Despite media pronouncements, polls, etc. this election has not been decided. While it is true that by party affiliation, the Democrats are outvoting Republicans in Harris County after the first week of early voting, the other side believes it can discourage you from voting.
Dr. Richard Murray, a Democratic leaning pollster reports that the African-American vote this year in Harris County will be up from the normal 18% to as high as 27%. It will go mostly Democratic, unfortunately.
TCR says it's time to get angry at the unprecedented negative campaigns against good conservatives. We can still win, but we need to get our voters out, all of them.
The trouble this year is there is no top of the ticket stopper as there has been in the past. The GOP leading vote getters Ed Emmett and Paul Bettencourt are buried on the long ballot. It's been predicted we could be down 50,000 votes at the end of early voting.
It's time to show the media, the bloggers and "the change" Democrats we don't have to change when things are working well.
If you don't get busy, don't complain to TCR when county government is driven into the ditch by the Democrats.
