Is Craig Eiland trying to sneak a Democrat into House District 23?

And no, I’m not talking about Judge Susan Criss on the Democratic side of the ballot. I’m talking about Robert David “Bob” Senter, who is running in the Republican Primary against solid Republican Wayne Faircloth. Let’s take a look at the voting history of both candidates.

First Bob Senter:

As you can see, the first time Bob Senter voted in a primary was 2008 – what are the odds that he voted for Barack Obama?

Now let’s look at Wayne Faircloth’s voting history:

Now that is what you call a “Hard Republican” voter.

But wait! There’s more! Let’s take a look at Bob Senter’s campaign treasurer, Georgia Ann Meyer’s voting history.

Hmm. Looks like a duck, walks like a duck, it is probably a Democrat, right?

Now let’s take a look at Bob Senter’s campaign finances. Over 40% of his total contributions, excluding those from Austin PAC’s, comes from Democrats or Independent voters.

I’ve created a table of his contributions, again, excluding Austin PAC’s.

Now, if all of that isn’t enough to convince you that Bob Senter is supported by Democrats and is trying to sneak in as a Republican, how about a poll that his campaign commissioned that asked this question testing his viability as a candidate?

 “Bob Senter’s campaign has taken money from, and is supported by, several known Democrats.”

He paid Baselice & Associates $15,650 to ask that question as reported on his 30 day finance report.

Galveston County voters, you have worked way too hard turning that county red to elect a Democrat pretending to be a Republican in House District 23. It is great that Craig Eiland saw the writing on the wall and got out of town (well, he already lived out of town but you know what I mean) before you kicked him out. Don’t let him sneak in through the back door.

Vote for the only Republican in the Republican Primary – Wayne Faircloth. Read more about Wayne from the 2012 campaign.

    An interesting classification of Hard Democrat. Wonder how was that determined since as the person referenced was not aware of such strong political alignment. Please reveal methodology in determining such erroneous political stand.

    Wayne is a great candidate. Anyone who spends five minutes talking to him will see his compassion and unwavering commitment to his values and helping those around him. He will listen with understandig to everyone and lead with dignity. He is the type of passionate, honest, no nonsense man we need in the house.
