Just a hunch, but I think Ron Paul will retire and run for President in 2012.

What better replacement, if that indeed happens, than Medina?

Ron Paul isnt' going anywhere. He's as spry as most 60 year olds, and has another decade in Congress at least. Medina should run again for Governor in 2014. Her willingness to stand up to the Feds and affinity for nullification and interposition make her better suited for the Governor's mansion anyway.

She should run for Senate.

I saw Medina was getting only like 14% in his district when I looked on elected night.

The only reason she would be especially strong there would be if Paul were backing her, and that doesn't mean she would automatically win. Plus she might be a carpet bagger if she just came there and ran all of a sudden.

Do you ever have anything positive and encouraging to say about Liberty candidates or are you just naturally a Debbie Downer wannabe? :rolleyes:

Wharton is in the 14th.

Ron Paul can keep his house seat AND run for President. But we can see Paul will have a very hard time winning the Texas Pres Primary in 2012. Right now, he'd only get 18% of Texas' vote. The rest going to RINOs like Palin.

The advantage for Paul is that there will be no substantial Democratic primary more than likely. If there is no major Dem primary, they can crossover and vote for Ron Paul.

Does Medina live in the 14th district? I'd rather see her run in her home district than move and become a "Carpet bagger." Or she could run for senate.

I like this idea.

Her home IS in the 14th District as far as I can tell. A congressional district is much smaller than the state of Texas, so her smaller amount of fundraising would be effective.

She is chair of a county GOP in the 14th district

You were certainly right about Paul's retirement & campaign, and I've heard rumblings that Medina will run for US Congress, but it can't be in Paul's district since her county (Wharton) was separated from Paul's district and placed in 27. However, she can still represent a big chunk of his old district that was split off, and a Medina seat in Congress is a victory no matter where her district lies. She MUST run!
