    Unlike many GOP-held legislative seats, Democrats have fielded candidates in both of these seats.
    I was looking at the NBC 5 Dallas results and I was shocked at how many races had no D challenger whatsoever. How self perpetuating is that? If you're a D in TX why bother to vote when all your choice is one R guy?

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

    •  I'm a Dem in Texas. Local candidates (0+ / 0-)

      run themselves to death trying to beat the money-machine-backed @$$h0le$ (see Neugebauer, Randy, R -STUPID MEAN & GREEDY).

      I busted it trying to get Bill White elected in 2010. I mean, busted -- 40-60 hours weekly as a volunteer, the 2nd-best volunteer in the Lubbock office (we had everything west of 35 and north of 20, so, yeah, there was a buncha stuff for the one paid guy to do) -- and we were ahead the Sunday before the election, and we won the early voting as well as every major (and most of the nonmajor) papers in Texas' endorsements -- and what happened???

      L'il Ricky fuckin' grabbed gobs of money Monday and we got slammed Tuesday. That's what goddamned happened. It happened to our Senate candidate before that and it happened to our local candidates for Congress then and since, too, and what did the National Democratic Party do?

      Flip us the bird until they wanted our $$$ again.
