Campaign themes


2010 Campaign Slogan:"A common sense conservative who will stand up for you in Austin!"


Excerpt:"Because of the nationwide recession, Texas will be facing a multi-billion dollar budget shortfall when the State Legislature meets next year. Liberals aggravate those problems by spending more and raising taxes. When I served as the Bee County Judge, I solved those problems by cutting the budget and holding the line on spending. Texas taxpayers and their families have to tighten their belts to make ends meet, and we should expect no less from our legislators in Austin."

Small Business

Excerpt:"As an attorney, businessman and rancher, I know the importance of small business and agriculture to our state’s economy. I will work hard to cut red-tape and stop government regulation from strangling our small business owners. And I will fight any efforts to allow a state income tax or to tax small businesses by increasing the margins tax."[1]

NRA rating

Aliseda has an A-rating with the NRA's Texas affilitate, the Texas State Rifle Association[2].


Aliseda was endorsed by Texas Right to Life Political Action Committee[3].
