Interview with Rep. Ellen Cohen

One of my favorite results from the 2006 election was seeing now-State Rep. Ellen Cohen knock off Martha Wong in HD134. Wong had been a loyal foot soldier to Tom Craddick and was a terrible fit for the district. Cohen's resounding victory in an otherwise still red district highlighted her strengths as a candidate, which carried over into her time in Austin, where she was a factor in getting several big pieces of legislation passed. I asked her about that and more in this interview, as always in MP3 format. Rep Cohen does have an opponent this fall, though he's been almost completely invisible so far. You can't take anything for granted, though, so Cohen is running as hard as she did in 2006. I for one feel pretty good about her chances.
