Spotlight on HD 132: Interview with Michael Schofield

As long as I've been of age to vote, I took my choices seriously and did the research that was needed to help select the best and most qualified candidate. Pffffft! If you believe that, then I've got some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell. I hate to admit it, but it hasn't been until recently that I have been doing any sort of research or homework on candidates.

Since I've entered a more mature and responsible phase of my life, ahem, I do actually think about who would be the best candidate for the job, and if you've been reading any of my posts recently, you'll know that I'm referring to one race in particular: the race for Texas House District 132.

Spotlight on HD 132 Runoff: Interview With Ann Hodge-Part 2

As you know, Republican State Representative Bill Callegari resigned his seat at the close of the last legislative session; you know the one with a record three special sessions?

Poll Shows Ryan Sitton in Strong Position to Win Railroad Commissioner Runoff

Railroad Commissioner candidate Ryan Sitton's campaign recently released poll numbers showing him in a strong position to win the May 27th runoff election. The poll conducted in April 2014 by Baselice & Associates showed that both Sitton and Christian are relatively unknown and most voters are undecided, but when voters hear information about both candidates, Ryan Sitton surges ahead.
