Konni Burton, the Tea Party activist running against Wendy Davis for Texas State Senate District 10, has released a new campaign video, declaring her campaign is ready to win back the district for the Republican Party and calling for supporters to unite behind her. Citing recent developments in Washington to combat big government programs like ObamaCare, Burton says such events are part of a political grassroots movement she hopes will bring her campaign victory next year.
Burton makes no mention of her possible opponent, which appears will no longer be Wendy Davis. Although there has been no official announcement, it appears Davis will indeed run for Governor of Texas. Her announcement is expected October 1, and that will bring the District 10 opponent situation into focus.
Either way, Burton is running full-speed to establish herself as the front runner for the Republican Party. In a statement released with the video, Burton makes it clear her campaign has the momentum, and is trying to solidify her support:
Watching conservatives in Washington fight to defund Obamacare and put a stop to out of control spending and government overreach is pretty inspiring. It’s that kind of attitude that I’m hoping to bring to Austin on behalf of the people in Senate District 10.
Our campaign is equipped with the kind of grassroots support you need to win an election. Having so many friends and supporters around the district makes campaigning a lot of fun, as well. I recently shot this short video talking about my conservative priorities, our grassroots strategy, and how to connect with the campaign so that together we can have real, conservative representation in the Texas Senate.
