HISD Trustee District VIII candidate Judith Cruz made the Democrats for Education Reform (DFER) HOT LIST along with 14 other candidates throughout the country and she is in good company along with the likes of Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennett, New York’s Andrew Cuomo, and Delaware U.S. Senate candidate Chris Coons. 

Here is what DFER says:  DFER’s mission is to encourage a more productive dialogue within the Democratic Party on the need to fundamentally reform American public education. The Hot List candidates below are DFER’s top electoral priorities for fall 2010. Please give as generously as you can.  Here is the link:  http://www.actblue.com/page/dferhotlist.

Early Voting in Person through eight days yesterday in Harris County was at 214,778 as compared to 376,761 through eight days in 2008.

In 2008, Clear Lake was 3.3% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday, they were 5.2%.

In 2008, West Gray was 5.3% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 6.5%.

Of course, we’re still learning about voting early in person.  At first glance however, it looks like the GOP areas are bit more enthused here in Harris County – at least through the eighth day of Early Voting in Person.

The local Dem Party better have a kick-arse GOTV program for African American and Latino voters this week.  We will see!

The Yankees have played in 40 World Seriouses.  Who is number two on the list of playing in World Seriouses?

Guv Dude’s newest ad was the talk yesterday.  I don’t think Dude’s content with just winning.  I think he’s more interested in pummeling the Former H-Town Mayor all the way until 6:59 pm of November 2.  Dude also raised a ton of money.

Hillary Clinton is celebrating her 63rd BD today! Happy Birthday Madam Secretary!

Judith Cruz’s opponent put out a statement last night saying she does not condone sign stealing.  OK, but can we have our signs back – pretty please!

The Dodgers of course have played in 18 World Seriouses.
