Interview with Ty McDonald

The discussion of the special elections going on this week and culminating on January 6 has been dominated by Bexar County, home of two of the three races, including the Senate race, but the HD17 election is important in its own right. It’s centered in a growing part of the state and it has a decent shot at being an R versus D race in the runoff. There are two Ds running in this race, with one of them, Ty McDonald, having the better chance to make it to overtime. McDonald, whom I profiled here, is a teacher and former Bastrop ISD school board member, whose husband Ronnie, a former Bastrop County Judge, was a candidate for CD27 in 2012 (my interview with him is here). She had given thought to running for HD17 in November before making a run for County Judge herself. We covered a lot of ground in the interview:

As of this publication, I am still trying to work out an arrangement to interview Rep. Jose Menendez for his campaign in SD26. I hope to have this for Friday, or at worst for Monday.
