Elected officials work for the People. Political candidates--and their staffs--should not be attacking grassroots activists. In the past few days, my friend, Tea Party leader Katrina Pierson, made an inappropriate comment about Dan Moran, a brave and honorable veteran who was gravely injured fighting for our Nation. She should not have made that comment, and she has rightly apologized. I have never said an ill word about Captain Moran, and I'm sorry that these comments were made. I very much respect Captain Moran's remarkable service to our country, and I respect his personal decision to support Mr. Dewhurst in this race. Following Katrina's tweet, the Dewhurst campaign staff has begun relentlessly attacking her. Katrina is a grassroots Tea Party activist. She is an unpaid volunteer and a single mom who has devoted thousands of hours to fighting to defend liberty and restore our Nation. If the Dewhurst Attack Machine must attack somebody, let them level their vitriol at me. I'm the candidate. The Dewhurst campaign should stop attacking the grassroots, stop attacking the Tea Party, and apologize to Katrina for targeting their never-ending attacks at her.
