    The 2010 mid-terms may be dominated by antipathy toward incumbents, and political upstarts may be knocking off long-time party favorites from Florida to Alaska, but that doesnít mean it isnít extremely difficult to mount a challenge to a well-established incumbent. Thatís what Dr. Donna Campbell is discovering as she takes on U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett in Congressional District 25. ďIt is daunting,Ē Campbell said. ďIím coming up against somebody that, heís an entrenched incumbent, and itís not an easy task.Ē As an eight-term congressman who preceded his time in the House with stints in the Texas Senate and the Texas...

    I received a phone call from former Marine Captain Kelly Hoag the other day, asking if I could help get the word out about a challenger for Pelosi's sock-puppet, Lloyd Doggett. Since I know Captain Hoag, having met her at the 9/12 March on DC and having had the honor of escorting her and 4 other wounded Marines during the weekend festivities, I was more than happy to lend a hand. George Morovich is mounting a campaign to unseat Doggett and give us one more voice of reason in the US House of Representatives. We need all the conservative voices...

    Of the many corruptions inherent in modern redistricting, none is more insidious than the destruction of communities of interest. Take the 25th Congressional district. It's one of three congressional districts in the greater Austin area. That's the one that reaches from Southeast Austin down to McAllen. The district is overwhelmingly Democratic, so while Republicans are fielding a well credentialed candidate in Rebecca Armendariz Klein, her odds of success in November are at best remote. In all likelihood, this district will choose its representation to Congress in the primary just weeks away. You might be forgiven if you didn't know that...

    McALLEN ó It didnít take long for the race for congressional District 25 to get ugly. With just 12 days left before early voting starts for the March primary, Democratic candidate Leticia Hinojosa has launched an inquiry into the voting record of U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, whom she faces in the March 9 election. Doggett was the only Texas Democrat to vote against the budget approved in February 2003 in the U.S. House of Representatives, Hinojosa said. The bill included $2 million in funding for Driscoll Childrenís Hospital in McAllen and $500,000 for the South Texas Community Collegeís Milagro...
