A Field of Challengers

Burnt Orange Report and Quorum Report has this great news:

The San Antonio Express News is reporting that, "Republican Darrel Brown of Bandera County will formally announce on Wednesday his campaign for the seat held by Sen. Frank Madla, D-San Antonio, in next year's election."

The word is that Sen Madla is not running again anyway, but Rep Gallego is planning to move up from state representative and take over Madla's job. If Darrel Brown does decide to challenge Gallego I will be surprised. Gallego's district is large and covers most of Madla's district already and I can't see a world in which Gallego loses.

This does show that DINO's need to be concerned. People are getting upset with so called Democrats voting for developers over the environment and the religious community over civil rights and liberties. Maybe we will see a challenge against Armbrister?

On another note, there is nothing but good news about Todd Baxter's seat. Kelly White made a good run against him last time and it is good to see someone is willing to try again.

Add Hugh Brady's name to the likely contenders in the Democratic primary seeking to challenge Austin Republican state Rep. Todd Baxter. Brady is a former staffer for state Rep. Glenn Maxey. He is an attorney with the Fitzwater Firm and one of his clients is the House Democratic Caucus. Brady is also the editor of Texas House Practice, a guide book to Texas House procedures.
