Steve Stockman Violates Election Law to Manipulate Texas Republican Primary and Exposes Donor Data

(March 1, 2014) - The Dwayne Stovall campaign uncovered proof that Steve Stockman's campaign broke the law and exposed its donors to potential harm. Detailed records of Stockman's donors' contributions were discovered on the website of the Center for the American Future, a 501(c)(4) group. If the Center for the American Future had no connection to the Stockman for Senate 2014 campaign, Stockman's 2014 contributions between Feb 11 and Feb 12 couldn't find their way to the Center for the American Future web site. The only way that's possible is if the two are not separate at all.

Further, the two connected organizations treated donor financial information carelessly, without proper security precautions.

Stovall said in a statement: "As a native Texan, any effort by any candidate to game an election with illegal mailers, surveys, sample ballots, and in this case actual fake newspapers ought to offend the common decency and ethics of any Texan. Millions of Texas voters are being played by people from outside of Texas for their own gain."

"Some might suggest that this is 'politics as usual.' No, it's not. Stockman was fined $40,000 for unethical behavior by the FEC in the 1990's for gimmicks like this. The FEC doesn't issue fines for typical politics."

"Texas voters deserve fair elections. The scale of this fraud runs statewide - and I don't say that lightly. This is fraud. When a fake non-profit group issues fake newspapers all over Texas that promote Steve Stockman, and when that organization's website has February transaction details on it for the Stockman for Senate campaign, that's fraud."

"I've filed two FEC complaints. The second is in regard to a pro-Stockman mailer that went out targeting the Asian community. The Texas Asian Republican Assembly issued a press release disavowing such tactics." (http://taragop.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=52)

"Election integrity is important in Texas. That's why voter ID is critical. That's why good organizations like True the Vote are critical. Any member of Congress who has such low regard for election law has no business writing any law. I agree with the recent statement from Texas Liberty leaders, who united to say, 'Steve Stockman doesn't represent our values.' I want all of Texas to know that the integrity of this election may be in question."

Copies of the complaints are available at http://texansforstovall.com/fec_complaint_arohc.pdf and http://texansforstovall.com /fec_complaint_cat.pdf.

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term. Steve Stockman is a US Congressman.

Dwayne Stovall is a small businessman from Liberty County in the heart of Texas. He is married to his high school sweetheart of 22 years, and has three children. More information on the candidate and his campaign may be obtained at www.texansforstovall.com.

Does US Senate Candidate Dwayne Stovall Have a Message for Latino Voters?

(February 20, 2014) - Voters have asked if candidate for US Senate, Dwayne Stovall, has a message for the Latino community in the run-up to the March 4th Republican Primary.

Stovall said: "My statement to the Latino community is the same as my statement to every other community. If I could put it in Spanish, it would be GOP: Gente, Oportunidad, y Prosperidad. Translated, that's People, Opportunity, and Prosperity."

"When I look across Texas, I don't see groups of people divided from each other. If you're a citizen of the United States and you live here, you're a Texan. Every Texan deserves to live in freedom."

"My message to everyone is simple: reduce the debt, let people keep more of their money and pay less in taxes, remove unnecessary regulations so that the private sector can create more jobs and more opportunity, and enjoy the prosperity that conservative policies foster."

"Texans work hard for their money. They deserve to keep more of it. That's my message to everyone."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall is a small businessman from Liberty County in the heart of Texas. He is married to his high school sweetheart of 22 years, and has three children. More information on the candidate and his campaign may be obtained at www.texansforstovall.com.

Customary to Campaign, Steve Stockman Gimmicks Poll and Still Comes Up Short

Losing yet again to "Unsure," Rep. Steve Stockman released a poll that pitted only him against Sen. John Cornyn. Fewer than 800 were polled and Stockman finished behind "Unsure." These results mimic the results in a poll done by the Republican Leadership Council in his own district where he finished fourth, behind "Unsure." In that poll of 660 in Stockman's CD 36, all of the candidates for US Senate were available for selection, and Dwayne Stovall, as he has in ten straw polls to date, beat Cornyn and Stockman.

Stovall said in a statement: "Steve Stockman imagines that he's the only person running against John Cornyn, but the reality is that he's lost in every straw poll to date and he lost in this poll as well. He is not the candidate to beat John Cornyn. I am the only candidate to beat John Cornyn."

"The core problem is that Stockman has no organization. The man from Michigan hasn't traveled the State of Texas to earn the vote of Texans, and frankly, I hear that at almost every campaign stop where Stockman is mentioned that his behavior offends Texans. It's bad enough that John Cornyn takes our votes for granted, but Stockman simply has no right to expect our votes."

"Stockman said in a statement to Human Events that he thought he could 'find all the Cruz people and turn them out.' It might help him if he'd actually taken the time to meet the voters who helped Ted Cruz win his election."

"Texans want a Texan who will listen to them. Neither Stockman nor Cornyn do that. Infact, Stockman didn't listen to voters in his district when he had the opportunity to join Louie Gohmert and vote against Boehner to retain him as Speaker of the House. I hate to tell him, but 'Anybody but Cornyn' is not on the ballot."

"Here's the blatant truth: a man who grew up in Michigan with ethics charges currently filed against him, who has no organization in Texas, and can't win any polls against John Cornyn is not the candidate for Texas. I'm the only candidate who has beaten John Cornyn in polls, and I have the backing of Tea Parties and many conservative groups across the Lone Star State and over 1,100 committed volunteers to win for Texas."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term. Steve Stockman is a US Congressman.

Dwayne Stovall Releases Video in Protest of Love Affair between John Cornyn and Mitch McConnell

(February 13, 2014) - Dwayne Stovall has just released a video entitled "Turtle Soup," critical of John Cornyn and his subservience to Mitch McConnell. It addresses Cornyn's penchant for capitulating to Democrats. In the video, Stovall calls out Cornyn for always voting to serve Mitch McConnell and not Texas. You can view the video at http://texansforstovall.com/turtle.php

When the Senator from Kentucky gave marching orders to our senior Senator to once again work against the Lone Star State, Stovall pushed past his initial reluctance to open up a new front in his fight for Texas.

Stovall said in a statement: "Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn have gone too far. The love affair John Cornyn should have is with Texas, not with Mitch McConnell. John Cornyn and Mitch McConnell deserve to be mocked for the way in which they conduct the business of the Senate. Both men are in trouble in their re-election bids because neither represents the best interests of their states."

"Retiring Mitch McConnell has become a priority for the country because he is the minority leader. If John Cornyn is not also retired, then he will likely become the next Republican leader in the Senate, a thought which should frighten every conservative - not only in Texas, but throughout America. If McConnell loses, and Cornyn is re-elected, you'll just have a Mitch McConnell in the Senate who once every six years puts on a cowboy hat to get re-elected."

"Texans need a fighter who represents Texas alongside Ted Cruz. John Cornyn does not represent Texas. As a native and lifelong Texan, I know Texas. I've traveled the breadth of Texas and listened to Texans, unlike Cornyn or Rep. Stockman. This is exactly why I've now won 9 out of 9 GOP and Tea Party straw polls."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term. Steve Stockman is a US Congressman.

Dwayne Stovall Vows to Vote No And Filibuster Every Federal Debt Increase

(February 13, 2014) - GOP Senatorial candidate Dwayne Stovall pledged yesterday to not only vote no on every federal debt increase attempt, but to use every other means at his disposal, including the filibuster, to prevent the debt from ever being raised again.

Stovall made the pledge yesterday morning before the cloture vote, when it became apparent that Sen. John Cornyn would again betray Texas and vote to allow a debt increase. True to form, Cornyn remained true to his bait-and-switch character.

Stovall said in a statement: "Texans don't want any more debt. Texans want their Senators to do everything in their power to prevent it. Unfortunately, just like after his vote on cloture for Obamacare, Cornyn votes for it before he votes against it."

"Cornyn's vote with the Democrats to end debate on the bill helped to clear the way for its passage. That required 60 votes, and John Cornyn joined with Mitch McConnell to hand that liberal victory to Harry Reid. Once cleared, the simple majority of Democrats in the Senate was all that was needed to pass it. This allowed Cornyn to vote No on the final bill so that he could say he voted against it. That's a half-truth and it's misleading. The bill would never have passed if it were not for Sen. Cornyn's bait and switch tactics."

"Sen. Cornyn betrays the trust of Texas and votes with the Democrats at every opportunity. A vote for John Cornyn is a vote for more debt that enslaves us, our children, and our grandchildren. I've said throughout my campaign, and I will say again, I will never vote to increase the federal debt. Now I pledge to filibuster every bill that seeks to do so. We cannot continue on this unsustainable path."

"I will never do procedural bait-and-switch voting like John Cornyn. Remarkably, as reported by the Washington Post, Steve Stockman initially supported suspension of the debt limit in the House as a nod to Speaker John Boehner before switching his vote when it became apparent that Boehner had enough votes for it."
Washington Post, January 23, 2013

"Texas needs a principled fighter who represents Texas alongside Ted Cruz. John Cornyn does not represent Texas. As a native and lifelong Texan, I know Texas. I've traveled the breadth of Texas and listened to Texans, unlike Cornyn or Stockman. This is exactly why I've now won 9 out of 9 straw polls."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term. Steve Stockman is a US Congressman.

Undefeated in Eight Straw Polls, Stovall Releases New Video in Bid against John Cornyn

Undefeated in Eight Straw Polls, Stovall Releases New Video in Bid against John Cornyn

(February 12, 2014) - After winning his eighth consecutive straw poll victory and more conservative endorsements, Dwayne Stovall's campaign released a video highlighting his decision to fight for Texas against DC insiders Sen. John Cornyn and Rep. Steve Stockman.

Stovall's video, "Stand Up and Fight," puts forward the case against a third term for Cornyn, highlighting his unconservative votes for increasing federal debt, passing NDAA, and opposing Sen. Ted Cruz in the battle to defund Obamacare. You can view the video at Stovall's website, http://texansforstovall.com/media.php#stand

Stovall won the straw poll of the Republican Liberty Caucus in Congressional District 36, which is Rep. Steve Stockman's district. Stockman placed 4th after Stovall, Cornyn, and Undecided, and has yet to win any straw polls.

Stovall said in a statement: "Thomas Jefferson warned us that governments degenerate when trusted to the rulers of the people. Sen. Cornyn has been in office for twelve years, and whatever fight he had for Texas left him long ago. He doesn't vote in the best interests of Texas, and in fact, even took his phones off the hook last year to avoid listening to Texans."

"I support term limits, and even though term limits for Congress is not yet law, Texans can implement term limits in this primary election. Two terms for a senator is enough."

Below is an unordered, partial list of the group endorsements and straw poll victories that Stovall has earned:

Nacogdoches County Republicans
Stand Across America
Young Republicans of Houston
Republican Liberty Caucus of CD 36
Katy LiberTea
Grassroots America - We the People
Southern Conservative
Kaufman Tea Party
Pearland Tea Party
Facebook Tea Party
TeaParty911
Montague County Tea Party
Sam Houston Tea Party
Cass County Tea Party
Wichita Falls Tea Party
Lake Jackson Tea Party
Ellis County
Tri-County Tea Party
Clearlake Tea Party
Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment
Alvin Tea Party
Nacogdoches Tea Party
Firefighters for Liberty

Hundreds of individual endorsements can be found at allforstovall.com.

An overwhelming number of conservative groups have given their support to Stovall, which accounts for his consistent straw poll victories.

Stovall said: "I'm grateful for the support. Texans deserve a senator who will listen to them, and neither Cornyn nor Stockman have invested themselves with the voters. They can buy all the ads that they want, but not too many are buying their ads. A blizzard of ads won't win Texans over, and gimmicks and stunts won't convince anyone that you're right for Texas."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall Earns Endorsement from Grassroots America and from Former Stockman Supporter and Wins Seventh Straw Poll

Stovall also wins the support and endorsement of Southern Conservative, a group that formerly supported Rep. Steve Stockman. Southern Conservative uses all means necessary to promote conservatism and remind the country of our roots.

Southern Conservative said in a statement: "Why has Southern Conservative now finalized support for Stovall? Stockman, after committing to attend multiple Tea Party Events, did not make an appearance or extend a courtesy call as to why. Southern Conservative believes that becoming an elected official is a privilege, and to earn that privilege starts with standing by your word and proving your sincere interest to fulfill the obligations you have made to your supporters. It has become evident to Southern Conservative that Stovall is the our State's best fit and has the overall framework to return our state back to the constitutional principles necessary to redirect our country to the fundamental values of our founding fathers."

Stovall said in a statement: "It has been my great privilege to spend the last year crisscrossing Texas and meeting thousands of Texans who love this State and America. I believe that candidates for office owe the public an opportunity to vet them, answering questions about their lives directly and thoroughly. I welcome the endorsement of Southern Conservative and look forward to working with them to promote conservatism and our country's founding principles."

Shortly after the endorsement, a separate group, the Houston Young Republicans, announced the results of their straw poll, and they overwhelmingly chose Dwayne Stovall as the winner. Stovall won with three-quarters of the votes cast, and Stockman and Cornyn split most of the small remainder. This is the seventh straw poll win, and that out of seven straw polls. Stovall has won every straw poll to date across a variety of conservative groups.

Stovall said: "I am honored and excited to win their support. Young Texans deserve to live their lives without a looming shadow of debt, and they deserve a senator who will never vote to increase the federal debt. I've made that commitment, and no other candidate has. Sen. John Cornyn can't - he's voted to increase debt many times in his two terms. He's been in Washington for too long."

"Texans deserve to thoroughly question candidates through town halls and debates and candidate forums. Neither Sen. Cornyn nor Rep. Stockman give Texans the time to take personal measure of them. Instead, Texans get an endless barrage of campaign marketing and no-shows at these events because these two men feel they have more important affairs to attend elsewhere."

"It's high time that Sen. Cornyn answer to the people of Texas for not listening to them."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall Wins Every Straw Poll to Date Against Cornyn and Stockman

(January 23, 2014) - In a straw poll, the Sam Houston Tea Party chose Tea Party favorite Dwayne Stovall as the winner in the race for the U.S. Senate in Texas. Of the three straw polls that have taken place in Texas thus far, Stovall has won all three and continues to win against Sen. John Cornyn and Rep. Steve Stockman.

Stovall said in a statement: "Thank you to the patriots in Walker County. My message of putting Texas first is the right way to keep Texas red, and Texans know that I will not ignore them as my opponent, Sen. Cornyn, has."

"The media mislabeled Steve Stockman as the Tea Party candidate. I spent the last year traveling the Lone Star State talking to thousands of Texas conservatives. Given the endorsements I've received from Tea Party groups such as Pearland, Alvin, and Kaufman and with these two Tea Party straw poll wins, I don't believe Stockman has earned that title. No Tea Party has endorsed Stockman."

"Sen. John Cornyn would love to say that he's beaten the Tea Party candidate, but that hasn't happened. In fact, the Tea Party candidate is beating him. We will continue to work hard to get our message out, just as we've done throughout this campaign. Texas deserves a second strong voice in the U.S. Senate, and that's worth every effort we can put forth."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall, Not Steve Stockman, is the Tea Party Candidate Who Beats U. S. Senator John Cornyn in Texas

(January 12, 2014) - Once again, in a head-to-head matchup with Sen. John Cornyn, Dwayne Stovall wins a straw poll against Cornyn and also Rep. Steve Stockman.

The Ellis County Tea Party just released the results of their straw poll, where all of the Republican candidates were listed on the ballot and had representation at the January 11th forum Saturday night. Dwayne Stovall, Texas candidate for U.S. Senate, won the straw poll by double the percentage of the nearest competitor, which wasn't incumbent Senator John Cornyn.

Rep. Steve Stockman, who has received much attention as the purported "tea party" challenger, got zero votes.

Stovall said in a statement, "Where the message of my campaign is heard, that message rings true with Texans. My message is simple: a senator from Texas should be putting Texas first. Senator Cornyn votes and works against the interests of Texans, and those who pay attention to Washington politics know it. His support for re-election is soft, and my wins at Ellis County and at the Nacogdoches Republican Party straw poll in December prove that out."

"The surprising thing to me is Rep. Stockman's poor showing, but as I traveled the Lone Star State all last year, the tea party groups to whom I've spoken hadn't really heard of Stockman because Stockman had never spoken to them."

"The media wants to prop up Stockman as the main challenger to Cornyn, but his support, as we see in this poll, is next to nothing. People outside of Texas imagine that a sitting Congressman stands a better chance, but when polling time comes, my message wins against Cornyn."

Dwayne Stovall is the only candidate in the U. S. Senate race to garner the support of tea party groups. Stovall received support from groups such as the Pearland Tea Party and the Kaufman Tea Party, and from many other tea party leaders throughout the state.

Stovall said: "The tea party challenger in this race is not Steve Stockman, and that is why I'm earning the endorsements of these groups and leaders."

"I want to thank all the Patriots from the Ellis County Tea Party for hosting such a great forum yesterday. Your hard work and effort paid off in an extremely well run and organized event."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Senator Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall Highlights Senator John Cornyn's Betrayal of Trust to Texas in voting for Obamacare Funding and in voting for Cloture

(January 8, 2014) - The campaign for Dwayne Stovall, Texas candidate for U.S. Senate, brings attention to the voting record of Sen. John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn votes for unconstitutional legislation and then attempts to mislead Texans about his votes. This is part of an ongoing series of press releases exposing the Congressional Record of Senator Cornyn.

Stovall said in a statement, "Senator Cornyn betrays the trust of Texans who sent him to Washington. He voted 'YEA' on the FY 2013 FUNDING BILL (March 23, 2013) that gave the Obama Administration the money needed to implement Obamacare. Subsequently, he also voted 'YEA' on 'CLOTURE' (September 24, 2013), which defeated the efforts of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to defund it."

"Senator Cornyn pays lip service to conservative principles, while his actions speak a clear lack of conviction to those same principles. As Texans, we must resolve to put the interests of Texans ahead back-room political deal-making."

"The Republican establishment's surrender to Harry Reid's Democrats and their agenda, led by Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn, was well recognized as a betrayal to the Republican base and continues to gather attention to itself. Current and future generations of Texans will now be forced to pay heavily for this socialized, job-killing legislation."

In September, Breitbart News reported that Senator John Cornyn used his leadership position to pressure other Republicans to oppose Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) in their efforts to defund. According to a senior staffer quoted in the news report, "Nobody is fighting harder to make sure Obamacare is funded than Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn."

Under pressure from the base, Senator Cornyn eventually said he supported the effort to defund.

Stovall noted, "During this primary cycle, Sen. Cornyn's political ads have asserted that he is 'conservative,' a claim that shouldn't require endless ad time. It's either true on its face, or it isn't true at all."

"The Republican establishment fears a fight for smaller government, and that fear cripples the Republican Party and causes division. The Republican Party was once known for being the party of small government, but a Republican leadership that is either afraid or unwilling to act on principle cannot represent the Republican base. Until we change the Republican leadership, there is little hope that we will change Washington."

Stovall said, "Obamacare is unaffordable, unworkable, unfair, and unconstitutional because health care was not granted as a power by the States to the federal government. John Cornyn had the clear opportunity to fight for the Constitution and for Texans, he ignored the overwhelming number of Texans who called his offices, and he made his choice to surrender to big government. I don't believe that Texas Republicans will vote for big government surrender in this primary."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Senator Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall Highlights Senator John Cornyn's Neglect of the U. S. Constitution in Sponsorship of S. 2729: Ensuring the Future Physician Workforce Act of 2008

(January 6, 2014) - Senator John Cornyn ignored the enumerated powers listed in the Constitution in his sponsorship of the "Ensuring the Future Physician Workforce Act of 2008." This is part of an ongoing series of press releases, each highlighting one unconstitutional bill personally sponsored by Sen. Cornyn.

Stovall said in a statement: "When government tries to manage an industry, the results can be calamitous, as we see now in the rollout of Obamacare. What makes matters worse is a disrespect for States' rights by many of today's politicians."

"Sen. Cornyn displays a consistent preference to continue big government programs rather than discourage them or work to safely dismantle them. After the passage of Obamacare, he said clearly that he did not want to repeal all of the law, and has often called to replace it with something else."

"The U. S. Constitution does not give the federal government power over health care. Politicians who ignore the 10th Amendment violate their sworn oath to protect the Constitution."

"Sen. Cornyn sponsored the 'Ensuring the Future Physician Workforce Act' in 2008 which tinkered with reimbursement rates, but what he should have done instead is work to sponsor legislation that pulls the federal government out of the health care industry. Texans deserve to enjoy a free market full of robust competition to drive prices downward and push efficiencies, not use the club of the federal government to fix prices."

"Politicians often imagine they are smart enough to craft solutions for us, but frankly, we can't afford Washington's solutions. Let Texans manage Texas and let's work to rid the health care industry of federal intrusion."

This national and unconstitutional bill, proposed and sponsored by Cornyn, never made it out of committee.

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall is a small businessman from Liberty County in the heart of Texas. He is married to his high school sweetheart of 22 years, and has three children. More information on the candidate and his campaign may be obtained at www.texansforstovall.com.

Dwayne Stovall Highlights Senator John Cornyn's Neglect of the U. S. Constitution in Sponsorship of S. 698: Line of Duty Act of 2013

(January 2, 2014) - The campaign for Dwayne Stovall, Texas candidate for U.S. Senate, discovered a disturbing pattern of ignoring the U. S. Constitution in the bills sponsored by Senator John Cornyn. This is part of an ongoing series of press releases, each highlighting one unconstitutional bill personally sponsored by Sen. Cornyn.

In 2013, Cornyn used the tragic murder of Texas district attorneys to step over the Constitution. He sponsored Senate Bill 698, the Line of Duty Act of 2013. The bill would "require the use of grant funds under the community-oriented policing services program to train and provide security details for prosecutors and judges."

Stovall said in a statement: "The U. S. Constitution is clear. The federal government has limited powers, and any powers not granted to the federal government belong to the States or to the people. That is the 10th Amendment. Any politician who ignores the 10th Amendment violates their sworn oath to protect the Constitution."

"This was not a federal issue; this was an issue in Texas that shouldn't become an issue for every other state. This power belongs to the Texas Legislature, according to the U. S. Constitution, and I'm sure that Sen. Cornyn agrees that the State of Texas is fully capable of determining whether or not it is necessary to create legislation to protect local prosecutors and judges."

"Additionally, the bill also sought to amend 'the federal criminal code to make it unlawful to kill, or attempt or conspire to kill.' Why would the senator feel the need to craft redundant legislation that nationalizes a horrible event in Texas and circumvents local authority?"

"Too often, local tragedies are nationalized through federal legislative action by members of Congress and senators who don't respect the Constitution. This all-too-common practice not only gives the federal government more power, it uses taxpayer money and drives our country deeper into debt."

This national unconstitutional bill, proposed and sponsored by Cornyn, never made it out of committee.

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall is a small businessman from Liberty County in the heart of Texas. He is married to his high school sweetheart of 22 years, and has three children. More information on the candidate and his campaign may be obtained at www.texansforstovall.com.

Dwayne Stovall Welcomes Steve Stockman to the Texas U. S. Senate Race

(December 9, 2013) - In a surprise last minute move, Rep. Steve Stockman has joined the U. S. Senate race in Texas. The decision runs counter to the discussion at a breakfast meeting Dwayne Stovall had with Rep. Stockman just a few days earlier, but Stockman's entry has hardened Stovall's supporters.

Stovall's campaign manager, Brett Rogers, assessed the situation this way. "In a race that is now almost certain to go to a runoff election, our people look forward to letting Stockman go head to head with Stovall for the Republican nomination."

Stovall released the following statement.

"I've known Rep. Stockman for some time. I believe his entry will bring some good humor to the race, and while humor is refreshing, our statewide grassroots organization strengthens by the day. This election is about honesty and an ability to remain close to and listen to the people of Texas."

"Our campaign is called Putting Texas First for a reason. If Texans are tired of establishment money buying a seat in Washington, they're about to watch a lot of it trade hands. I'd rather rely on the deep and passionate grassroots of the Lone Star State."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall Stands with Ted Cruz

It's come to my understanding that there is a false rumor going around in some circles that I don't like Ted Cruz. Let me put that to bed right now.

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.

This rumor might have come about because I believe that Congress is over-lawyered. I don't think any of us would disagree with that. Congress should represent the people more diversely, from industries that well represent the breadth of America.

Ted Cruz is part of the solution in Washington, DC, and I have nothing but respect for Senator Cruz. If you hear this rumor, please direct them to my news page on my website where I will have this posted.

In this election cycle, you will hear many things. Let's stick to the facts. We already have one senator working against the good things that Senator Cruz does. Texas doesn't need another, and I look forward to working with Ted Cruz in the Senate for the good of the Lone Star State.

Dwayne Stovall Defeats John Cornyn in Nacogdoches County Republican Party Straw Poll

(December 4, 2013) - Dwayne Stovall, Texas candidate for U.S. Senate, decisively won against Senator John Cornyn and others in the Nacogdoches County Republican Party Straw Poll on Tuesday evening, December 3, 2014.

Stovall was unable to attend the event, but released the following statement afterward:

"I'm humbled and grateful for the support in Nacogdoches County. As the word continues to spread across the great Lone Star State, our campaign to put Texas first proves to be winnable."

"Our message is simple: a senator from Texas serves as an ambassador for the state to Washington, and ought to represent the best interests of Texas. That is my aim - to win election and then serve Texas by ensuring that bills only receive a nod if it's what is best for Texas. Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case during Senator Cornyn's two terms in office."

"Many Texans advocate for term limits. I agree with that. I believe that the people see this election as a means of implementing those term limits."

"Establishment money in advertising did not win the poll last night, and Texans are smart enough to see through my opponent's ads that run contrary to his consistent record of voting to increase debt and the size of the federal government. This election, people are fired up, more than ever, at the idea of having two senators representing them in Washington, DC, who believe in the Constitution and America's founding principles."

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall is a small businessman from Liberty County in the heart of Texas. He is married to his high school sweetheart of 22 years, and has three children. More information on the candidate and his campaign may be obtained at www.texansforstovall.com.

Dwayne Stovall Files to Challenge John Cornyn in Texas Republican Senate Primary

(November 18, 2013) - Dwayne Stovall, a small businessman from Liberty County, formally filed his application to be on the ballot as a U.S. Senate candidate opposing current Senator John Cornyn in the Republican primary on Tuesday, March 4, 2014.

Stovall released the following statement this morning:

"It's time for the citizens of Texas to be represented by one of their own, a citizen statesman, rather than by a Washington-based elitist who serves special interests that are in opposition to the interests of Texas and its good citizens."

"The Constitutional role of a United States Senator from the Lone Star State is to put the best interests of Texas first."

"During his tenure in the United States Senate, the federal government has continued to relentlessly encroach on the rights of Texas and Texans. When John Cornyn went to Washington as our senator 11 years ago, the federal deficit was $6 trillion. Today, it's $17 trillion, almost triple."

"It's time for that to stop. It's time to represent Texas in Washington, DC, and it's time for the citizens of Texas to be represented by one of them, a citizen statesman, rather than by the nationalist interests of the elites in Washington."

"My campaign will not be won with establishment money. I've traveled across Texas and spoken to thousands of Texans throughout the year. They are fired up at the idea of having two senators representing them in Washington, DC, who believe in the Constitution and America's founding principles."

"Federalism, Republicanism, and limited government - these are sorely lacking from Sen. Cornyn's voting record. I have stepped forward to unapologetically advocate for the values of Texans and for putting Texas first. "

Stovall is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator John Cornyn. Sen. Cornyn is running for re-election to his third six-year term.

Dwayne Stovall is a small businessman from Liberty County in the heart of Texas. He is married to his high school sweetheart of 22 years, and has three children. More information on the candidate and his campaign may be obtained at www.texansforstovall.com.
