Here is from a Bob Stein memo on a poll conducted for the Carol Alvarado for Texas Senate Campaign:

As the campaign awaits Governor Perry’s decision on setting a special election date for Texas Senate District 6, our recent survey of likely voters in the district has Rep. Alvarado dead even with former County Commissioner Sylvia Garcia in a 5-candidate field, and leading Garcia by 8 percentage points in a head-to-head matchup.

Promark Research conducted live telephone interviews with 310 likely voters in Senate District 6 from December 3-5.

The first ballot test included the three announced candidates – Alvarado, Garcia and RW Bray – as well as two possible additional candidates – Yolanda Navarro Flores and Dorothy Olmos.

If the election to fill the seat of the late State Senator Mario Gallegos were held today, for whom would you vote?

Carol Alvarado 27%

Sylvia Garcia 27%

R.W. Bray 15%

Yolanda Navarro-Flores 4%

Dorothy Olmos 2%

Don’t know 23%

Refused 3%

After reading positive biographies of both Alvarado and Garcia, the second ballot test was a head-to-head matchup between the two candidates.

If the election to fill the seat of the late State Senator Mario Gallegos were held today, and the candidates were Sylvia Garcia and Carol Alvarado for whom would you vote?

Alvarado 42%

Garcia 34%

Don’t know/Refused 16%

Refused 8%

This MLB Hall of Fame great was the NL MVP Award winner in 1970 and 1972, the NL Rookie of the Year in 1968, and made the NL All Star Team 14 times.  Name the great?

Today is Pearl Harbor Day.  I wonder who still remembers what happened 71 years ago today. 

65 years ago today Johnny Bench was born.  This Hall of Fame great won the NL MVP Award of course in 1970 and 1972.  Happy Birthday Johnny Bench!
