    This is proof that there's too many money in politics.

    Who cares? You say?
    Tell that to those college students who see sky rocketing tuition rates. Tell it to land owners, ranchers, and farmers who wanted a better water policy.

  • Really… Really… Really? Some people think everybody is stupid. How can a person tell her district that she is quitting because of family illness, but yet jump back in? Gee, I though the Republican Party was about Family Values. How supporters of that person can makes excuses about campaigning in Nueces County, but yet that person has an office in Austin, Texas?
    Now come on now we are not stupid. Local Democrats, stop being defeatist and scared and challenge this hypocrite in office. If y’all won’t, then someone need to step up to the plate and run as an independent or a write-in candidate.

  • Who would beleive anything she says anyway, She is a proven dishonest person.

  • "that the redrawn district would have required too much travel time".....She means she may have had to actually work. She hasn't had an independent thought since her election. Todd Hunter ain't my favorite guy, but he would serve the district much better.

  • Well what we have here is a Christmas miracle !!!

    From serious family illness to cured !!!

    brings a tear to the eye

  • Leave it to the same old haters to spout off about things they know nothing about... Mrs. Morrison does indeed have a family member who is very ill. Campaigning in Nueces County would have required a great deal of time away at a time when she really needs to stay closer to home. Good luck, Geanie!

  • I do believe she did say that. However, if you looked at the proposed map, she was going to have less to the west and she was just picking up a portion of Hunter's previous district. It wasn't like they were adding Lubbock to her district.

    It was a graceful way for her to say she couldn't compete with Hunter who has her out-gunned financially. Hunter has hit the ground running in the Victoria area.

    It was a local bunch who had a social for Todd Hunter, not Geanie Morrison a week ago.

  • Surprising after recent announcement to the contrary
    Guess that illness healed up over the weekend.

    Well, seemingly when a politician opens their mouth, contraindications fall out.

    Maybe that is what the saying "talking out of both sides of your mouth" means. .

  • I believe she said that representing another district would require a great deal of travel, and at this time she needed to focus on being there for an ill family member rather than travel. Obviously, representing her current district will require less travel, and therefore less time away from her family.

  • This is interesting. I thought she was dropping out because of a serious family illness. At least that is what she said in an Advocate story on December 9th.

    I am very happy to hear there has been a speedy recovery.
