Today is the debut of Texas Tuesdays, in which our coalition of bloggers raises awareness and hopefully a little money for some deserving Congressional and State House candidates. We lead off today with Richard Morrison, who is taking on Tom DeLay and has been buoyed by a recent poll that shows shallow support for the embattled Majority Leader. Everyone knows what last year's redistricting did to all of the Democratic incumbents, but CD22 is quite a bit different as well, with a sizeable chunk of Galveston County relocated there from Rep. Nick Lampson's old district. That's one reason why Lampson had been rumored to run against DeLay himself this time around, and it's one reason why DeLay's numbers may not be so hot right now - there are a lot of voters in CD22 now who are new to him.
You can help Richard's cause by donating to his campaign. As the Yellow Dog Blog suggests, please add $0.36 so he'll know where the donation came from. The YDB will have a guest post by Richard Morrison later today, so check back with them for that and for more info on what's happening today. Let's make Texas Tuesdays a success!Posted by Charles Kuffner on May 04, 2004 to Texas Tuesdays | TrackBack
