    Perry races (84th / 85th / 86th) ??
    The Dems have so little on the ticket I'm considering voting in the R primary just so I can help send Delwin Jones back to Austin. We need a sane (and he is; Delwin was a conservative Dem in the LBJ years) voice down there, and Charles Perry (who's famously beholden to some Houston lobbyists) ain't it.

    Landtroop's touting his votes to defund Planned Parenthood ("keeping your tax dollars from paying for abortion") and his opposition to the President.

    The GOP have a loathesome lot to go with their vicious platform!

    •  I voted in the R primary today (2+ / 0-)

      I've decided that supporting the least insane R in their primary is more productive than supporting the most progressive D in their primary. In most cases, the R is going to win in November, so until there is more parity, it's the R primary for me.

      Going through all the candidates websites is a scary proposition, but it is a pleasant surprise to find one with no mention of God or Agenda 21.

      I don't really have much of a clue on those races.  BOR probably would have a better idea.  I'm familiar with the state legislative races in my neck of the woods (I'm in Denton County) but don't know a whole lot about the individual races in the rest of the state.

      28, white male, TX-26 (current), TN-09 (born), TN-08 (where parents live now)
