Today I spent the afternoon at the Capitol will colleagues, delivering invitations to every single office for a legislative event hosted by Texas Beer Freedom.

On no occasion was I dismissed as a dismantler of a perfect system. No one accused me of trying to sell beer in dry counties or to children. No one even told me they didn’t have time to talk. The reaction at every single office was one of excitement to be hearing from Texas brewers.

Granted, these were staffers I was talking to and their excitement doesn’t directly translate to votes – but they are the front line for their respective members.

Today, I’m more encouraged than ever.

Cheers.
