the Republican Leadership that he will not support the continuing resolution that currently funds ObamaCare with $105 Billion already being spent.

National Review – Targeting Chet Edwards

National Review, the premier conservative magazine, has posted an article by Andrew Stiles – Targeting Chet Edwards. Although the article is more Beltway than District 17, the fact is that Chet Edwards will have no one to blame but himself if he fails to be re-elected.
