As far as I’m concerned, H-Town will be A-OK since we have two good Dems in the runoff for mayor. Of course, like all high profile runoff races, I fully expect to see negative ads and negative mail from both sides.

Yesterday’s post E-Day coverage was about who gets what vote in the runoff. The talking heads were saying that Controller Annise Parker would get the Anglo liberal vote and Gene Locke would get the African American vote. Where do GOPers go? Where do Latinos go?

We know that both Parker and Locke will have to make serious overtures to GOP voters. If this race ends up being close, and if one of the campaigns invests in a serious Latino voter outreach effort and the other doesn’t, well then that could end up being the difference.  So far neither seemed posed to go directly after the Latino vote – no se puede!  Stay tuned!

H-Town CM Toni Lawrence said yesterday that she won’t be running against Harris County Commissioner Jerry Eversole in the 2010 GOP Primary which means she will be spending a lot of time helping the GOP candidate for her city council seat – drats!

By the time we end up voting on December 12, filing for the primaries will already be underway – interesting.
