The race for TDP chair enters the home stretch

I confess, I haven't been following the race for Texas Democratic Party chair very closely. I don't really have a strong preference among the three leading contenders. All I really want is for us to emerge from this contest with a minimum of blood being spilled. This is about as favorable an electoral climate that Democrats have seen in Texas since, what, 1990? Let's please do our best to not screw it up with infighting and hard feelings.

So far, at least, most of the bad stuff has happened on mailing lists and other generally not-in-front-of-the-public venues. I'll be lighting candles for the next week or so in hopes of keeping it that way.

If you want to know more about who's running, check out Phillip Martin's interviews with Boyd Richie and Glen Maxey. If there's an interview with Charlie Urbina-Jones in the works, I'll link to it when it's up. As I say, I don't really have a strong preference at this point, but there's good information out there for you if you want to make a reasoned choice. Check it out.

Charles, we'll be planning a conference call for Tuesday night I think with Maxey if you want to tune in. Details coming by email in the next day or two.
