TexBlog PAC endorses Robert Miklos

The TexBlog PAC is pleased to announce its fifth endorsed candidate, Robert Miklos, running for HD101 in Dallas County. Here's our press release:

TexBlog PAC today announced its endorsement of Robert Miklos in Texas House District 101, a Dallas County district that includes Mesquite, Sunnyvale, and Balch Springs.

"We are especially excited about Robert's campaign," said Matt Glazer, Director of TexBlog PAC. "This is a district that is primed to turn blue. The district is realigning politically, as evidenced by the bloody GOP primary and the exasperation of Republican's long-standing ties to special interests. Meanwhile, Robert is going to knock on 10,000 doors before election day. The people of the district know who is on their side, and they will vote for Miklos on Election Day," Glazer said.

Robert Miklos, an attorney, was raised in Dallas, graduated from Skyline High School, and earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Texas at Austin and a law degree from the University of Houston Law School. After four years working as a prosecutor in Houston where he took violent criminals and sex offenders off the streets, Miklos and his wife Kathy moved back home to Dallas County. In his ten years as an attorney for the City of Dallas, he rose through the ranks and served as Chief Prosecutor for the city for six years, during which time he earned a reputation as a tough prosecutor and an effective leader.

With the PAC's endorsement comes a check for $5,000 to Miklos' campaign.

"It is our hope that, by showing that the Texas Netroots sees the value in Robert's campaign, others across Texas will open their wallets and support a fine candidate in a very winnable district," Glazer said.

I did an interview with Miklos during the state Dem convention (MP3 file is here). You can support Miklos and the rest of our candidate slate if you are so inclined on ActBlue.
