Another Tuesday, another fine candidate to check out on Texas Tuesdays. Today's feature is Mark Strama, running against first-term incumbent Jack Stick in Austin's SD 50. This is a race that has been targeted by the state Democratic Party, and it should be a competitive one - Stick won with 55% of the vote in 2002, but both John Sharp and Kirk Watson carried the district, and Ron Kirk garnered 48%. I see this is being kind of a bellwether race - if the Dems win here, they're probably having a good day around the state, while if they lose here, things are probably going pretty well for the GOP.
Anyway, Strama is an exciting candidate with a background in both politics and the Internet. Check out the intro to Mark and the look at his campaign academy, and check back later for an interview with him. If you like what you see, please consider helping him out.Posted by Charles Kuffner on July 06, 2004 to Texas Tuesdays | TrackBack
