Labor Day in the Obama era is a painful reminder that far too many Americans have no jobs at all. Twenty-three million –as many people as live in Australia – are out of work or lacking full-time jobs in President Obama’s America.
Texas shows that strong conservative leadership can change that. In the month of July, Texas added 17,800 jobs. Between July 2011 and July 2012, Texas added 222,500 nonfarm jobs. For the last 67 months, the Texas unemployment rate has consistently been at or below the national unemployment rate.

"I congratulate Ted Cruz on a hard-fought victory and a well-executed campaign. Ted is a force to be reckoned with: an excellent candidate and a great conservative communicator. I call on all conservative Texans to rally behind Ted Cruz in November so we can remake the U.S. Senate in the image of Texas for the good of all Americans.
Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst fought a valiant fight. I’m proud to call David my friend. He and I will stand shoulder to shoulder once again in the spring, fighting for Texas -- the most conservative state in America.
Tomorrow is a very important day – runoff election day. A lot of the pundits said voters would be too busy with summer trips to turn out to vote in large numbers. Of course, they said the same thing about a May primary election the day after Memorial Day.
So I ask you to prove them wrong, and do your duty by voting in tomorrow’s runoff election. There are very important statewide contests on the ballot, in addition to a number of runoffs for local office and the state legislature.
