Texas Primary

Wendy Davis is the Democratic candidate for governor.

The Fort Worth state senator formally clinched her party’s nomination Tuesday night. She headlines a Democratic ticket that in November will seek the party’s first statewide victory since 1994, which was also Richards’ last year in office.

She’ll be running against Greg Abbott, and the GOP has already shown that they’ll make it a knock-down/drag-out bar brawl.

George P. Bush, son of former Florida governor Jeb Bush, is on the ballot as Land Commissioner.  The technical term is “legacy hire.”

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) completely cratered in his attempt to unseat Sen. John Cornyn in the primary.  Mr. Stockman gave up his seat to run, so he’s not only out of the Senate race, he’s out of a job.  Aww.

Oh, and Kinky Friedman is running as Agriculture Commissioner on a platform that includes legalizing marijuana.  Whoa, dude!

2 barks and woofs on “Texas Primary

  1. Well, I voted on 2/19 at the library, however, Russ decided to vote yesterday. Now, Russ had a doctor appointment and stopped to vote on the way. Guess what, he had his license, voting card and glasses went to the school showed the documents and they wouldn’t let him vote. He came home fuming, they only let Republicans vote. They told him he had to vote at another school. So he couldn’t find the place and I called downtown to voter registration. They told me the place where to vote and she told me it had been publicized about the change; we really were not informed of the move. So, I asked her about the fall election and the runoff election and she said that a decision had not been made yet about where to vote. Can you imagine that, a decision has not been made.
