We are about to find out who Peter Brown is backing in the Mayor’s race. From the press release he sent out last night at 10:30:

MEDIA ADVISORY: PETER BROWN ANNOUNCES ENDORSEMENT IN MAYORAL RUNOFF

Peter Brown will host a press conference, joined by family, friends and supporters, announcing his endorsement in the mayoral runoff.

WHAT: Peter Brown makes an official endorsement in the mayoral runoff
WHEN: Tuesday, November 10th at 1:30 PM
WHERE: Steps of City Hall, 901 Bagby St., facing the reflection pool

UPDATE: KHOU’s Alex Sanz says on Twitter “Reports are circulating that Houston councilman Peter Brown will endorse former opponent Annise Parker in the race for Houston mayor.”

UPDATE: Mary Benton says Brown is endorsing Parker, too.
