TX-21 Saturday Roundup

In the interest of keeping content coming on this previously neglected little blog I offer these tidbits.

Kuff muses on his Chron blog, Kuff's World about the Texas congressional races this November, and what it would in terms of Bush's cratering approvals to fuel Democratic congressional gains.

On both Burnt Orange Report and Texas Kos there's been some vigorous discussion about scheduling the TDP Convention. We had some success in getting the schedule revised to allow the candidates for statewide offices (other than Chris Bell and Barbara Radnofsky, who were confirmed in prominent time slots) to speak to the convention-and communicated to the candidates who have other things they need to accomplish during the convention. Shocking, I know.

Though it's slightly out of this blog's mission, please allow me to present, in addition to the above, the Texas Democratic Party's nominees for statewide offices:

Lieutenant Governor
Maria Luisa Alvarado

David Van Os

Democrats must fight everywhere. These people, and their families, have answered that call. They have put their lives on hold and their finances on the line to wage an uphill battle for the people of Texas. They deserve the respect and support of the Democratic Party.

Back to TX-21 news, I hope to be on a blogger conference call with Team Courage tomorrow night, so expect a report after that.
