Election: US House: Texas: CD10: Summary

Posted on 03/08/2004 5:09:07 AM PST by DrewsDad

The Texas primaries are set for Tuesday, 9 March 2004. Congressional District 10(East Austin to West side of Houston along 290) has 8 candidates running with no democrat opposition in the general election.

Candidate web-sites are linked in alphabetical order. Chances of a run-off (to be held Saturday 3 April) are high, since it is unlikely anyone will get 50%+1 of the votes; we will deal with any potential run-offs later.(Borrowing from PetroniDE's intro)

John Devine

Pat Elliott

John Kelley

Mike McCaul

Dave Phillips

Ben Streusand

Brad Tashenberg

Teresa Doggett Taylor

Candidate Responses to the FreeRepublic.com Questionnaire are listed in the order that they were received:

John Devine
Dave Phillips
Pat Elliott
Michael McCaul

Another Questionnaire can be found at:
Free Market Questionnaire

TOPICS: Politics/Elections; US: Texas
KEYWORDS: cd10; election; electionushouse; texas; ushouse
We have some good candidates to choose from for this race. Please add your comments and try to avoid turning this thread into one big political commercial. If you choose to add something based on speculation, please qualify your statements accordingly.

Thanks again to all who helped gather this information together. This is a close race with passions running high. Let's keep things from turning northeast(some say south, I say NE).

May the best candidate win!

I noticed that Teresa Doggett Taylor's responses on the FreeMarket questionnaire that I disagreed with earlier have been updated, so take another look if you haven't lately. They look much better to me now.

Struesand seems to be doing the most advertising of the bunch, from what I've seen and heard.

He's sent me the most mail and called me the most times. I think he's over $2.5 million now. I am wondering with those resources, why he didn't return our candidate questionnaire. Maybe his answer to the government childcare question on the FreeMarket questionnaire had something to do with it.

Other than that, he looks pretty solid.

I'm not within that District, so I'll have no input on the winner. But, as an outsider, I have to figure that he's a lock to at least get into a runoff, probably against McCaul.

The rest of the candidates have been mostly invisible.

My guess is it's between Streusand, McCaul, and Devine. Phillips campaign workers said that he was up there too. If hometown favoritism plays much of a factor then that might help McCaul being alone(except for Doggett Taylor) in Austin.

I am hoping for Devine who's views appear(to me) more Constitutionally based and has a proven record of standing for them, but won't be heartborken if one of the other good candidates takes it.

I drive past a big Devine billboard every day during my commute, but other than that I've seen nothing. Of course, I'm not on the list to get direct mail advertising in that District.

If I had the opportunity to vote in that election, I'd choose Devine also, although Struesand wouldn't be a bad choice, either. The Austin politicos have endorsed McCaul largely and I'm sure he'll get the lion's share of the primary vote there.

I haven't paid much attention to his positions, although he has advertised in the Houston media. All in all, it's a pack of conservatives running, all of whom are better than the large majority of current Congressmen from around the country. With no Rat opponent in November, we can't lose.

LOL ... Was that a "re-test" or did they fix a miscommunication?

I don't know, but will give her the benefit of the doubt until I hear otherwise. I already voted anyway.

Are you campaigning at your polling place tomorrow?

"Are you campaigning at your polling place tomorrow?"

Yeah, before work and in the afternoon ... but right now I am at the computer trying to figure out what resolutions I want to put forth.
