    This same Perry from Houston gave the largest single donation ever seen in New Mexico politics, some half a million dollars to elect Susanna Martinez as Governor.  

    The purposes behind this are not very clear to people there, but the general strategy at work seems to be Republicans getting big donors to help push to elect GOPers wherever they can.  

    In Washington State, it would appear that the same thing is happening, except that so far I can't find anyone that has done any research into this.  People up here are probably behind the curve since the fight with right wing extremism has been going on for a lot longer in Texas.  

    hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
