SHOCK POLL: Hypothetical Head-to-Head for TX Governor Shows Actor Matthew McConaughey Beating Beto 2-to-1

A survey released by the University of Texas and the Dallas Morning News shows actor Matthew McConaughey is in a hypothetical lead for Texas governor. In a match-up against current Republican Governor Greg Abbott, 43 percent of respondents say they would back McConaughey, 35 percent would support Abbott, and 22 percent would choose someone else.

In another hypothetical race against Democrat Beto O’Rourke, McConaughey’s chances were even higher with 49 percent saying they would support McConaughey to 27 percent in favor of O’Rourke.

O’Rourke’s attempts in Texas politics have not fared well in recent years. He lost the Senate bid to Ted Cruz in 2018, then “flopped” as a Democratic presidential candidate in 2020. Now Beto is attempting to oust Governor Abbott.

McConaughey has not made a decision on a political run. Last month he told The New York Times has was still “measuring” a bid and would only seriously consider running if he believed he could be “useful” to Texas’ electorate.

When assessing all three candidates together, “In a three-way race, however, the survey found O’Rourke and McConaughey would split the anti-Abbott vote and allow the governor to win reelection,” writes Mediaite.

In total, “The poll has Abbott at 37, McConaughey at 27, and O’Rourke at 26. O’Rourke, in that three-way battle, garnered 74 percent of the Democratic vote. But if McConaughey proves to be a viable candidate, it seems plausible that he could gain more Democratic support — should he end up as the most likely opponent to defeat Abbott.”

    Let’s see how that changes when he actually has to articulate a policy and answer specific questions. I suspect pretty boy’s poll numbers will fall like a rock

    What has happened is that more conservative candidates have come out against Abbott, one in particular (Don Huffines) has gotten a lot of support. Democrats are hoping that Abbott (or Huffines) is weakened by the primary to the point they might have a chance. There is ZERO chance of that actually happening. The “red wave” is going to be a 100ft tsunami in Texas.

GOP Demands Answers: Jan 6 Committee, FBI Won’t Release Info on Suspected Fed Informant Ray Epps

The mystery of Ray Epps continues to grow. Multiple videos of Epps have surfaced showing him repeatedly demanding pro-Trump rioters should enter the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Epps’ involvement has led many to speculate that he was an FBI plant who incited the January 6th insurrection. One video of Epps shows Trump supporters shouting “no” to his suggestion of entering the Capitol and even begin to shout that he is a “fed.”

Texas Representative Ronny Jackson tweeted Thursday, “Who’s Ray Epps? Why did he mysteriously disappear from the FBI wanted list? Why can’t we see what he said to the Cheney/Pelosi Witch Hunt committee? Was the FBI involved in any way in planning 1/6? Why won’t they answer ANY of these questions? Something is NOT right here!”

A lot of questions need to be answered in deed. Jackson’s tweet comes after Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned Jill Sanborn, the executive assistant director of the FBI’s national security branch, during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday.

Cruz got zero answers from Sanborn’s testimony, only causing further curiosity about Epps; just as Jackson suggests. The New York Post transcribed some of the testimony, as follows:

“A lot of Americans are concerned that the federal government deliberately encouraged illegal and violent conduct on Jan . 6 ,” Cruz (R-Texas) told Jill Sanborn, the executive assistant director of the FBI’s national security branch during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

“My question to you – – and this is not an ordinary law enforcement question, this is a question of public accountability — did federal agents or those in service of federal agent s actively encourage violent and criminal conduct on Jan. 6 ?” he asked.

 Sanborn responded by saying she couldn’t disclose “sources and methods.”

“Ms. Sanborn, was Ray Epps a fed?” asked Cruz after stating that Epps was captured on video the night of Jan. 5, 2021 rousing people to “get into the Capitol.”

“Sir, I cannot answer that question,” replied Sanborn, who added that she was “aware of the individual,” but didn’t have “specific background” on him.

Cruz went on and stated that on Jan. 6, Epps was seen talking to rioters moments before they ripped down police barricades outside the Capitol.

 Sanborn responded that she couldn’t answer whether Epps urged them to knock down the barricades.

Cruz then noted that Epps initially appeared on a poster issued by the FBI seeking information about people connected to criminal activity on Jan. 6, but was absent from another FBI “seeking information” poster distributed July 1.

Cruz then notes,  “magically, Mr. Epps disappeared from the public posting” and “according to public records, Mr. Epps has not been charged with anything. No one’s explained why a person videoed urging people to go to the Capitol, a person whose conduct was so suspect the crowd believed he was a fed, would magically disappear from the list of people the FBI was looking at.”

Even more curious, the January 6th Committee investigating the riot has simply said claims that Epps was an informant were “unsupported.” In a statement on Twitter, the panel said “Epps informed us that he was not employed by, working with, or acting at the direction of any law enforcement agency on January 5th of 6th or at any time, & that he has never been an informant for the FBI or any other law enforcement agency.”

Yet the Committee will not release interview transcripts. Yet the Committee expects the American people to just accept their vague and useless tweet? No way.

John Blischak is the attorney for Epps, and told the Epoch Times that his client is not working with, or for the FBI. But…Blischak himself is a former FBI agent. Something smells fishy.
