|Bosque County Chairman Janet Jackson|
|Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Ft. Worth|
Janet Jackson is also Bosque County Republican Chairman, and is known for a militant stance in unseating more traditional Republicans in the ranks of her own party.
A community organizer, she has led efforts to fill Precinct Chairmanships in counties throughout Senate Republican Executive Committee 22.
She teaches neoconservative activists how to register people to vote, conduct poll watching on election days, hold precinct conventions, and become elected Republican Party delegates.
She has also been in open combat with other GOP county chairmen, most notably Joe B. Hinton, a retired Mobil/Exxon Vice President who headed McLennan County's GOP organization.
Mrs.Jackson engaged in fisticuffs with a former Falls County Republican chairman in which both she and he were cited by Marlin police for simple misdemeanor assault. (click)
In an e-mail distributed Wednesday afternoon, she told a select list of addressees, "This is the Senator (Ms. Davis) that we need to unseat in 2014. She represents Senate District10, just to the north of our Senate District 22. Remember this action when we ask you to join us for block walks and phone duty to unseat her in the upcoming election."
The Democratic senator held out in a filibuster for 11 hours before Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst suspended the floor action, calling for a vote on an anti-abortion bill that would have severely curtailed abortions for women of low and moderate income. At that point, an angry mob of people roared their disapproval, delaying the vote until past midnight, when the Special Session ended.
