Frost vs. Sessions
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

All politics are local, right? Well, here in Texas there's an interesting story going on with the race for Congressional District 32, which was redistricted recently (remember the Texas Dems fleeing the state to keep from voting?). Well, the redistricting held up, and most people expected Democrat Martin Frost, formerly of the 24th District to wilt away now that he's up against Republican Pete Sessions in the newly apportioned 32nd District (by the way, I voted for Sessions last time around).

But apparently that hasn't happened, and they're in a dead heat:

Sessions leads Frost 50 percent to 44 percent in the poll of likely voters conducted Thursday through Saturday in the 32nd District for The Dallas Morning News. Six percent of the respondents were unsure in the survey published Tuesday. The margin of error was 3.5 percentage points.

Ah, the power of negative campaigning. Sessions has pounced on Frost for $600 worth of property back taxes he owed. In a classy counter-move, the Frost campaign hunted down newspaper clippings about Sessions streaking along with hundreds of other students at Southwest Texas University when he was 18.

The only ad I've personally seen on TV though, was one in which Sessions used footage of 9/11, and talked about how he had sponsored legislation to help keep shoulder-launched rockets out of the hands of terrorists. I don't remember if he mentioned Frost in that ad, but the presentation and tone struck me the wrong way.

So basically, I don't like either one of these a-holes, at least from the way they've run their campaigns.


So I'll try to ignore the shit-slinging, get me an issues guide on both candidates, and cast my vote accordingly.
