The Election going into Overtime
Posted by Mike O on March 4, 2010
Up to now, pretty much a draw. Keith Self (County Judge) and Fred Moses(GOP County Chair) won outright, Kathy Ward (County Commissioner) lost in a squeaker (less than a percent), Mabrie Jackson and Van Taylor in a runoff (TX Rep. 66), along with Jerry Hoagland and Cheryl Williams (County Commissioner).
The key race is Taylor-Jackson; Mabrie only pulled 41.5% and it’s inconceivable that she can pick up any Wayne Richard people after her nastiness. I fully expect the nastiness from that side to get only worse as they try to fracture or discredit the conservative coalition. We are ready for it, if it comes.
