Dwayne Stovall, a business owner and lifelong Republican, has announced that he will seek the Republican nomination for the office of United States Senator. In 2014, with zero name recognition and only $70,000 to fund his campaign, Stovall finished third in a field of eight, garnering nearly 11 percent of Republican Primary voters.
In his announcement, Stovall asked, “Outside of the few authorities delegated to the federal government by the States, who should manage Texas? Should it be we Texans, among ourselves, according to our morals and traditions, or should it be a few generally non-Texans, a thousand miles to our east, that we will never know and never influence? This is a question that must be answered.”
Stovall believes Cornyn’s standing among conservatives is on the decline in Texas while the State’s establishment leadership appears to be doubling down on Cornyn in order to scare off a primary challenger.
“That won’t work this time. Texans are tired of career politicians who just go along to get along. Cornyn has routinely disappointed Texans for almost two decades. He is not a fighter. He is a compromiser. He embraces climate change, red flag laws, gun control, and no one will forget his vote to allow Obamacare’s funding to go forward, or his many votes to allow the government to illegally collect our phone calls, emails, and texts. There is no way John Cornyn should go unchallenged through the primary. Conservative Texans deserve better. Much better,” Stovall said.
The first responsibility of a U.S. Senator is to protect the best interests of his State, Stovall believes, which in this case means protecting Texas from the unconstitutional overreaches of the federal government.
“As Senator, I will put Texas first by never voting to grow the government and by working to return power to the States. It’s time to start putting Texas first and let Texans manage Texas,” he said.
Stovall is a fifth generation Texan with more than 20 years of business experience in highway and bridge construction as well as oil field services. He lives in Liberty County with his wife of 28 years and the youngest of their three children.
