A Candidate for CD 10?Off the Kuff
reports that Ted Ankrum, a Harris County resident, is considering a run for Congressional District 10 and that he will be speaking at the Cy-Fair Area Democratic Club on July 7th. This is good news. CD 10 can be a competitive district, but a Democrat from the Harris or Brazos county end of the district will need to present the challenge. Last year, Travis County showed that we would support even a write-in Democrat. We'll support who ever runs. In order to win, though, the Democratic candidate has got to draw significant support from Harris County.
It still stuns me that any candidate for this district has to speak to both the Cy-Fair Area Democrats and the NXNW Democrats in Austin. What really pisses me off, though, is that the courts have decided that slicing and dicing local communities is not even worthy of consideration.
