In a somewhat unanticipated move, former Court of Criminal Appeals Judge Morris Overstreet has announced his candidacy for Harris County District Attorney on the Democratic ticket.
He will be running against defense attorney Kim Ogg in the primary.
I only know Judge Overstreet in passing, but he's always been very nice to me. To be honest, I was unaware of all of his credentials. I didn't realize he was a former-prosecutor and I certainly didn't know he was formerly on the Court of Criminal Appeals. He has an extremely impressive resume and a very interesting background.
I was anticipating the primary season to be kind of quiet in 2016. Looks like I was wrong. Kim Ogg should be very concerned.
