The editorial board interviewed Morris Meyer, the Democratic candidate for Congressional District 6, this afternoon. The incumbent, Republican Joe Barton, declined our invitation to be interviewed alongside Mr. Meyer.
If I were Mr. Barton, I'd be worried. Mr. Meyer is the real deal -- a smart, passionate, well-informed citizen-politician who appears to be riding the crest of constituent unhappiness with Smokey Joe's defense of industrial polluters at the expense of vulnerable children and elders. I'd enourage people in the heavily Republican district -- which includes Ellis County and Arlington -- to give Mr. Meyer a serious and open look.
