I don't know who either of those candidates are. But both of them issued press releases that showed up on Google News 6 hours ago.

I can't get through to the first one, but the second one says it's an endorsement of Paul's Liberty PAC. I don't see either name listed there yet. I wonder if there are more to come.

As we now know from the good doctor himself, these "endorsements" should be taken with a huge grain of salt.

I would still be careful. We must use our heads when voting. I recently discovered that Ron Paul endorsed Lamar Smith in Texas(bailout voting neocon) because he made a deal with the Republican Party of Texas. Now, he tells the people that he was pretty much forced to because he only has a certain degree of independence if he wants to keep his job as US Congressman, at least in the Republican Party.

Any endorsement from anyone should be taken with a huge grain of salt. Endorsements should not be a substitute for personal research

Robert Lowry is a Ron Paul libertarian non-interventionist constitutional type of guy. This isn't a favor to the GOP establishment - this is a Ron Paul guy.

Huckabee endorsed Huelskamp as well.

This can't be good.

The dude doesn't even talk about foreign policy on his issues page:

I think whats going on here people is that with all the Tea Party shit and anti-obama crap going on.. that people within the GOP are turning to Ron Paul for his influence.. I think this is a good thing.. This moves RP up into the party and gives him credibility. Ron knows we're a herd of cats sometimes, but the other GOP members are trying to tap into his magic if you will.

I trust Dr. Paul enough to figure whatever deal he made is the right thing for him to do for furthering the cause.

Let's not throw out the babies with the bathwater. Ron said that his deal was with Texas Incumbents. If he recommends a non-incumbent, it is probably worth taking a deeper look.

Rob Lowry has been a friend of mine for about 5 years. We served together on the board of directors of a local organization called South Texas Charities. He's a Ron Paul guy all the way. He was supporter of our local Ron Paul group during the campaign and was a delegate with us at the state convention. If there was anybody affiliated with the Ron Paul campaign in San Antonio that should get elected to office it's Rob. You can put him alongside Debra Medina.

He has a shot at the Republican spot, but our district (CD 23) is a very strong Democrat district so unseating the incumbent Ciro Rodriguez is going to be tough. However, as a doctor and surgeon he has spent a lot of time volunteering in the Democratic end of the district and has a lot of connections. He has also been very active in the Republican Party here locally in the past and has a lot of connections there as well. He has busted out in the last week and has a whole bunch of 4' x 8' signs out on the freeways right now. No one else does, at least in the San Antonio portion of the district. It's a BIG district that runs from the west side of San Antonio about 550 miles to the New Mexico border just short of El Paso. We both live in the top part of the "C" that it forms on the west side of San Antonio. MAP (http://www.thegreenpapers.com/maps/111th.cgi?TXH23) He is definitely worth supporting for anyone who is a fan of Ron Paul.

His two opponents for the Republican spot are Quico Canseco, a party parrot who is an attorney in Laredo, and Will Hurd, a young ex-CIA Operations Officer who is basically unemployed and looking for a job who is also a party parrot. They are both very nice guys, but are what I like to refer to as Useful Idiots. Quico has run every time for the last 6 years and has never gotten the Republican spot. In a recent Candidates Forum hosted by the Republican Liberty Caucus of Bexar County Rob got very favorable response from the crowd. In a nutshell it was the Ron Paul guy vs. two neocons.

Two years ago Bexar County Commissioner Lyle Larson got the Republican spot. This time he was not going to run, but State Rep. Frank Corte (R) announced he was stepping down and Lyle decided to jump in at the last minute and run for that spot which he will probably get and it's a strong Republican district so he will probably get the office. He's not quite a Ron Paul guy, but he's pretty good and is a staunch opponent of toll roads. He is an ally of Terri Hall who has Texas TURF, the anti-toll party she started here in San Antonio which is THE organization fighting the "NAFTA Superhighway". I think having him in the TX House will be a better place for him than the US Congress because his main difference of position with Ron Paul is foreign policy and his opinion on that is not as important there.
