EXCLUSIVE: Former Democrat House Candidate Blasts DCCC Tactics in Texas

Published

on

GEORGETOWN, TEXAS — A previous Democrat primary challenger in the Austin-area race for incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. John Carter’s seat is now criticizing the favorite of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

Big League Politics reported Thursday morning, Mar. 7:

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer from New York is recruiting M.J. Hegar, the Democrat who ultimately lost a congressional race in 2018 to Texas Republican Rep. John Carter in Georgetown, Texas.

A veteran, something the DCCC particularly considers a desirable quality for candidates it supports (above any other quality a candidate may possess), Hegar ran a close race against Carter — who barely retained his seat in 2018

The photo above (credit: NYT, 2019) shows that Carter actually lost the traditionally-conservative Williamson County, which is significant indicator of the trends in that part of Texas.

That’s in part because of Dr. Christine Mann — a medical doctor who also ran on the Democratic ticket in 2018 against Rep. Carter.

As TDTNews reported in May, 2018, “Hegar, 42, easily defeated Cedar Park physician Christine Eady Mann, 53, on Tuesday. As of 9 p.m. Tuesday, Hegar had 62.1 percent to Mann’s 37.9 percent.”

Big League Politics reached out to Mann:

“While I am excited that the DCCC is once again targeting District 31, I hope that they will not continue the tactics that they employed in the 2018 House races, including asking ‘non-chosen’ candidates to drop out, discouraging progressive candidates from participating, unfairly connecting only ‘their’ candidates to donor networks, and, in the case of Texas House District 07, outright smearing of a strong candidate.”

Mann is also critical of how the national party machinery is less effective after primaries, and says it is even disruptive during the primaries.

“Voters are best served when Washington elites support their party’s candidates after the primary, and without interference in the primary process,” Mann explained to Big League.

“To do other than that is to imply that they know better than local voters, and that they are afraid to let voters decide who best represents them,” she continued.

Dr. Christine Mann is strongly considering a fresh run in District 31 during the 2020 cycle.

Hispanic Oregon Candidate Fesses Up to Committing a Race Hoax

Published

on

A race hustler recently admitted to writing a racist letter to himself.

Jonathan Lopez, a candidate for Umatilla County commissioner, fessed up to writing an anonymous racist letter on July 6, 2020.

According to the Washington Times, Lopez claimed to have received the letter in June.

But he then confessed to the police that he was the individual who wrote the letter, the East Oregonian reported.

Lopez is Hispanic and claimed that he found a letter directed to him which was allegedly filled with racist language on June 23. He published the photo of a typed letter on Facebook, which hundreds of users shared in a span of 24 hours. Since then, the post has been removed.

Things changed, though, when police did a follow-up with Lopez about the incident on July 3. Law enforcement officials recounted that Lopez confessed to being the author of the letter.

“The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today,” Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said to the newspaper.

Edmiston then said the case would be sent over to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office. From there it would be reviewed for initiating a false report, which is a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.

Lopez ended up losing a primary election for a seat on the Umatilla County Board of Commissioners in May 2020.

In correspondence with the East Oregonian, Lopez claimed that he wanted to have a discussion with Edmiston about racism in Umatilla County. He used the letter as an example of the alleged racism that people experienced on a daily basis.

“I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” he stated. Lopez added that he “never meant to mislead” the public.

America is going through a late stage of political correctness, where all sorts of grievance politics is encouraged against normal Americans.

A polity with such internal turmoil is destined for social instability sooner or later.
