Reminiscent of first military engagement of the Texas Revolution at Battle Gonzales in 1935 – help her campaign load cannon Oct 2nd!
(background so you’ll know the history behind this day!)
Battle of Gonzales
(October 2, 1835)
The volunteer spirit that has now characterized the military forces of Texas for more than one hundred fifty years was first called upon during this crisis. It was against a determined group of men that Santa Anna sent his dictator-controlled army. It was at Gonzales that the motto–“Come and Take It“–was born. >>> Read more here.
Debra Medina Launches
WE TEXANS Campaign on CNN
Campaign Manager Penny Langford Freeman announces the launch of a 60-second TV spot entitled “We Texans” that will air on CNN today, Thursday, October 1, 2009. The spot will first air in Austin and move to numerous cities all across Texas.
“Fellow Texans, tonight we take our campaign to the airwaves. We Texans will start airing TV spots in various cities across Texas,” says Mrs. Langford Freeman. “Austin, our state’s capital, will be first because we want to send a clear message to Governor Perry and Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, ‘We Texans mean business.’ The days of big spending, elitist bureaucrats are numbered and we are taking our message to the people.”
“Watch CNN tonight and see how Debra Medina, an average Texan like you and me, will start moving our state back to freedom and personal responsibility where ‘We Texans’ make the decisions for our families and our communities,” she added.
Debra Medina for
Texas Governor 2010
Born in Beeville and raised on a South Texas farm, Debra Medina is a wife and mother, a registered nurse, a businesswoman, a rancher and a fighter.
Debra has always drawn strength from the courage of her convictions. She first got involved in politics in the early 1990s, when she saw that local leaders were not honoring the pro-life principles that guide her beliefs. Now chairing the Republican Party of Wharton County, she took the Republican Party of Texas to court in 2008 over violations in how the state convention was run.
Standing up to Goliaths is pretty much what Debra does.
She homeschooled both her children long before homeschooling had the kind of support and visibility it has today. She graduated from San Antonio’s Baptist Memorial Hospital System School of Nursing in 1984, and later earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Management from the evangelical Christian Le Tourneau University. In 2002, she founded her own business, Prudentia Inc., which specializes in improving medical billing procedures.
Through it all, Debra has waged and won battles that were not always popular – battles that often demanded uncompromising personal sacrifice. But this kind of strength is no surprise. After all, one of her ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War. Another lost his life in the fall of 1842 in the Dawson Massacre near San Antonio, fighting to preserve Texas independence.
Today, Debra Medina continues this legacy. She stands solidly on the principles of limited government, a sound economy, individual liberty and the inviolable importance of family, community and faith.
