Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who bravely stood up to municipal officials and re-opened her business during the Wuhan virus pandemic, announced on August 22, 2020 that she will be running for the Texas State Senate.
According to a report from the Texas Tribune, Luther is a resident of Denton Country and has been flirting with the idea of running to replace State Senator Pat Fallon in a special election set to take place now that Fallon is now heading to Congress.
“You better bet I’m putting my hat in the ring,” Luther said at a “Back the Blue” rally in support of law enforcement in Denton County.
Luther established herself as a folk hero for many on the right in 2020 after she received jail time for contempt of court after refusing to apologize for reopening her salon in violation of the law. Two days later she was set free following Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s decision to remove the threat of jail time from an executive order. The Texas Supreme Court then granted a motion for her release.
During the rally, Luther marketed herself as an individual who would “stand up and go to jail for you.” Luther declared that she would “do it again and again because I’m gonna fight to keep our Texas values.” She posted these comments in a Twitter video.

Luther will more than likely have challengers for her seat. Denton Mayor Chris Watts appointed a campaign treasurer for the vacant seat, and Republican State Representative Drew Springer is also eyeing the state Senate seat.
Former State Representative Jonathan Stickland recently purchased property inside Senate District 30 but admitted last week that he is ineligible to participate in this race. Per the Texas Constitution, people running for state Senate must live in the district for a year before the election.
Should Luther win, she would be a great addition to a Texas state legislature that has been filled with disappointment in recent legislative sessions.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
