On GOPers

Justin Verlander was runner-up for the AL Cy Young Award yesterday. How many other times has he been the runner-up?

State Rep. Carol Alvarado filed for the #TXSD6 Special yesterday.

Commentary certainly has had takes on Harris County Judge Emmett and his campaign. I don’t think he will run again for a GOP position. He kind of burned bridges with the GOP when he said he would not vote for Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.

It was good to see this from a Channel 2 story, a class act from both:

We had a busy day meeting with the heads of some of our Harris County departments and with my predecessor, Judge Emmett. I’m grateful to Judge Emmett for serving our community and for working with me in this transition process.

“There are a lot of projects already underway. He’s done great work. I appreciate him and his staff’s willingness to talk to us, and it’s exciting and we’re all working for the betterment of our community. But there are huge challenges but also huge opportunities. It’s great,” Hidalgo said.

Hidalgo said the two of them actually have common goals.

“We both love Harris County and had a great conversation about what’s happening and what the opportunities are, and I’m so thrilled to have sat down with him,” Hidalgo said.


Along the same lines, new #TXCD2 member-elect Dan Crenshaw certainly isn’t speaking from the GOP talking points. His appearance on “SNL” and most recently on “Today” have been refreshing. Let’s hope he stays that course.

It would be nice if all talking points from both sides of the aisle were ditched.

Justin Verlander was the AL Cy Young Award runner-up in 2012 and 2016 of course.

And he handled not winning the award this season with a lot of class.
