Senate Primary

101 games. 61 games left on the schedule. 64-37. 6 ½ games up. Where were we sitting after 101 games last season?

Yesterday’s hard copy of the Chron included a section commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. The Section included some front pages of the Chron 50 years ago. The Wednesday, July 16, 1969 front page included a story at the bottom on a $21.5 million Harris County Flood Bonds that was passed by the voters on Tuesday, July 15, 1969. Commentary wasn’t old enough to vote in that election.

State Senator Royce West from Dallas will get into the Democratic Primary for U.S. Senator. It looks like he will have a number of prominent Dallas area Democratic Party elected officials endorsing his candidacy. Commentary can’t tell yet how many prominent H-Town area Democratic Party elected officials will endorse and line-up behind H-Town City Council Member Amanda Edwards or former Congressman Chris Bell. Edwards and Bell have not rolled out their endorsements best I can tell. Ditto on MJ Hegar and prominent Central Texas area Democratic Party elected officials.

Sen. West has been a state senator for 26 years or so. He should have the Dallas area Democratic Party establishment behind him. CM Edwards has only been an elected official for 3 ½ years.

Your guess is as good as mine as to who will be our nominee. Commentary is waiting to see who Emily’s List will support.

This one is definitely going to be watched.

Last season, after 101 games we were 66-35 and 6 games up of course.

The A’s are in for three and what did you think about back to back to back dingers the other evening?
