It's time for a little Q&A!
Q: Why did Giovanni Capriglione campaign for DeWayne Burns and Dan Flynn against their conservative challengers?
A: Because Gio isn’t fighting the Austin swamp; Gio is growing the Austin swamp!
We at NE Tarrant Tea Party are leading a Texas-wide effort to elect as many conservative challengers to liberal incumbents in the State House as possible. Our Shark Tank fundraisers have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from patriots all over the state for districts all over the state. Why? Because we are a coordinated, statewide movement intent on filling the House with conservative representation. So, what a surprise when we saw Giovanni Capliglione actively campaigning against two men who would have joined the Texas Freedom Caucus!
Philip Eby fought and narrowly lost a race to establishment lacky DeWayne Burns. Burns, of course, ran as a conservative and quickly changed his tune when he got to Austin. Philip Eby looked forward to joining conservatives and fighting for Texas taxpayers. He was heavily endorsed by conservative groups across the state including the NETTP PAC.
Here’s Gio Capriglione and Craig Goldman in House District 58 campaigning for DeWayne Burns.
DeWayne Burns has a D+ average. Can’t we do better than this?
Fiscal Responsibility Index Score: 66%
Young Conservatives of Texas Score: 70%
Concerned Women of America: 64%
More troubling than his support for Burns is Gio helping Dan Flynn defeat Bryan Slaton. Bryan lost to Dan by less than 500 votes. If Slaton had won, he also would have joined the Texas Freedom Caucus to fight against the Austin establishment. Slaton is running against Flynn again and is also heavily endorsed by conservative organizations across Texas including NETTP PAC.
Dan Flynn- Fiscal Responsibility Index Score: 49%
Young Conservatives of Texas Score: 54%
Concerned Women of America: 57%
The fact that Gio would campaign for an incumbent like Flynn is a sign that he has completely abandoned our conservative cause to reform the Austin swamp. Flynn is part of the cabal in Austin that vigorously fights against conservative reforms, and he was voted one of the worst lawmakers in Texas by the leading taxpayer watchdog group.

Giovanni Capriglione wants you to re-elect him for a fourth term. Before you do that, ask yourself... what has Gio done for you in District 98? What has he done for Texas? Our district has some of the highest property taxes in the nation, and they keep getting higher. Why did he vote against the tax relief that Governor Abbott proposed? Republicans completely control the Texas House. They could have gotten anything they wanted. Don't let them lie to you. So, why have your property taxes gone sky high under their watch? Look at your property tax bill from six years ago when Gio was elected and compare it to your last tax bill. What do you see?
Why do illegal aliens still get in-state tuition in Texas universities? The Texas GOP has complained about it for years and yet the House has done nothing. Why haven't the magnets which lure illegal aliens here in the first place been turned off? What meaningful immigration reforms beyond a sanctuary city bill have been passed? The officials who these run sanctuary cities feel free to openly flout the law. Why? Because they know that the corrupt special interests who run the Austin swamp will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO STOP THEM.
The Austin swamp's main priority is protecting a small elite of crony capitalists and making sure their pet projects are well-funded with our tax money. Gio has excelled in this. Just look, for example, at his votes for the Texas Enterprise Fund which gave $40million to Sematech (who then left Texas anyway). Don't forget Gio and his ilk worked overtime to sabotage Governor Abbott's reforms. The small clique that runs the Texas House has learned how to give conservative voters just the bare minimum to stave off a full-on taxpayer revolt. Stop accepting crumbs from the Establishment and vote these people out!
Gio's voting record has tanked with every genuine watchdog group that tracks the Texas House. Have you ever heard of a politician who started down that path and then improved? We haven't either. Does this feel like a guy who is fighting the swamp....who's fighting to save Texas...who is fighting like hell to keep it from turning blue? He could have, but he isn't. Gio isn't fighting the swamp; Gio is the swamp.
