TYLER - Rep. Leo Berman met with citizens and media Friday morning to discuss what he says is a very non-conservative voting history of fellow Representative Chuck Hopson.
Hopson, who recently switched political parties from left to right has new telvision campaign ads that portray Hopson as a true conservative.
Berman says he couldn't sleep at night because he knew how Hopson had voted in the past on serious issues that affect Texas.
Hopson issued a statement saying Berman is quote "flat wrong" and that his multiple endorsements from Republicans should prove where he stands politically.
Berman says there is a national shift within the Republican party and it is starting within local races to push out liberals and elect true conservative people into office.
Berman says a conservative is one who believes in limited government, limited taxation, and traditional values.
