About a month ago, I noted that Kevin Roberts and his supporters were getting desperate in their quest to win CD2 over Dan Crenshaw. As the election nears and it becomes clear that Dan Crenshaw continues to gain momentum, Kevin Roberts and friends are getting shriller and shriller and shriller.
A reader that lives in the district received this mailer yesterday:
Geez, does Kevin Roberts and friends really think that will work? Goodness, I’m beginning to think that political consultants are idiots. This mailer was sent by Austin based Conservative Results Matter. FEC files list Deanna Hayes of Cedar Park as the treasurer. The mailing address goes to a box at Not Just Mail. The PAC thus far has spent $141,000 attacking Crenshaw, all paid to a firm in Maryland called Mentzer Media Services (click here to view).
If you think that mailer is effective, well, I hear there is ocean front property available near El Paso. But that mailer has nothing on Kevin Roberts’ own words concerning Americans that serve in the military. Take a listen:
Just bizarre. What was Kevin Roberts thinking? His campaign is beginning to look like Kathaleen Wall’s. Goodness.
Perhaps that is why former Gov. Rick Perry decided to cut a radio ad endorsing Dan Crenshaw. Check it out:
Okay CD2 voters, the choice is yours. An office manager at a plaintiff’s law firm or a guy that served his country in the real world.
I’d vote for Dan Crenshaw if I lived in CD2.
