Houston,Tx. Three Republican candidates for Texas Lt-Governor and Pauken for Governor pledge support for enforcement legislation. Pauken, Dewhurst, Patrick and Patterson all returned the surveys compiled by three Texas advocacy groups for immigration enforcement. "Pauken's opponent, Attorney General Greg Abbott, is MIA on the issue," says Mrs.Theiss, founder of Stop the Magnet, who issued the survey, "It seems he is waiting on DC to save him with an amnesty bill." 
 
Unlike his opponents, Patterson also admits his support for the guest-worker plank in the TX GOP platform developed and promoted by the restaurant and construction industries in Texas. 
 
In the case of a run-off, Stop the Magnet will reissue a specific questionnaire on whether the candidates support the Texas Solution.
