Country singer Pat Green performed for Texas House District 108 candidate Chart Westcott and his supporters last night at The Rustic, the Uptown restaurant of which Green is a co-owner. Green even brought Westcott up on stage and let him sing a few lines of “Wave on Wave.”

Fun fact: When Green released his first album, Dancehall Dreamer, Westcott was 10 years old.

    Is this race a popularity contest or one that is actually about the issues? Hard to tell when you have celebrities to endorse you rather than leaders in business or the community.

    This picture kind of reminds me of the one of Tim Rogers and Troy Aikman. Westcott looks truly in love with Pat Green. Huge bromance there.

    Well the jealous little nasty trolls are already at work this morning. Go look at Westcott’s Supporters list on his website – it is a who’s who of Business and the local Republican Party in Dallas. Westcott had over 1000 people last night, I don’t recall political event of that magnitude in this area in a long time. I doubt anybody in this race will come even close to doing something like that.

    I’d be interested to know how many of those on Westcott’s list are actually supporting him, as opposed to being coerced into supporting him by Daddy Westcott. Last time I checked, votes aren’t counted by supporter rolls on campaign websites

    Between his ability to get 1,000 Texans to show up for a free Pat Green concert, keep my mailbox full of glossy mailers, and having the prodigy-level intelligence needed to be named the General Counsel of a multi-million dollar company the summer before he actually went to law school (not to mention the intelligence to stealth-edit this from the web after it was pointed out previously); the only thing causing me to even hesitate a millisecond of jumping on board is Morgan’s nametag dominance. Race sure is heating up.

    @Tommy – Not being a troll but pointing out the grandstanding with celebrities for events rather than mentioning leaders in these areas. I believe Morgan Meyer has the backing of Kay Bailey Hutchinson and Ross Perot Jr. (a mix of both fields). I have yet to read/find big names backing Court Alley. I was wondering whether there were leaders, business or in politcs, that verbally back Westcott rather than just donate money.

    Having a wealth father is a bad thing? Sounds like you are jealous. Children of wealthy people do not choose their parents. So why would that be a negative? Look to his character and education and experience, not the bank account.

    Also, why can’t good friends of his father’s support his son? If I were running, I would want to include as many people as possible. It would be dumb not to attract as many supporters as possible.

    For instance, Morgan Meyer uses his wife’s “model” looks all the time (flyers, door hangers, etc.) Which anyone would use as well. I don’t blame the candidates when they use their families to prove to the voters that they are family oriented. Just the name of the game.

    @OK…, The Google makes it very easy to see who is supporting each candidate.

    @ Purdue Guy,

    No, having a wealthy parent is not a bad thing. And there is certainly nothing wrong with using anything at ones disposal, whether it be an attractive wife, friends of a powerful and wealthy Dad, etc, to win an election.
    But let’s not be naive. I don’t know anything about Chart’s character, I’m sure he’s a perfectly nice young man. But aside from his fathers financial backing and connections, if he were to enter this race as a 28 year old who has only ever worked for his father, he wouldn’t stand a chance. So while his fathers wealth is not a negative, it is in fact his only positive.
    Put another way, if his father was wealthy, but he was running as a 38 year old man, with children of his own in the schools, and a solid career apart from his dad, I would have no problem with his candidacy. THEN his family wealth wouldn’t matter.

    I intend to vote for the candidate who looks the least date-rapey. It’s going to be a very tough decision.
