From Donna and Wayne Garner:
The Special Runoff Election between David Sibley and Lt. Col. Brian Birdwell for the unexpired term of Texas State Senator (District 22) is this coming Tuesday, June 22, 2010, from 7:00 A. M. to 7:00 P. M.

Our choice is definitely Lt. Col. Brian Birdwell. He is a committed fiscal conservative who values the sanctity of life and the traditional values upon which our country is founded.
On the other hand, David Sibley is a committed “politician” who made over $13.6 Million in seven years as a big-time lobbyist; much of his money was made from the tobacco and alcohol industries.
From Empower Texans (please see article below) and the Waco Tribune-Herald, we learn that Sibley is being supported by Democrat Bernard Rapoport who has given almost $700 thousand to Planned Parenthood of Waco, Texas.
The Washington Times reported yesterday that Planned Parenthod has systematically killed more than 1.8 million pre-born babies between 2002 and 2008.
Why would a pro-abortion Democrat such as Bernard Rapoport be supporting David Sibley who supposedly is a Republican? You can answer that question at the ballot box on Tuesday by voting for Lt. Col. Brian Birdwell.

Sibley Keeping Liberal Company
Submitted by MQSullivan on Fri, 06/18/2010 - 2:13pm.
I was taught growing up that "bad company corrupts good character," and that a man can be defined by his friends. Kind of makes you wonder, then, what David Sibley is doing hanging around with the likes of leftist Bernard Rappoport.
This is the same Bernard Rappoport who has given more than a half-million dollars to Planned Parenthood, and is a major donor to the Texas Democratic Party and Democratic Trust.
Now Mr. Rappoport is supporting David Sibley in the Senate District 22 special election. According to today's Waco Tribune Herald, Democratic voters are getting calls from Rappoport, encouraging them to support Sibley.
Not that they need much encouragement. After all, Mr. Sibley spent almost $250,000 supporting a failed attempt to defeat stalwart conservative State Rep. Doc Anderson (R-Waco). And Mr. Sibley has contributed to far-left Democrats, like Waco's own Jim Dunnam.
Mr. Sibley previously served in the Texas Senate, where he was responsible for creating numerous taxing entities and authored legislation expanding the welfare.
As you might guess, Mr. Sibley has done nothing to disassociate himself from the rabble-rousing liberals despite running as a Republican in this special open-seat election.
Empower Texans and Texans for Fiscal Responsibility has endorsed Brian Birdwell, a strong conservative Republican who -- though badly injured -- survived the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon. He's a decorated veteran and committed fiscal conservative.
(There are two Republicans in this election because it is a "special" to fill the unexpired term of the previous officeholder. It was a four-man race in the first round, three Republicans and one Democrat.)
The special election for the seat will be held this Tuesday, June 22. Turn-out is expected to be low.
