You're not having deja vu - it IS, indeed, time to VOTE once again. Why do we have so darn many elections this year? That's part of our discussion today, along with an analysis of the offices and issues in question.
A quick guide to our major endorsements:
Lieutenant Governor (index to 13:32): Mike Collier (whom we talked to recently in our April 9 minisode)
Attorney General (16:38): Rochelle Garza (our guest for our February 10th minisode)
Land Commissioner (20:00): Jay Kleberg (listen to Episode 54, from April 22)
State Comptroller (24:05): Janet Dudding (a proud proponent of marijuana legalization!)
U.S. House - Texas District 28 (28.33): Jessica Cisneros (over highly problematic longtime incumbent Henry Cuellar, whose very presence in a runoff speaks volumes)
Texas Senate - District 27 (33:26): Sara Stapleton Barrera (to replace outgoing, and also highly problematic incumbent Eddie Lucio Jr.)
Early voting is on NOW through May 20, and Election Day is Tuesday May 24. Any details you need about voting are easily found at GoVoteTexas.org. There ARE NO MINOR ELECTIONS - see you at the polls.
Also - if you'll be in the Austin area on Saturday May 14, we'd appreciate your presence at the Texas State Capitol for our Bans Off Our Bodies rally in support of Roe v Wade and abortion rights, with our own Diana Gomez as co-emcee! The event starts at 11am.
