51. I never vote a straight party ticket

I agree. I never vote a straight party ticket for many of the same reasons. I will not be voting for Kesha in this election. However from a party standpoint, we can not let Kesha being on the ballot stop the party from getting out the vote and getting base voters to vote for the party on a straight party basis.

If we tell voters to vote for all democrats other than Kesha, then we will have voters get confused and not vote for Fredericka or Tanya (Fredericka Petry and Tanya Watson are two very strong Democratic candidates for district judge races in Fort Bend County). It is safer to ignore Kesha even is she gets a few more votes from people who find her positions stupid and repugnant.. Kesha has taken up too much time and attention already. The Texas Democratic Party has already passed a resolutions to the effect that Texas Democrats can ignore Kesha and exclude her from our events and that is sufficient.

Kesha is not going to win the Texas CD 22 even if Pete Olson is found with a dead girl or live boy in his bed. Houston is an expensive media market and Kesha lacks the resources to wage a competitive campaign. Olson will not bother debating Kesha and she will be ignored by the media. Kesha may break 30% or 40% in this race and that is an improvement over the 29% she got in 2010 but she will not be a factor in this race.
