Branick

In his latest article on the Southeast Texas Political Review, Philip R. Klein comments on the uncontested race of Jeff Branick for Jefferson County Judge:
"Where in the h*** is Nick (Lampson). I heard he was going to run Jeff and at least give taxpayers a choice," said one long time democrat to the Review this past week.
If he or she really exists, this "long-time Democrat" apparently read about Lampson's race for Jefferson County Judge on the Southeast Texas Political Review. 

Here's an interesting time line. Klein first claimed that Nick Lampson would "consider a run" for Jefferson County Judge on Nov. 5, 2008:
The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned this afternoon that Congressman Nick Lampson who was defeated this week in the District 22 race in Sugarland [sic] will be moving back to Southeast Texas and will consider a run for Jefferson County Judge's office.
A month later, Philip claimed these people would run against Jeff Brannick on Dec. 8, 2008:
Nick Lampson, Bo Alfred and a dark horse blast from the past that has asked us not to use their name at this time. That name may be a GOPER.
Philip again claimed that Nick Lampson had announced his race for Jefferson County Judge on Jan. 26, 2009:
Nick Lampson came home from DC after getting the boot in Sugarland [sic]. And announces in the backrooms that he is going to run for Jefferson County Judge.
The next day, Philip claimed that "Team Lampson" exclusively confirmed Lampson's candidacy on Jan. 27,2009:
"[Brannick] can have his day in the media. We will have our day," says one source to the Review this afternoon.

"Nick will get his day also. And then we can debate the issues," said the source.
Readers should note that Klein has already predicted the outcome of the race for Jefferson County Judge. The winner: Commissioner Mark Domingue:
When the sheep go to the polls - they will remember Domingue more than they will remember Branick.
In his bottom line, Philip invented another new statistic:
Here is the facts - government has grown on the county level by well over 31% in the last seven years.
Here are the real facts: On Oct. 24, 2009, Philip claimed that the county government had grown by 46 percent in the past three years:
Mr. Branick - since Judge Walker has been in office - the budget has increased from 86 million to 126 million. During this time you were Judge Walkers architect in building up government.
And that's the real story behind Philip's latest story.

How about this fat boy-maybe Jeff doesn't have an opponent because everybody (who knows anything) likes and respects him. Maybe they think he would be a great County Judge. I guess what i'm saying is everybody feels totally opposite towards Jeff than they do you. And by the way-SHUT UP- you are embarrassing the Republican party.

Unless he receives Klein's endorsement, Jeff Branick can be assured of my vote.

JB is well worthy of the position he seek, PrK is a leech just looking for another host to suck off of.
