Rowlett Republican PAC founder and president Sharon Russell has just announced her intentions to try to unseat State Sen. Bob Deuell in the Republican Senate District 2 primary election March 7.
It won’t be easy.
Sen. Deuell, a family physician in Greenville, was first sworn in January, 2003, and has received numerous awards and recognition for his service since.
Also the chairman of the Rowlett Economical & Development Sub-comittee, Russell is currently a Dallas County Republican party precinct chair and former delegate to district and state GOP conventions.
According to her new website, Russell, mother of four and grandmother of four, thinks a more conservative Senator is needed to represent District 2.
“The need for conservative representatives in the Texas Senate cannot be understated,” wrote Russell. “I bring my reputation for reliable conservative actions and high moral character as the Republican of choice in this election.”
(Doesn’t she mean… “overstated?”)
A former small business owner, she claims she is dedicated to family values and straight talk, plus a tough defender of personal property rights.
“The current economic climate demands judicious spending of every public dollar,” said Russell. “When spending is without consideration for future consequences, the entire State suffers.”
“I stand for family values, I stand for the Constitution, and I will stand for your rights as we fight to take our country back,” she said.
She also said she is never afraid to make her Christian heritage and personal convictions known.
“Russell lives by those principles that guided Texas to greatness in the past, and will so in the future with the right people in office,” she writes on her website.
