United Conservative Coalition of Texas Sponsors a Get Out The Vote Rally
FORT WORTH, Texas, February 8, 2010 -- The United Conservative Coalition of Texas – an organization representing over a dozen Tea Party, 912 and other conservative groups in North Texas – will be conducting the largest pre-primary Get Out The Vote rally in Texas history on February 20, 2010 at the historic Cowtown Coliseum in the Fort Worth Stockyards. Every candidate on the Republican Party ballot has been invited to attend. The highlight of the event is the highly contested Texas Governor’s race. Of the three candidates, Debra Medina, the insurgent candidate for the Republican nomination for Governor, has confirmed her attendance. Over two dozen other candidates for national, state and local offices have also confirmed.
Adrian Murray, local businessman and president of the Fort Worth 912 Project and a member of the UCCOT, said, “2010 will be the most critical election in this nation’s history. While there is a tendency for hyperbole each election cycle, there can be no doubting that who controls the US House and Senate, as well as the legislature in Austin, will set the agenda starting in January 2011. That agenda will either be more big government takeover of our lives, more wasteful spending, more shredding of the Constitution or it will not. The only way to ensure a return to fiscal and governmental sanity is by nominating and electing principled conservatives to office.”
The aim of the rally, according to Murray, is give voters an opportunity to meet and listen to all the candidates to make an informed decision. “The event will be right in the middle of early voting and we will encourage voters to go straight from the rally to the polls. The key to victory is motivating and mobilizing voters, especially those who normally sit out primaries. Don’t complain in November if you’re not satisfied with your choices.”
The Cowtown Coliseum has seating for 2,300 plus room for another 700 on the arena floor. Murray expects every seat to be filled. “Since the presidential election in 2008 and the relentless assaults on freedom and liberty that have ensued, particularly with health care and cap and trade, people who have never paid attention to a primary in their lives are now alert and highly motivated. Those attending this event will be part of history. Never before has a group of private citizens attempted an undertaking of this size and complexity. But if we are going to save this nation and return to constitutional principles we have to be willing to try things that have never been tried before.”
HIGH NOON IN COWTOWN begins at 12:00 pm on Saturday, February 20, 2010.
