First Report

Well here is the first one we know of. From the Chron:

Republican lieutenant governor nominee Dan Patrick said Monday that his campaign has raised $1 million since beating incumbent David Dewhurst in a May 27 runoff.

The MLB All Star Game is being played tonight. Name the Hall of Fame great with the most stolen bases in All Star Game history?

All I am going to say about those that are demonizing the children at the border is have you talked to them? Ask them why they are leaving their country. Ask them why they are coming over here before you shoot out your press releases.

AG Eric Holder is right. Check this from CNN.com:

Holder on Sunday told ABC’s “This Week” that “there’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me (and) directed at the President. … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people.”

Holder said he also stood by comments from a 2009 speech in which he said America is a “nation of cowards” on race and sees a crop of new voter identification laws, many of them passed by GOP-controlled state legislatures, as a way to disenfranchise minority voters.

I will be at The Yard tonight for the following:

Thank you for RSVP’ing for the Season Ticket Holder All-Star Game Watch Party presented by Champion Energy Services today, July 15th!
