TX Woman gets over 3000 signatures for Texas Presidential Debate (w/ Mitt Romney & Ron Paul?)

Update: Petition now has over 5000 signatures!

This past weekend at my County Convention in Hardin County, TX, I was pleasantly surprised when a young woman from my county,
Chelsea Willis, approached me and said she had a petition with over 3000 signatures on it. The petition was to try to persuade Mitt Romney to come to a Texas Republican Presidential Debate. The petition is titled "Potential Nominees, attend the GOP Debate (Houston, TX on May 24th, 2012)"

In recent years, Texas has had little say in the Republican Presidential Race. The Texas GOP tried to put Texas on the map by getting together a debate on May 24th in Houston, TX. Mitt Romney was the only candidate to snub this Texas debate.

Even with Santorum suspending his campaign (dropping out of the race), Chelsea knew that the race was not over and many states still have not voted, so on April 14th Chelsea sprang into action by starting an online petition in support of this Texas debate with Gingrich, Paul and Romney. The petition specifically urges Mitt Romney to attend.

Since the start of the petition, Gingrich has also announced he suspending his campaign (dropping out)

Although it now seems unlikely that any other Presidential candidate other than Mitt Romney will get the Republican Nomination, it is encouraging to see that even regular voters in little Texas counties are standing up and trying to make a difference. Getting over 3000 signatures is pretty impressive for this rather low-key controversy.

Even with just Ron Paul and Mitt Romney left in the race, the point is to show Romney that Texas does not like being ignored, so I encourage everyone to go to this link and sign the petition http://www.change.org/petitions/mitt-romney-debate-ron-paul-houston-tx-on-may-24th-2012

Who knows, if she gets enough signatures maybe Romney will actually take notice. I hear that a major news outlet would be interested in a debate with just Ron Paul and Mitt Romney. That would be interesting!

Below is a personal letter from Chelsea Willis regarding her petition:

I created a petition titled "Potential Nominees, attend the GOP Debate (Houston, TX on May 24th, 2012)" because I care deeply about who becomes the GOP nominee.

I understand that the SREC has received a commitment from a major television network to televise the debate, and that the remaining GOP nominees, except Romney, have pledged to be at the debate. In addition, it is my understanding that the SREC passed a resolution that intensely urged the uncommitted nominee to attend the Texas GOP Presidential Debate. In response, I have created an online petition to encourage Romney to debate Gingrich and Paul. The ultimate purpose of the petition is to gather constituent support for the debate, and I could really use your assistance in getting out the word. A substantial number of signatures will convince the uncommitted nominee that attending the debate is in the best interest of his campaign.

It will just take a minute!

Once you are done, please ask your friends to sign the petition as well. Grassroots movements succeed because people like you are willing to spread the word!

Sincerely,
Chelsea Willis

  1. I think it is waste of time for this debate. And since Ron Paul delegates took over Oklahoma conventions, I don't think I would want to hear Ron Paul anymore. He cannot beat Obama.

    1. LOL. Ron Paul is the only conservative in the race. He is in fact the only one who could beat Obama.

      In my opinion, to support anyone who supports NDAA indefinite detention, TSA, Patriot, is un-American. Whose side are you really on?

    2. Rasmussen Polls say otherwise bud.
      He's consistently beating Obama while Mitt is consistently loosing or tying with Obama.

      He appeals to real conservatives, yanks some democratic votes over to the GOP and more Independents that any other candidate in the GOP. If anyone can beat Obama it's Paul. Accepting Mitt as the nominee is just handing Obama the presidency.

  2. Hearing where a candidate stands, and their voting record and actions are never a waste of time.

    The more I hear about Ron Paul, the better he looks.

    I want my AMERICA back, I want our freedoms back.

  6. A debate between Romney and Obama will be like an echo chamber. They are two sides of the same coin. Tyranny and a government owned by the elite, private shareholders, of the Federal Reserve banking, monopoly, front company.

They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lenders."

  7. Ron Paul polls BETTER against Obama then Romney.
    Ron Paul has a GRASSROOTS political machine never before seen in the world. Romney's "grassroots" is made up of a few dozen bankers and hedge fund managers. Ron Paul has excited thousands, Romney not so much. Ron Paul has a conservative budget cutting platform, Romney wants to increase spending on WWII era ships! Ron Paul has the young, the minorities, and the independents, Romney has the white hairs. Paul can still win due to his delegate strategy that has worked in the early states, Romney has trouble getting people to show up, even in his home state! We, the GOP, will look back at Obama's next inauguration and wish we had got on the Paul train with the young and minorities! We, the GOP will fade into oblivion without the Paul supporters!

  8. Please stop spreading this list of so-called FED owners. I don't say that is complete nonsense, but there is no "Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy" and there never was one - sure, this name sounds just to perfect among the others, right?
