Democrats Are Hopeful

…The real drama on Texas primary day is happening on the left this time. Democrats consider this year a pivotal marker in their efforts to turn Texas purple or even blue, and yet they can’t decide on the best way forward.

If there is to be a Texas version of a Democratic wave this November (defined by picking up one to as many as five congressional seats and 10 state House seats), Tuesday could bring early signs of it. For the first time in at least 25 years, Texas Democrats have put up a candidate in every one of the 36 congressional seats.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
