The recent Tarrant County Conservative Candidate Fair was a well attended event, BUT. The plurality for the Senate District 10 race went to Konni Burton.
Konni is running on the “I know Ted Cruz personally because I campaigned for him” platform. She’s never actually held political office, never legislated. Has no business experience to speak of, experience meeting payrolls, etc. None of the personal accomplishment that normally accompanies a political resume.
That notwithstanding, simply having pictures of you standing by Ted Cruz may in some cases be sufficient when you’re talking only to die-hard tea party types.
Likely not with the rest of the public, so for the general election whoever we nominate better have some personal cred, not just reflected glory from someone else.
Hopefully her fans will discover some actual qualification she has not yet told us about. Between you and me, I know people that helped get Bush elected, and they aren’t pretending that is a qualification to be HANDED a senate seat without other qualifying credentials.
You won’t hear about her depth of qualifying attributes if you watch the ad video she just put out. In that she stresses only that she is “the only true conservative in the race”… then cuts to a picture of her standing beside Cruz.
[Wait. ONLY Conservative? She learned nothing from Wendy Davis puffed bio escapade.]
Meanwhile KONNI BURTON begged off attending THE ONLY DEBATE set for SD10… on February 10.
Somebody needs to re-think that campaign, or grow a pair and make it to the debate. We can’t afford a senator that isn’t capable of expressing themself and prevailing.
KONNI BURTON… why won’t you attend the ONLY debate?
Funny. I never saw Ted Cruz run from a fight.
