If you voted today, this wouldn’t have helped you anyways. For the rest of us, it is sometimes useful to compare the various endorsements around Harris County. So, here you go.
It’s harder than you think to do this. If you see an error, let me know, if you think a group should be added, let me know.
One thing is clear and I’ll try to expound on that is that there is far less money being raised and spent by the traditional groups on the R side in Harris County.
Obviously I’ve focused on the party in the past, so I suppose it’s worth a comment on the HCRP Chair race. I don’t see a lot of activity compared to past elections, thus I must conclude that current Chair Paul Simpson will hold on. Although I still don’t know why he wants to. Go figure.
The HCRP Executive Committee seems less focused on winning in November than slapping Paul upside the head for his choice of consultants. Weird but hey, it is what it is. As for the resolution that the EC passed forcing Paul to put a disclaimer on their website that the HCRP was not affiliated with that particular consultant, the disclaimer has not been put on the website. I asked the HCRP Comms Director about that and the response was “We are working on a statement from the Chairman to the precinct chairs addressing the resolution. Once it is finalized I can get that to you”.
Not a good look for a resolution that was passed two weeks ago. Just sayin’.
In the immortal words of Holly Hansen, a writer at The Texan:
Entering phase 1 of “silly season” 2020, (Primary Elections,) I’d like to encourage folks to stop and consider what you’re about to say. Are you making a persuasive argument? Or just lashing out?
I’d suggest name calling (or saying things like “you’re just too stupid to understand,”) or using photo-shopped images or mean caricatures, are just not very persuasive.
More later. Out.
