Texans for Fiscal Responsibility is backing candidates in several Republican primary races. In Denton, the group is hoping to replace state Rep. Myra Crownover, R-Denton, with Read King and sent out a mailer to voters in Crownover's district criticizing her record.
Crownover response was to turn lemons into lemonade.
"Did you receive a yellow mail piece from Texans for Fiscal Responsibility this week?" Crownover wrote on Facebook yesterday. "Bring that S.I.L.L.Y. (Special Interest Lying Lobbyist Yellowcard) Card into Juniper House Coffee between now and Election Day to receive a free cup of coffee! Myra Crownover will donate $1 to the charity Serve Denton for every SILLY card collected."
