Honoring Those Who Gave All
We are grateful to those who have served and sacrificed to preserve our Republic and our system of self-government. Memorial Day should give pause for thought to citizens committed to free and fair elections. When exercising a key voter’s right – questioning election authority – there is ample opportunity to feel tremendous levels of frustration when seeking the truth. Memorial Day always manages to offer perspective; as difficult as research and advocacy can be for our shared cause, we must be grateful for those who sacrificed all to preserve our nation. This weekend, take time to remember those in your community who fought for your rights and freedoms.

The fraudulent ballots allowed for a margin of victory of just 16 votes. The City of Weslaco will have to make preparations for a new election, unless the losing party petitions the Texas Supreme Court. Click here to read more.
