Bell's campaign kickoff

The official campaign kickoff for Chris Bell is tomorrow at his new campaign headquarters. The details:

WHO: Chris Bell and friends open Texas Senate campaign HQ
WHEN: Sunday, July 20th, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
WHERE: 4019 S. Braeswood Blvd @ Stella Link, Houston, TX, 77025
RSVP: (713) 978-7701 or chris@chrisbell.com

I've mentioned the matter of Bell getting adequate funding for this race. Here's one reason why that's important:

In the special election to replace state Sen. Kyle Janek, former judge Joan Huffman leads other contenders in fundraising thanks mostly to a $500,000 bank loan she secured and a $100,000 contribution from West Texas music impresario Herbert Graham.

Bell starts out with a big lead in name ID, but Huffman has taken a big step towards closing that gap. I hope he's got a lot of commitments lined up.
