I trust that nobody is surprised to see the Chron endorse all eight ballot propositions. They're good on the merits, and they're utterly consistent with recent Chron editorializing. No surprise at all.
What is a surprise is that three days into Early Voting, there are still four unendorsed State Rep races - HDs 126 (Khan/Harless), 127 (Trautman/Crabb), 129 (Matula/Davis), and 150 (Nelson-Turnier/Riddle). I know that some incumbents have been skittish about making the trek to 801 Texas this fall, but what in the world is the holdup here? Let's get this done before Early Voting ends, okay?
I don't know about you, but I got three pieces of mail relating to the propositions yesterday, two in favor and one opposed. The latter, plus one of the former, were addressed to Tiffany, who apparently once voted in a Republican primary and thus gets all of the really interesting campaign mail here. The pro-prop G mailer to Tiffany was headlined "Why Proposition G Is Fiscally Conservative" and featured the faces and endorsements of 5 out of the 7 City Council Republicans - Berry, Lawrence, Clutterbuck, Khan, and Holm. I think that will be an effective piece of mail. What have you been getting in your mailbox?Posted by Charles Kuffner on October 25, 2006 to Election 2006 | TrackBack
