The Following Conservative Organizations have Endorsed Charles Perry for the State Senate District 28 Special Election

Charles Perry, Grassroots Candidate for SD28 Senate

 Seat Vacated by Robert Duncan

State Senator Robert Duncan’s resignation provides an excellent opportunity for the election of a conservative successor in SD 28.  Duncan had a dismal record and was one of the most liberal members in the senate.

 Charles Perry may well be that candidate.  Perry has very good conservative record as a state representative and has demonstrated courage and principle over political advantage.

 Opposed Liberal Speaker Joe Straus

Chad Hasty, CFYO Talk Radio stated that “There is no arguing that [Perry] is conservative and he sticks to his guns. Perry didn’t support Rep. Joe Straus even when he knew that Straus was going to survive as Speaker.”

 Perry was supported by Accountability First PAC, a political action committee targeting Joe Straus and his inner circle. 

 Powerful Endorsements

 Perry was endorsed by both Texans for Fiscal Responsibility and Young Conservatives of Texas in the recent Republican Primary for state representative.   Michael Quinn Sullivan, president of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, stated that “Charles Perry proved himself to be a strong, commonsense conservative who put the needs of his constituents ahead of the special interests in Austin.  Vote after vote, issue after issue, Charles Perry could be counted on to do what was best for his constituents, the people of Texas, and future of the state’s economy.”  Perry earned the “Taxpayer Champion Award” for his rating on the Fiscal Responsibility Index, which examines legislators recorded votes during the legislative session.  Jeff Morris, Young Conservatives of Texas State Chairman, added: “Charles Perry kept his campaign promises, including fighting waste and fraud in Medicaid and helping to pass a Voter ID law.”

 Perry’s Defeat of Long Term Establishment RINO Delwin Jones

 Perry ran a grassroots campaign for state representative as a tea party conservative in 2010 to soundly defeat the long term establishment RINO Delwin Jones.  Jones largely relied on Joe Straus and the Austin lobby for his campaign.  Rep. Jones was one of the 11 Republicans who joined with 65 Democrats in 2009 to topple the previous speaker and install Joe Straus. (Source:  Empower Texans)

Perry is affiliated with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants, the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts, and the National Association of Securities Dealers.

The battle over Texas  

Now is the time to get Joe Straus out 

By Dr. Kyle Scott, Red State, 6/25/14

Texas Representative Scott Turner is making his way around Texas, taking his conservative message directly to the people, to explain why he, and not Joe Straus, should be Speaker in the Texas House of Representatives. The message is simple: without a conservative

Speaker there will be no conservative legislation. Conservative leadership in the House is required if Texas wants conservative solutions to the challenges that lie ahead. The Lt. Governor and the Governor are powerful positions in the Texas state government, but without a conservative Speaker in the House, Texans will have to brace themselves for continued excessive spending and a liberal social agenda.

With Dan Patrick as Lt. Governor and Greg Abbott in the Governor's seat, Scott Turner would complete the conservative triumvirate that Texas needs to properly navigate next session and beyond.

The Speaker is not elected by the people of Texas but by the members of the House. So the best way to get Straus out of the Speakership is to put pressure on those representatives. And, if they don't do it, elect someone who will. As the old adage goes: we will never change our leaders until we change the people who elect them. Texas needs Rep. Scott Turner as our next Speaker of the House.
