Just a few tidbits to tide you over...
Frank Madla gets a school named after him just before he's in a contested primary. With a little help from his friends, of course. Matt has the story.

In the other contested Democratic primary for a State House seat being abandoned by a Republican, both Jason Earle and Valinda Bolton picked up endorsements recently. Candidate Eric Beverly will get his turn in the BOR interview rotation shortly - Earle's is here and Bolton's is here.
"Over the last year Texas families have struggled because of the sluggish economy. Now's the time for change; now is the time to put families ahead of corporations," said Glenn Melancon, Democratic candidate for Congress.
"While Washington politicians measure the State of the Union by looking at corporate profits, they turn their backs on working families. Farmers and Ranchers have asked for drought relief, yet Congress refuses to act. College students can't afford to pay their tuition, yet Congress cuts Federal Financial Aid and state's raise tuition. Commuters face rising gas prices, yet Congress rewards oil companies with tax giveaways. Something is radically wrong with the direction of our country."
Glenn Melancon is running for Congress to demand change and to fight for Texas families. The State of the Union will be truly healthy when Congress promotes and protects well-paying American jobs, ensures health-care access for all Americans, breaks America's addiction to foreign oil and creates a winning foreign policy.
Glenn Melancon of Sherman is the Democratic candidate in Texas' 4th Congressional District. The district includes Bowie, Camp, Cass, Collin, Delta, Fannin, Franklin, Grayson, Hopkins, Hunt, Lamar, Morris, Rains, Red River, Rockwall and Titus counties.
