Georgetown hosted both Texas Senators October 23 for a Republican Rally at the ballroom in Sun City. The standing-room-only crowd heard from and took photos with all of the Republican candidates who were on hand to encourage voters to see the races through the final 14 days and, above all, to vote.
Judge Bill Gravell opened the rally with a prayer and said of the event, “Senator Cruz was very dynamic, but the best part for me was being able to turn to my U.S. Congressman [John Carter] and hear a man who works harder, covers more territory and was with the United States President just the night before. The passion and energy I’ve seen among Republicans in the past two days is inspiring. I can only compare it to the strength and energy I saw in college when we elected Ronald Reagan.”
As of late Tuesday, Travis County had recorded 28,000 early voters to Williamson County’s 21,000. “When you consider,” Gravell says, “Travis has twice the number of registered voters we do, our numbers are tremendous. Having our senators in the same room shows we are on the national radar and our voters care!” Polling locations reported lines with as much an hour wait, all day long, over the first two days of early voting.
Senator Cruz got his greatest applause when he reflected on how angry the party is over the treatment of Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch. “I bring a message to you from President Trump, which is we got a whole lot more work to do ahead of us.” He identified low national unemployment, higher oil production and a booming Texas economy among the recent party achievements. He is also continuing the fight for Second Amendment rights and to “repeal the train wreck that is Obamacare… because Texas is in our DNA.”
Early voting continues through November 2, and Election Day is Tuesday, November 6. Visit Wilco.org/elections for polling locations.
