Texas Democratic Primary Is May 29—Kirkland And Fertitta Lack Credible Opponents In Two Harris County Races
The Texas Democratic primary will be held this month.
Primary Day is Tuesday, May 29. Early voting runs May 14-May 25.
The time by which you must register to vote to take part in the primary is already past.
Who may vote in this primary?
Any registered Texas voter may vote in the Democratic primary with the exception of those who have signed a ballot access petition for a Green or a Republican in 2012.
There are contested Democratic primaries in Harris County, and for all Texas on the upcoming ballot.
I have written about one of these contested primaries so far on the blog.
Another easy race to call is the primary for the Democratic nomination for Harris County District Attorney.
Lyold Oliver has run for office a number of times before in Harris County as a Republican. He has also voted in Republican primaries.
Zack Fertitta is the only credible candidate on the Democratic ballot for DA.
You might feel that the two-party system is broken and in the hands of the rich.
You might be torn over the fact that while there are clear differences in many respects between the two major parties, that it is also so both parties ignore the poor, and are both leading us to a police state in which the super-wealthy call all the shots.
I will be voting in the Democratic primary.
I guess that is what I should do. It’s what I have done before.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be endorsing candidates in other contested Democratic races.
Maybe I’ll even find a real liberal someplace along the way.
