Matt Beebe for Texas House - District 121Matt Beebe
Republican Candidate for Texas House District 121

March 19, 2012

In a surprise announcement today,’s founder, Michael Kinzie, announced his personal endorsement of Matt Beebe for the Texas House of Representatives in District 121 in the San Antonio area. Prior to today’s announcement, Kinzie had never before personally endorsed any candidate since his involvement in the TEA Party dating back to April 15, 2009.

View the press release.

When asked why the break from his tradition of not endorsing candidates, Kinzie stated, “You have a unique situation in this particular race. In many races across Texas, voters normally have to hold their nose and vote for the lesser of two evils. Not so in this race. I envy the voters in HD 121 because they have the opportunity to vote against Joe Straus and for Matt Beebe with equal enthusiasm. Beebe is the only conservative in the race and has the credentials to prove it. Straus only claims to be conservative however his deeds do not support those claims.”

Beebe vs. Straus in the race for the Republican nomination as the Representative for the Texas House in District 121 is the perfect example of “David vs. Goliath.” Straus has amassed a huge campaign war chest largely from donations outside of the district and many donations from outside of the state which is unusual for a state representative. A large portion of the out-of-state donations come from the gaming industry.

Beebe on the other hand, while outmatched in dollars, has overwhelming grassroots support across the state. TEA Party, 912, We the People, Grassroots America, and many other conservative groups in Texas have been sending volunteers to San Antonio to assist in door-to-door campaigning in support of Beebe. Volunteers for the Beebe campaign have been coming in from Tyler, Longview, Dallas, Fort Worth, and across the state at their own expense to assist in campaigning for Matt Beebe.

Kinzie concludes his statement with, “This is probably THE most important race in the state. The fate of Texas may well be determined by the voters of HD 121, not only for the next two years but for generations.”
