I have a Texas ping list but I have no idea who lives in this congressional district, for I'm not sure what areas it covers.

(John Kerry - The Shar Pei Candidate)
I was surprised to find out how my little lip near the Arboretum is part of District 10 and no Lamar Smith's district as it was last time. So I am trying to pay attention but I've been quite busy lately so I'm relying on others to do some of the homework.
As for the ads I've seen/heard running, Tashenburg and Streusand sing the tunes I most want sung. McCaul seems the most aggressive , best connected and my guess is he's also the Rove candidate which makes me a tad suspicious even though I've heard nothing bad.
Devine and Phillips are on the fringe. Teresa Doggett fought some windmill-tilting challenges against Lloyd Doggett so I admire her pluck for doing that but she's not the best of this admittedly solid field of candidates. I wish I could vote for about five of them. :)
The district itself should be called the "290 District" since HWY 290 seems to be what connects just about all these counties.
BTW, Gracey, I responded to your request for election judges and will be working a precinct up in Wells Branch for the primaries. I've done this before but it was like a decade ago.
I'll check out all these websites that some Freeper has wonderfully provided all the links for. I'll also have to find out who the Chronicle and Statesman endorse so I can make sure not to vote for their candidate.

(Some day I'll have a rock-hard body - once rigor mortis sets in.)
