Note: This entry is part of a series of recorded interviews with non-judicial candidates in contested Democratic primaries. I am also doing written Q&As with judicial candidates.
As I said in my intro for Dan Grant, the 10th Congressional District has come a long way since it was first redrawn for the 2004 elections, when it was perceived as so hopelessly Republican that no Democrat filed for the race. This year, after 2006 candidate Ted Ankrum held incumbent Rep. Mike McCaul to an unimpressive 55% showing, two strong yet strongly contrasting candidates have stepped up to take a crack at McCaul.
Larry Joe Doherty is an attorney and TV judge who brings a lot of experience and a pretty decent capacity for fundraising to the race. Like Grant, he had some very interesting things to say about his candidacy, the district, the issues, and the incumbent. You can hear it all here. Now that you've had a chance to hear them both, I'll be very interested to hear what you think about each of them.
