I Love Yew, Texas

We kinda suspect that Peterson is gonna claim that the Will after GOD’S is, indeed, his first name, but that Vote GOD’S Peterson just didn’t sound right.
I Love Yew, Texas

In the category of “Who’s Will Be Done,” we have this entry for the Only in Texas Championship.

William Peterson is a Republican running against incumbent Republican for the Texas 23rd congressional district. The Texas 23rd runs from just outside of El Paso to San Antonio to Eagle Pass, which makes it the same exact size as hell.

Peterson decided he needed a campaign committee. So, he got himself one. Click the little one to see the big one.

Since the FEC requires that the name of the candidate must appear in the name of the campaign committee, that can only mean one thing for Democrat Pete Gallego: he’s running not just against God, but GOD.

We kinda suspect that Peterson is gonna claim that the Will after GOD’S is, indeed, his first name, but that Vote GOD’S Peterson just didn’t sound right.

And the story just gets better. Peterson appeared on Marfa Public Radio last week, using the name Billy Hart, which makes me think that maybe “Vote God’s Hart” might have been a better way to go, but then I’m not a professional at this stuff.

Peterson/Hart told the radio …

Hart, who is a newcomer to Marfa, has lived in Alvin, Texas, near Houston, and in San Antonio. He’s worked on political campaigns in the past (Tom DeLay and Steve Stockman), but hasn’t before been a candidate himself.

There ya go.

He’s certainly learned how to dress from Stockman. Right up top is Mr. Hart/Peterson in his campaigning clothes.

Come on, you gotta admit that Texas is a great place to be in politics.
