Texas Senate Race – Some don’t take the easy road…

SD10 GOP Candidates L-R: Tony Pompa, Mark Skinner, Jon Schweitzer

Nice that three of the FIVE running for Texas Senate District 10 GOP nomination made the effort to attend the ONLY debate. I’ve been in political debates. It isn’t easy to put yourself on the line, but for the record, I doubt being a state Senator is a job we want to award someone that prefers the easy route.

Those that only attend echo chambers where they are loved (and won’t face hard questions) are telegraphing what kind of legislator they’d be.

Kudos to Skinner, Pompa and Schweitzer for not taking the easy route.

As for Burton and Shelton, neither of whom attended… hope you had a comfortable chair. Burton was seen at a Tea Party monthly meeting. Most of their leadership has already endorsed her and she wasn’t the main speaker. Yeah, that’s more important than debate. Debates are hard.

I’ve already stated my preference for Skinner… but I appreciate the fact that there are a couple in the race with him who, like Skinner, aren’t avoiding hard questions.
