I do not blame Faircloth for not wanting to meet up with anyone to debate, as he kind of shot himself in the foot during the LMISD deal....Time for him to retire back to the insurance business....

"Fakecloth's" failure to communicate with the organizers of the Tea Party Event scheduled tonight at Marios on the Seawall, is just another example of his inability to "follow through" to Conservative Voters in a respectful manner. Fakecloth is the shining example of a full fledged RINO.

When did Wayne Faircloth become a RINO? In August 2, 2012,Texas right to life talked about him being against RINO"S, and one of the stars of the anti RINO"S that they talked about, was Wayne Faircloth .
"You, the Pro-Life majority in Texas, again advanced the cause by ousting many extremist, anti-Life candidates and incumbents! You won. The unborn in Texas won"
One of the winners was
State House of Representatives
Wayne Faircloth, District 23"
I did not find any Democrat actives in his past. I may have missed it.
Or is he a RINO, because he does not agree with you.

Fakecloth is a RINO because he worked hand in hand with Joe Straus. You remember Joe, the guy who gets all of his support from the Democrat Party? Fakecloth even asked Joe to help him do a fund raiser in Austin because he wasn't having much luck in SD#23, after the hurricane, while Mr. Middleton graciously gave a generous amount of his money to Galveston County to help victims of Harvey. Fakecloth just whined and complained.

Are you talking about  House Speaker, Straus. The one who works with both parties? I guess anyone that would do such a thing as work with other's, is a RINO or a DINO. Part of the problem we have now, is a person not willing to work with someone from the other side. We are on the brink of  a shut down in DC, because of this thinking . 
"Mr. Middleton graciously gave a generous amount of his money", as I have no idea how much he gave , I guess it was huge. But, can you be sure that Wayne Faircloth gave nothing? If the most  money make's the best politician , then just compare their bank accounts, to see who wins.
Is your referring to Faircloth as"Fakecloth's" a attempt at humor, or just a typo?
As I will not be voting for Faircloth or Middleton , the outcome is up to others, as who  is the GOP candidate. 

The following is about how "RINO" has become a thing of the past, as has “Me-too Republicans and Rockefeller Republicans,”. Another name will replace RINO.
"even Cruz has attracted the RINO label at times, particularly from defense hawks who argue his foreign policy veers into libertarian-leaning isolationism. This really gets us to the point: RINO has devolved into a buzzword that basically means “a politician I’m not supporting or a person who supports anyone other than the politician I’m supporting.”
In other words, RINO has entirely lost its meaning, and it’s time for us to get back to debating issues, instead of attaching a useless acronym to anyone with whom we don’t 100 percent agree"

If your job is at stake, making time to meet with your constituents should NOT be a problem. If it is, well,....then you're making your bed.

Having met and discussed issues with both I found Middelton preferable to Faircloth.
I got the impression Middelton was more focused on people wants than political party needs. A more liberal voter might have another preference.
