Lucio and Meyer

Catching up on some more State House news...Via Tejano Insider, Eddie Lucio III, son of State Sen. Eddie Lucio, will seek the HD38 seat being vacated by the retiring Rep. Jim Solis. Solis ran unopposed in 2004 after winning by a 68-32 margin in 2002 - the district was 63-37 Democratic in 2002, with Carole Keeton Rylander/Strayhorn getting 46.9% to lead all Republican contenders; only Susan Combs at 40.5% joined her in breaking the 40% barrier. In short, this seat will be won in the Democratic primary.

Elsewhere, I've mentioned before that former Congressional candidate Morris Meyer was looking at Rep. Bill Zedler's HD96. I've since received an email which suggests he's officially in this race. I'll see if I can get a confirmation on that.

Morris and I had a meeting the other night to discuss my candidacy and his. He is definitely in the race.

Meyer has a snowball's chance of knocking off Zedler in 96. He's dreaming.
