Commentary is really disappointed that Joe Martinez (my client) didn’t make it into the runoff in the Democratic Primary Harris County Constable, Precinct 2 race.  Joe and his family and crew worked real hard.  I thought we would do better.  It was definitely the curve ball of the evening for me.  I’m really bummed out about this one.

Congrats to Traci Jensen (my client)!  Traci is now the Democratic Party nominee for State Board of Education, District 6.  We’ve got a very difficult race ahead but a tremendous candidate to run with.  Stay tuned!

Congrats to Precinct 6 Constable Victor Trevino (my client)!  23 years and five months of service to the community certainly paid off.

I don’t know what to say about the Harris County Democratic Party this morning.  We threw out an outstanding judge yesterday in Judge Kirkland.  We said no way Jose to Zack Fertitta for DA.  CD 22 is an embarrassment. 

In the Harris County Democratic Party Primary, more folks voted early than voted yesterday – by a hair or two.

Among active MLBers, name the player with the most career triples?

Well at least our Dem Party Chair is Lane Lewis – whew!

Let me say this and I also blame myself.  Dem campaigns need to do a better job of getting folks to the polls.  We may send out good mail and make good phone calls but we don’t do a good job of hauling voters to the polls.  Yesterday’s results here in Harris County are proof if you ask me and thank you for asking me. 

Former Cong. Ciro Rodriguez is definitely not going away – at least for the next 60 days.

The GOP will have a high profile runoff for U.S. Senate and Dems will have a low profile runoff.  Here is from an online article yesterday on the Dem race:

“The Democratic race is the political equivalent of a witness protection program. Once they’re nominated, no one knows who they are, and they’re never heard from again,” said political scientist Jerry Polinard of the University of Texas-Pan American.

Commentary is on his way to City Hall today to Free Hobby.  I’ll have more tomorrow.

Carl Crawford of course of the Red Sox leads active MLBers with 112 career triples.

The ‘Stros need to get back on track tonight as they took E-Day off yesterday.
