OK, I know it's all Tom DeLay all the time, but there are other races, too. One is in CD10, a district that would not exist in its current configuration were it not for DeLay. There's two Dems in the runoff for the party's nomination, and the Chron writes about it here.
[Ted] Ankrum is a retired Navy captain who served four tours in Vietnam during his 15 years of active duty and another 15 years in the reserves. His experience also includes working for NASA as deputy director and later serving with that same title for the Environmental Protection Agency. He was a diplomat in Australia during the Clinton administration and worked for U.S. Sen. John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign.
Growing up in an Air Force family, Ankrum lived in several Texas towns, then graduated from a high school in Europe. His own military career took him across the country and the world before he retired to Texas in 2002.
Ankrum sets himself apart from Foreman by putting energy independence on his list of priorities. He wants the United States to achieve it within the next 10 years. He also hopes to increase the minimum wage.
[Paul] Foreman is a writer who also has worked as a police officer and a teacher.
He has written several novels, including a story of Texan prisons called Sugarland , and has penned books of poetry. He also has worked as an editor and was one of the founders of the Texas Writers League.
A self-described centrist, Foreman said he's on the side of the people.
UPDATE: Vince has a nice Q&A with Ankrum that's worth your time to read.Posted by Charles Kuffner on April 04, 2006 to Election 2006 | TrackBack
