Hate Campaign Against Harris County Democratic Chair Lane Lewis—Texas Democratic Primary Is Tuesday May, 29
Above you see hate literature circulated by a Keryl Douglas who is running for Harris County Democratic Chair against incumbent Lane Lewis.
I’m sorry even to mention this issue.
But it may not fully be out there that this is the type of campaign that this Ms. Douglas individual is running.
With the Democratic Primary to be held this Tuesday, May 29, people might be focusing on the some of the contested races for the first time.
You see here that Ms. Douglas is running a campaign in no way consistent with the best values of the Democratic Party. If in the unlikely event she were to win, how could she lead the party after having conducted such a campaign?
Here are three other Democratic primary races in which I feel compelled for various reasons to make an endorsement. I feel a liberal or progressive could be comfortable enough with these choices.
* I support Lissa Squiers in U.S. House district 7 to face incumbent Republican John Culberson. Ms. Squiers is energetic and progressive.
* I support Sean Hubbard to represent the Democratic Party in the race for the open U.S. Senate seat. Mr. Hubbard offers Texas Democrats the best hope for the future, and has run a reasonably progressive campaign within the context of two-party politics.
* I support incumbent Steven Kirkland in the 215th Harris County District Court primary. The only reason that well-qualified Judge Kirkland has an opponent is because he is gay. Judge Kirkland has done nothing to merit a primary challenge. With so many judicial seats held by Republicans, why did not Judge Krikland’s opponent seek to win one of those Republican seats instead?
