The Republican primary election race to fill retiring State Representative House District 8 Byron Cook's seat is headed to run-off following the release of the State's final vote totals Tuesday night.

Neither front-runner Cody Harris with 8,864 votes (44.95 percent) or Thomas McNutt with 7,786 votes (39.46 percent) claimed more than 50 percent of the total vote, which will require them to face-off in a May 22 run-off election.

 Texas Independence Day

Texas Flag waving
March 2, 1836
On this day in 1836, our Texas founding fathers declared its independence from an oppressive government, and created the Republic of Texas. We must forever remember the spirit of the brave Texans who fought for liberty and freedom. We must never take for granted the sacrifice that those brave men and women made, so Texas could prosper.

During the Texas Revolution, a convention of American Texans meets at Washington-on-the-Brazos and declares its independence from Mexico. The delegates chose David Burnet as provisional President and confirmed Sam Houston as the Commander In Chief of all Texan forces. The Texans also adopted a constitution. Meanwhile, in San Antonio, Mexican General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna's siege of the Alamo continued, and the fort's 185 or so American defenders waited for the final Mexican assault.

 President's Day

George Washington
February 22, 1732
George Washington was born in Virginia on February 11, 1731, according to the then-used Julian calendar. In 1752, however, Britain and all its colonies adopted the Gregorian calendar which moved Washington's birthday a year and 11 days to February 22, 1732.

Americans celebrated Washington's Birthday long before Congress declared it a federal holiday. The centennial of his birth prompted festivities nationally and Congress established a Joint Committee to arrange for the occasion.

 Navarro County Speaks Out at FRA Public Forum

Texas High Speed Rail Viaducr
By Patrick Sparks - Corsicana Daily Sun
Boondoggle, boondoggle, boondoggle. That word was thrown around numerous times concerning the high speed rail. The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) hosted a public forum January 29 at the Corsicana Middle School, inviting the residents of Navarro County to give their comments and concerns for its Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS), concerning Texas Central Railroad's high speed rail project.

Attendees were given three minutes each to stand at a podium and speak their questions or give comment on the DEIS and the bullet train being constructed to connect Dallas and Houston. Among the citizens of Navarro County were also multiple Congressional and Texas House candidates running for office.

 Bronze For Brent Thompson: Statue in the Works for Slain DART Officer

DART Officer Brent Thompson
By Deanna Kirk - Corsicana Daily Sun
Heroes have been memorialized and immortalized in bronze for generations, dating back to wars early in our nation's history.

So it is only fitting that a bronze is being sculpted in memory of DART Officer Brent Thompson, who was killed in the line of duty in Dallas the night of July 7, 2016. Thompson saved the lives of fellow officers and peaceful protesters that night from a crazed gunman, but gave his own life in the process.

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan -- A Better Way 2016
A Better Way To Grow Our Economy
A Confident America is the best place in the world to live, work, build things, start a business, and raise a family.

Regulations are important. They help protect our health, safety, and well-being, and provide firm rules for us to live by. But taken beyond their initial purpose -- and to an extreme -- regulations can stifle innovation and infringe upon liberty.

The current system is costly and closed to innovation. In 2015, regulations cost us $1.89 trillion in lost productivity and growth. Put another way, if our regulatory system were a country, it would have the world's 9th largest economy, behind India. Indeed, red tape is an empire in its own right.

There are no limits in the amount of regulatory costs Washington can impose each year. Few old regulations are taken off the books. And where we see new sources of innovation -- from energy to the internet itself -- regulators see new chances for control. Even Congress is complicit, having delegated broad authority to unelected bureaucrats. Regulators can regulate first and never have to answer questions later, while you have little recourse or say in the process. All this adds up to a system that favors established interests -- big government, big labor, and big business -- over hardworking Americans and consumers.

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan -- A Better Way 2016
A Better Way To Uphold Our Constitution
In a Confident America, the government upholds the Constitution and works for the people, not the other way around.

Just as the size of government has grown, so has its arrogance. Washington spends money it isn't authorized to spend. It takes power it isn't given. It ignores laws it is required to execute. It doesn't listen, and it certainly doesn't care to learn.

The Founders insisted on a separation of powers to protect our constitutional liberties. But over time, especially in recent decades, the executive branch has collected more power for itself, enabled by a judiciary that defers to the bureaucracy and a Congress that has yielded some its most fundamental duties. James Madison warned that the Constitution is "a mere parchment barrier" unless each branch asserts its powers to keep ultimately comes at the expense of the people, who rightly feel detached from -- distrustful of -- their government.

A Better Way For Tax Reform
We send too much money to Washington, D.C. and too many jobs overseas. In a Confident America, the IRS and the tax code work for people, not against us.

We need a new tax code. It needs to be fair and simle for everyone. It should be so simple that most Americans can do their taxes on a form as simple as a postcard.

Our tax code should be built for growth. It should be built for growth. It should help make the United States the best place in the world to hire and invest. And if we're going to have a better tax code, we need a better IRS, one that puts the taxpayers first.

This blueprint offers a better way to dramatic reform -- without increasing the deficit. It does so by promoting growth -- of American jobs, wages, and ultimately the entire economy.

A Better Way To Fight Poverty
If the American Dream isn't true for everyone, it isn't true for anyone. All of us should have the chance to make the most of our lives no matter where we start.

Our country is all about striving, but too many of our people are stuck. Over the years, Washington has made many promises, created many programs, and spent many trillions to fight poverty. Yet today in America, if you are raised poor, you are just as likely to stay poor as you were 50 years ago. The key word here is "stay."

Our welfare system is rigged to replace work, not encourage work. Washington measures success by how many programs it creates, not by how many people it helps. The system traps families in a cycle of poverty, shuffling them from program to program instead of helping them break free altogether.

A Better Way To Keep Us Safe And Free
A Confident America keeps its people safe, and keeps the peace in a dangerous world.

Our nation's foreign policy is failing at nearly every turn. From refusing to enforce its red line in Syria, to legitimizing Iran's nuclear enrichment program, to its failed reset with Russia, to cavalierly dismissing the retreat while the most dangerous terrorist organization in history emerged. the Obama administration has experimented with a new foreign policy concept -- leading from behind -- that can now be declared an unambiguous failure.

Our enemies no longer fear us and our allies no longer trust us. Terrorists and rogue regimes are stepping up to fill the void, leading to a humanitarian catastrophe in Syria that is causing the worst refugee crisis in World War II.

A Better Way To Fix Health Care
In a Confident America, everyone has access to quality, affordable health care.

Obamacare is making health care worse by the day. It drives up premiums and deductible costs for individuals, families, and businesses. It forces people off the plans they like. It fuels waste, fraud, and abuse. And it cannot be fixed. Its knot of regulations, taxes, and mandates cannot be untangled.

Obamacare must be fully repealed so we can start over and take a new approach.
