My endorsements for the Dem primary

I think most of these are easily knowable by my regular blogging, but just for the record, here are my endorsements for Democratic primary elections in Harris County. Only contested races are included here.

Senator - Barbara Radnofsky

Governor - Chris Bell

Lt. Governor - Ben Grant

Agriculture Commissioner - Hank Gilbert

U. S. Representative, District 7 - No preference, as I think both candidates are worthy of support. Read my interview with Jim Henley and with David Murff and make your decision:

Murff interview

I've asked both candidates for a statement to be printed here, as a final pitch for your vote. When I get them, I'll post them.

U. S. Representative, District 10 - Ted Ankrum

State Representative, District 140 - No recommendation. I honestly don't know enough about challenger John Reyes to evaluate him against Rep. Kevin Bailey. I don't much care for campaigns based on demographics, but I've no reason to doubt that Reyes is qualified. If anyone from either campaign wants to send me a statement about why they deserve voters' support, I'll be happy to print it.

State Representative, District 146 - Borris Miles

State Representative, District 147 - Rep. Garnet Coleman

Early voting starts today, and the primary itself is in two weeks. Whoever you support, get out there and vote!

Just curious, why are you supporting Miles?

It's no knock on Al Bennett, who is a good candidate and like Miles would be much better than Al Edwards. I think Miles has a broader base of experience, and I think that will serve him well in Austin.
