This was an easy decision: The freshman incumbent in this Stephenville area district is JD Sheffield, whose voting record demonstrates the truest definition of a RINO (Fiscal Responsibility of 27.5% – lower than a DEMOCRAT- and Eagle Forum rating of 48%). His initial election was only made possible by a concerted effort by Democrats to unseat Rep. Miller by flooding the previous Republican primary.
Fortunately, Erath County GOP Chairman Danny Pelton has stepped up to get representation closer to the conservative nature of the constituency. Danny works for a medical equipment company and owns a small ranch. He has served as precinct Chairman, GOP County Chairman and was elected to the Republican Executive Committee. A very strong second amendment and fiscal conservative, Danny will definitively retain his conservative principles in office.
We look forward to working to assist Danny as we can in getting the word out of the conservative choice in District 59 .
