dope. The repugs have been in charge of this office in the recent past, making closed-door sweetheart deals.

Powell is a political hack. A left over of a generation that should pass us and retire.

So in this race who do you consider "old" and who do you consider "new"? They both fit either description.

It seems that Rush has a lot more conection to Bill Richardson. If that is a factor in any voters mind it may have some bearing. Ray Powell has always been no fan of Bills just like Denish, but might be considered by uninformed voters to be connected with him.

Are we saying that the current incumbent is connected with the administration, or the ex-incumbent?

I asked a logical question. They have both served in this position. They both have served under Richardson. Powell was very much at odds with Bill. Who would you consider the "old" and who would you consider the "new"?

Do you honestly not understand what I am asking?

Answer: Birds of a fether, flock together. Both have done the job, but I seek what one would consider a clean sweep of Santa Fe.

If you are in, I will vote you out.

So you are saying that you will vote for Powell, since he was in first but not in now?

Me too, becasue I know he was against Bill and supported Denish. I beleive that the fellow we have in there today (the Republican)is Bill's lapdog.

But BOTH candidates are/were incumbents and a blind vote for the fellow that is NOT an incumbent is just dumb. Why not choose the best candidate based on qualifications rather than simply cast a blind vote? You may as well be voting a straight ticket, voting for only whites, or voting only for men. Being tied into a partisan ideology or a fized plan is just giving power to the people that you want to keep out of office. Dont let a slogan or a party convince you of how to vote or why.

VOTE THE CANDIDATE AND THE QUALIFICATIONS

If Ray Powell would have been the incumbent (as he could well have been)you would have voted for the other guy just becasue he was not in the position?

Just asking. Trying to make some logic out of it is all. I have never considered filling an important job based on just one criteria and ignored all others. I am just wonedering if you choose your doctor or lawyer like you choose your leaders... Longest sraw?

"Build Up" is right. Matt Rush has never served in any political office before and he is not a big bill blind supporter. He is in this race because he truly understands and is passionate about the State Land Office. If you don't have the chance to hear his message in person, you should visit his website at mattrush2010.com & learn what this candidate is truly about.

For months Mr. Matt Rush, candidate for the all-important State Land Commissioner, has been fibbing about having an associate degree from Lubbock Christian University. How can anyone vote for guy for a $90,000 salaried job?

He is a member of the Ethos Leadership Group where he says he "earned his degree in Agriculture and Business from Lubbock Christian University" implying he graduated the school with a full degree. The Group "assist organizations and individuals in their enhancement of professionalism, leadership, and fundraising."

It is interesting that Matt Rush is a paid speaker. He wants $3,000 to $4,500 to speak!

Here is a campaign video for Matt Rush. Note there is a problem with him spelling State Land Comissioner (sic). In addition he stressed that Christians need to take back America and make this a Christian nation.

I am a Christian but I not voting for this outlandish candidate!
