“Man oh man!!! I have been waiting and waiting to see the name Audrie Lawton back on a ballot in Harris County, Texas for a long time. So, for all of you who might not know, I’ve been very impressed with this very experienced litigator from the very first day I laid my eyes on her. She's smart, community minded, and has a real heart for the people in my opinion. Did I mention how smart she was? Oh, and she’s also tough – but fair. She's tough and smart! Now that's a good combination -- right? And if you ask me, she’s going to be one of the top Democratic challengers attempting to take down a sitting Democratic judge in the upcoming 2022 Democratic Party Primary. Now, she’s not from my stable of current clients – but I like Audrie's chances a lot. Now, for full transparency, Judge George Barnstone was one of my biggest Democratic supporters back in the 2018 Midterm Elections, but I guess somewhere along the way I pissed him off, so much so that he wouldn’t even listen to me, when I told him to prepare to be challenged in the upcoming 2022 Democratic Party Primaries. Listen up!!! I tried to tell Judge Barnstone, Judge Scot “dolli” Dollinger, and every other sitting Democratic judge who would listen to prepare themselves for a primary challenger in the upcoming 2022 Democratic Party Primary. But nobody seems to be listening to me!!! Can you hear me now? Can you? Huh? Can you? Anyways, back to Judge George Barnstone, the presiding judge for Harris County Civil Court at Law No. 1 -- If you ask me, attorney Audrie Lawton is going to clean his clock. I would be very surprised if this rising Democratic star does not beat Judge Barnstone by double-digit percentage points in the 2022 Democratic Party Primary, race for Harris County Civil Court at Law No. 1. And as for Judge Scot “dolli” Dollinger, I believe that he’s going to face the same fate if he does not adjust his strategy! Look, Tamika “Tami” Craft proved her metal back in the 2020 Presidential Election when she won the Democratic nomination by beating back a stellar group of Democrats in a contested primary race running across ten counties. Now, it took a runoff for her to eventually gain the nomination, but she proved that she could rally her troops to come back out for her. So, while I like Judge Scot “dolli” Dollinger, I have a hard time seeing him, or Judge Barnstone, beating their challengers on Tuesday, March 1, 2022, in the Democratic Party Primary.”
"If you ask me, Judge George Barnstone, the presiding judge for Harris County Civil Court at Law No.1 is going to have a very difficult time making it out of the 2022 Democratic Party Primary. Why? Well, for starters he has absolutely no concept of what's really going on around him. And secondly, I think that he's listening to the wrong people. And thirdly, I think he truly believes in his own mind that holding the Harris County Civil Court at Law No.1 bench is his privilege or something. Now, don't get me wrong, I really like a few of the things Judge Barnstone has done from the bench. But some of his actions are not in accordance with the law and appear to be efforts where he's trying to legislate from the bench."

"A lot of what you guys are going to see me talk about between now and November 2022 will be centered around voter integrity. However, I am going to also spend a lot of time exposing the dirty politicians and doing my very best to let you guys know who the clean politicians are during this pivotal moment in the history of our great nation. I truly believe that Audrie Lawton-Evans is going to run a nice clean race in her effort to unseat Judge George Barnstone in the 2022 Democratic Party Primary for the Harris County Civil Court at Law No.1 bench. So, keep your eyes open for Audrie Lawton- Evans a rising Democratic star in the upcoming 2022 Democratic Party Primary in Harris County, Texas."
