Hello again Julie "Mama Bexar",

Thank you for coordinating your recent blood drive with the Armed Services Blood Program. It was a resounding success thanks to all of your hard work as Site Coordinator.

The efforts of SATX Republican Party have always been greatly appreciated and your support of the ASBP will go a long way toward replenishing blood supplies and ultimately saving lives in theater and across the military community. In addition, we very much appreciate your efforts during this crucial time, when many Warriors are deferred from donating due to service overseas.

We truly appreciate all the hard work that goes into each drive. Thank you again for helping the Armed Services Blood Program and our deployed troops.

Very Respectfully,
Azeb Gordon

Decison for Texans Gubernatorial Debate, March 1st

Debra Medina (photo)
Gubernatorial candidate

Decision For Texans Gubernatorial Debate was created in response to the large number of requests from members of various grassroots organizations around Texas to have a final debate before the Primary.

The reason sited most has been the national media attention caused by the controversial interview between Debra Medina & Glenn Beck. Many members of these organizations have voiced concern over having a Nationally known political commentator from New York insert himself into Texas politics. It was from that concern that inviting Glenn Beck to be a participant was born.

This will give Texans a chance in a moderated and fair forum to hear both sides of the issues. Decision For Texans Committee is solely responsible for the structure and content of the debate. The committee's only function is to setup a fair debate for the participants.Young Americans for Liberty UTSA is the host for the location of the debate at University of Texas at San Antonio.

In the Retama Auditorium on campus, panel members and moderator to be announced soon.

We have a venue UTSA, a date & time, March 1, 7 p.m. now all we need is the three top candidates to come. Invitations to all candidates have been sent. Glenn Beck has been invited to participate for the reasons stated above.

The criteria is that all three candidates must agree to participate for the debate to take place on March 1st. Glenn Beck's participation is not required but has been requested. You can join the other sponsors and help make this debate a reality. Please show your support for this debate by choosing to "attend" it's not about actually attending it's voting in support of a third debate.

Candidate Status:
Rick Perry
Not Confirmed
Kay Baily Hutchinson

Debra Medina

Francisco Canseco needs your help on election day, 3-2

Election Day is less than a week away and we need your help. Francisco Canseco is the constitutional conservative Republican we need in the Texas 23rd Congressional District. He will always work for small government and lower taxes. Now is the time we must help Francisco Canseco and win back the 23rd for conservative values.

After months of hard work calling voters and knocking on doors we are in a very tight campaign to win our primary on Election Day, but we need your help to get over the finish line. We need to knock on a few more doors and make a few more calls to be victorious on Election Day. If you have a few spare moments this weekend and can help us please let us know.

It will take all the hard work and spare time you can give to get Francisco Canseco elected. We have phone banking at our office all day beginning Saturday February 27th and continuing until the polls close on Tuesday March 2nd.

Additionally if you live in the 23rd make sure you get out and vote early. Early voting is open until Friday and will save you time on Election Day.

If you can spare a few moments to volunteer your time please give me or our office a call, or simply reply to this email and let us know we can count on your support this weekend. You can reach me at 210-861-8626 or email me at
