The turnout for early voting in the primary has been heavy so far in predominantly Hispanic counties, thanks in large part to the Democratic race for governor. I'm excited about the prospects for the general elections. I still don't know if enthusiasm for Dan Morales or Tony Sanchez will produce extra votes for the other Democratic candidates (let alone whether it will be enough to win the governorship), but for the first time in awhile I feel like there's a reason to vote other than civic duty. Amazing how nice the thought that your vote might count can be.
In other news, the Chron has still not endorsed Tom DeLay. Time's running out, guys. The primary is Tuesday. I'll remember this nonendorsement in November.Posted by Charles Kuffner on March 08, 2002 to Election 2002
