The Houston Chronicle is reporting that we finally have an official date of May 29th for the primary election in Texas. I can't say that I've been following the debacle over re-districting all that closely over the past couple of months, but I do feel that I can speak authority in saying that it was all jacked up.
Additionally, the filing deadline for elected positions has been extended from now until March 9th.
I'm not a politician, but I've heard varying opinions over whether a late primary helps or hurts incumbents. I have no idea what the correct theory is, but I do know that now more than ever, it is time to get out the word on who to vote for.
As a side note: when we reach May, I will become even more insufferably persistent in making sure that you all got out there and voted for Mike Anderson, Kristin Guiney, Joe Vinas, and Renee Magee in their contested races.
Mark your calendars.
