August 4, 2010

On Monday, August, 9, President Barack Obama will travel to Austin and Houston to raise money for candidates in the Democratic Party.

Texas Republicans aren’t exactly planning a nice reception to welcome the President.

A “Hands off  Texas” rally will be held at  the state capitol in Austin.

According to the release, the rally is designed to send a message that the “President and his party should keep their liberal policies out of  our state.”

Republicans are also promoting the idea that President Obama is coming to Texas to support democrats like  former Houston Mayor Bill White in his bid to unseat incumbent republican Governor Rick Perry.

White has said he will not attend the fundraiser because of  a prior committment.
