Some group has begun cold calling residents with Republican Texas state representatives and bashing the Speaker's efforts to resist Patrick's bigoted agenda. This group is asking Texans to call their Republican representatives and tell them to oust Strauss as Speaker.
I am asking you, Mamas, to do the opposite.
If you live in a district with a Republican state representative (I do - Hunter), please call your state rep. and ask them to support the Speaker. Tell them how much we mamas appreciate the Speaker. Tell them we wish they could be less cowardly and more like the Speaker.
The Speaker is a Republican, too, but he has something of a moral compass. Imagine that.
