Huffines Releases First Campaign Video

Highland Park resident Don Huffines has released a video in which he portrays state Sen. John Carona as a 20-year-old computer and “a career politican.” Huffines used the latter label for Carona, a Preston Hollow resident who was first elected to the Legislature in 1990, when I interviewed him a few weeks ago. Carona’s response at the time:

“That, of course, is a rather ridiculous statement for anybody to make, because it is well known that the Texas Legislature is a citizen legislature. Perhaps he doesn’t understand that we only meet every other year, for 140 days.”

    Mr. Huffines will make a great state senator. Nice to see him running.

    Well, this explains the recent spate of panic-y looking mail from Carona. Based on Carona’s spotty voting record, I would be predisposed to vote against him anyway and Huffhines will serve the area better. So, seems like a win-win. Carona’s quote is priceless!

    Don Huffines is a Ron Paul Wacko. He gave him thousands of dollars for his presidential campaign. These libertarians are pro-drug and anti-death penalty. They are polluting the Republican Party. Plus on personal level Don Huffines is a jerk. Better to stick with what we know.

    Carona’s massive conflicts of interest in legislating have been well documented. Look forward to hearing from others running.
