Republican Candidate Dwayne Stovall Supports Meadows Resolution to Oust Boehner as Speaker

CLEVELAND, TEXAS - Dwayne Stovall, Republican candidate for Texas CD 36, enthusiastically supports a resolution put forward by Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina which would oust John Boehner as Speaker of the House.

Stovall said in a statement: "The Representatives we send to Washington are to advocate for what's in the best interests of their district, and not for the whims of the Speaker of the House. John Boehner does not represent the values of this district. He has a known distaste for Texas, and uses chairmanships and select committee positions as a means of control.

"Earlier this year, Rep. Brian Babin chose not to represent the will of this district when he voted 'Present' in the Speaker's race, making it easier for Boehner to retain his position. The gentle Congressman's unwillingness to take a stand on behalf of his district only perpetuated this crisis of confidence in leadership.

"The will of the voters in this district was to vote for Rep. Louie Gohmert, who had the courage to step forward and present himself for the position of Speaker. In a Houston Community News article, the former mayor of Woodville asserted that he didn't know enough about those running against Boehner, when many in this district have long esteemed the principles of Rep. Gohmert. It's a shame that Rep. Babin didn't share that esteem.

"It is not in the best interests of Texans to have a man in Ohio dictate how our Representatives behave and vote. This is part of the reason that I chose to run for Congress.

"I tip my hat to Rep. Mark Meadows for his constitutional stand in submitting this resolution. It's past time to decentralize the decision-making in Washington, and we must elect representatives who will listen to Texans and not to a man in Ohio."

For reference, here is a link to the text of the resolution submitted by Meadows.

Dwayne Stovall Announces Intended Legislation to Protect the Children of Texas

CLEVELAND, TEXAS - Dwayne Stovall, candidate for Texas Congressional District 36, announces intended legislation to protect the children of Texas when he is sworn into office.

Stovall said in a statement, "Just when you think the abortion industry could not be more evil, we learn that some people with Planned Parenthood are apparently selling fetal tissue, organs, and limbs for profit.

"This is the inevitable outcome of those who place no value on human life; the same people who claim a woman has the right to kill her unborn child demand someone else be jailed for killing a plant or an animal they deem endangered. How much more of this insanity will we Texans allow? I want every Texan to know it doesn't have to be this way.

"As your representative, one of my first actions will be to put forth simple, straightforward legislation that reads:

'As of this date, by Law, the issue of abortion will be remanded to the States, and the federal judiciary will no longer have standing on the issue of abortion.'

"Make no mistake, the Constitution tells us that Congress has the power - the absolute power - to control the Supreme Court's involvement in any issue outside the three specific types of cases listed.

"Article III, Section 2, of the federal Constitution is clear about the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court:

'In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those in which a state shall be a party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction. In all the other cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make.'

"Understanding this is key to restoring the federal system of government on which the Constitution was based, and in which the citizens of the States, outside of the limited authorities delegated to the federal government, retain the authority to manage the affairs of their own State.

"Yes, it's that simple. If we Texans want to manage the issue of abortion according to our morals, values, and traditions, this type of legislation must be proposed.

"We must destroy the lie that a few hundred members of an elite political class, located in a town far, far, away, have the absolute power to rule over the daily lives of more than 320 million people. It's past time to rein in the federal government.

"Without fail, politicians will give speeches about how they intend to shrink government and restore the Constitution, but once elected they leave us behind and vote in a manner that continues to grow the government and injures the Constitution.

"Throughout my campaign, I will give explicit and easy-to-understand examples of how I intend to use the authorities conveyed to the Congress in the Constitution to actually restore States' Rights and limit the federal government.

"Proposing legislation to take authority over abortion away from these elites and return it to the citizens of Texas is just the first of many."

Dwayne Stovall Congratulates Brian Babin on Echoing Cruz Endorsement

CLEVELAND, TEXAS - Dwayne Stovall, Republican candidate for Texas CD 36, noticed that his early endorsement of Ted Cruz for President during Stovall's Senate race in December 2013 has now been echoed by Rep. Brian Babin.

Stovall said: "I said late in 2013 that if he chose to run for President, I would do what I could to help Sen. Ted Cruz get elected. I meant what I said and I stand by those words. It pleases me to know that both of the candidates for Congressional District 36 stand firmly for the good Senator from Texas."

Dwayne Stovall's public statement on December 4, 2013, was this:

"Ted Cruz understands the Constitution in a way that few in Congress do, and if the day comes that he chooses to run for President, I will tell you now that he has my vote. Whether I am in or out of the Senate, I would do what I could to help him get elected. You can consider that an endorsement, if you like."

Stovall lives in Liberty County in the heart of Texas and is married to Kathy, his high school sweetheart. They have three children. For more information please visit www.dwaynestovall.com.

Dwayne Stovall Announces His Candidacy for Texas Congressional District 36

CLEVELAND, TEXAS - Dwayne Stovall, a Republican small businessman who previously campaigned for the US Senate in Texas, has announced his candidacy to become a US Representative for Texas CD 36.

Stovall said in a statement: "Benjamin Franklin once famously said, 'We have a Republic, if we can keep it.' Today, there is no question that this Republic has declined into a National government with an all-powerful King, a Congress that is no more than a powerless parliament, and a Supreme Court that has become an unelected army of nine lawyers who rule according to their whims more than the Constitution. I am motivated to run for Congress because the federal system we were gifted is being destroyed, and it doesn't have to be that way.

"The framers of our Constitution and the States that agreed to it had every intention of constraining the federal government. They understood the inherent danger in a government too large. The further power is removed from the people, the greater the opportunity for corruption.

"That power has become so concentrated in a town far, far from Texas that a single man can write executive orders and memos to change how we live here in our State, counties, and cities. Our first president, George Washington, wisely refused to become a king, but for some reason we've allowed Barack Obama to become king, and without check. Everyone knows that the Constitution provides checks and balances. Those necessary checks and balances will never work if they're not employed, but it would appear that too many in office don't understand that they even exist.

"The Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of Obamacare and ignored the Constitution. The following day, the Supreme Court decided to tell us in Texas what marriage is, once again ignoring the Constitution. When the President and the Supreme Court invade matters that rightfully belong to the States and to the people, and are allowed to get away with it, it's obvious that too many in Washington, DC, have clearly forgotten the rule of law and the Constitution.

"Benjamin Franklin was right to question our ability to maintain the Republic. It was only intended for a moral and principled people. I look forward to working hard to earn your vote and to stand in Congress for the principles and traditions that we Texans hold dear."

Stovall lives in Liberty County in the heart of Texas and is married to Kathy, his high school sweetheart. They have three children. For more information please visit www.dwaynestovall.com.
