The Paul Simpson for Republican County Chair campaign is pleased and honored to announced yet another endorsement to our growing list of Conservative Republican officials, leaders, and grassroots activists endorsing Paul Simpson as our next Harris County Republican party Chair.

Maria Espinoza, President of Eagle Forum-Houston, has announced her support for Paul Simpson for Harris County Republican Party Chair in the upcoming primary:

“Paul is the pro-life conservative who can rebuild the grassroots in Houston, and provide the much-needed conservative leadership. The kind of leadership that will fight for Family, Faith and Freedom.  There is too much at stake to continue down the same failing path.
That’s why I’m supporting Paul Simpson for Harris County Republican Party Chair.”

 Maria Espinoza, President, Eagle Forum-Houston

Conservative Slates Endorse Jared Woodfill

Terry Lowry, Steve Hotze, MD., & Gary Polland all back Jared Woodfill

It’s official.  The slates are in, and they support Jared Woodfill.  At a time when Republicans are engaged in a war for the soul of America, we need to stick with proven, conservative leadership.

As the race heats up, I’ll try to keep track of these endorsements. Obviously Simpson has a steep hill to climb with the big three “pay for play” slates siding with Woodfill but that was not unexpected. Jared effectively used the “conservative leader” meme that was opened up and Lowry’s endorsement was probably sealed when County Judge Ed Emmett went with Simpson.

The battle lines are becoming clearer – will Simpson be able to turn out Emmett’s “November Republican” voters? Will the endorsement from Espinoza help Simpson overcome the perception that he is anti-social conservative? Can Woodfill hold his base in a year when many voters seem to want change for the sake of change?

      George, I put it in the Menu bar above titled 2014 Harris County Republican Party Primary Endorsement Matrix. I’ll update it as we go. Lowry and Polland have not released their entire slate yet.
