The Endorsers

***UPDATE: The Monitor doesn't have the story online (even though its reporter covered the event), but the Brownsville Herald has the article on its website.***

Straight from the campaign website of my fellow Aggie, the list of Rio Grande Valley politicians supporting Gov. Rick Perry for re-election:
  • DONNA: Mayor Ric Morales
  • EDCOUCH: Mayor Ramiro Silva
  • ELSA: Commissioner Cain Cazares
  • HARLINGEN: Mayor Rick Rodriquez
  • HIDALGO: Mayor John David Franz
  • LA VILLA: Mayor Rene Castillo
  • MISSION: Mayor Norberto “Beto” Salinas
  • McALLEN: Mayor Richard Cortez
  • PHARR: Mayor Polo Palacios
  • PALMHURST: Mayor Ramiro Rodriguez
  • PROGRESO: Mayor Omar Vela
  • RIO GRANDE CITY: Mayor Kevin Hines

Perhaps unaware of the irony, Gov. Goodhair's campaign news release states:

Perry said that this endorsement sends an important message to Valley voters that regardless of what party they belong to, Texas needs a governor that can put partisanship aside for the good of Texas and will seek common ground whenever possible.

Am I wrong when I say this endorsement will hurt these local politicians come Election Day?

For more on the group's support of the Republican candidate for governor, check out Hector Gomez's post at RGV Politics, Valley Politico's thoughts at Rio Grande Valley Politics, and state Rep. Aaron Peña's observations at A Capitol Blog.

Mack, what ARE he choices? Guv. Kinky? Gov. Stray arrow? A former republican? What will she be next week? Sure Perry allowed the tripling of college tuition rates,on the backs of the fast shrinking middle class, like me, and has not raised teachers salaries significantly,either . Our llcal senators have done well for themsl;eves but have left us out,AGAIN .I guess I'll just stay home this cycle.

I'm voting for Kinky. Like his campaign slogan says, "Why the hell not?"
