Todd Staples is a very soft spoken Southern gentlemen, like a Clay Akin of sorts. His TV ads having him riding a horse and talking with a FAKE Southern drawl; to look and sound like an average East Texas good ol' boy redneck. This guy was born with a silver boot up his little butt. Loose the fake voice. I'm a Republican who is voting for Hank because I'd rather see a real Democrat fail, than a rancher's boy act like he knows what he's doing. Go back to the Palestine county fair boy.

P.S. have you ever Googled Todd Staples and how he co-authored a bogus BS law with the corrupt criminals in East Texas after a Jacksonville TX woman was murdered by her husband, a drug informant for the Cherokee County district attorney's office?

At least Staples' family will be voting for him.
Registered Republicans (unlike Democrats) are smart enough to cross party lines, esp. in the case of Hank Gilbert. The NRA endorses Gilbert, the TSRA endores Gilbert and thats good enough for me. We don't need what we've had lately.

Todd Staples unless you don't care about eminent domain and want the government to take your land when they feel like it.

have you folks ever googled Hank Gilbert and seen his past? Arrest Records? Lawsuits for non payments? now I understand he failed to deliver on a promise to the kids of whitehouse school about a golf scholarship? lack of integrity. may be a nice guy but we don't need another elected official who cant keep his word.
You mean that big bullshit load of half-truths and outright lies told by Todd Staples about Gilbert because Staples doesn't have anything concrete to offer on the issues pertaining to the job?

Yeah heard it before. Total BS.

All about it debunked here on Politfact

All I know is that most farmers and ranchers who are affected by legislation are supporting Todd Staples. I am not gonna bash his opponent. I am sure he is a very nice person. Just stating the facts that if people in Ag support Todd Staples then I would think he would be the best choice for the future of agriculture in TX.

I didn't say the NRA did not endorse Staples. I said the NRA did not OPPOSE Hank Gilbert.
Besideds, Gilbert doesn't have to fake some weird out-dated "southern" accent like Toddy Boy does in his commercials.
I didn't vote for Cllinton because he was a cheater and couldn't be trusted. I didn't vote for Staples because I don't trust anybody who pretends to talk with a Good Ol' Boy southern drawl; it means he's a liar. I lived in Central and East Texas my entire life and I never talked like I had a speech impediment.
Todd Staples is a fake farm boy.

Soon to be back on the farm if he doesn't start talking right. Even ol' Phil Gramm, bless his heart, was an intelligent conservative guy, but sounded like a straight up inbred retard. It turns voters off.
Gilbert is for reforming the broke TDA, checking gas pumps every 2 years and modernizing food standards (with all that Mexican produce coming across the border). I especially agree with reforming eminent domain that since has allowed big powerline companies to just take over private property. That's not conservative, and Hank is a conversative Democrat (yes they exist in Texas).

As the Staples supporters show, Todd is actually running for Governor and has only political ambitions that exceed his acumen.
