3. Dangit.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised to see Kinky in the lead.

4. Technically, "None of The Above" is the leader...
... and I haven't heard of about half the people on the list. Kinky has name recognition throughout the state, if nothing else.

6. I voted for Hank yesterday, however
I went back today to check and out of curiosity, I checked the Republican poll and found I could still vote in that. Soooooooo, all the Chron's Republican readers can vote in the Democratic poll, too. So let them vote for Kinky and none of the above in the poll. Come March, they'll be busy with their own.

13. No, he's your basic Texan--real Texan
Edited on Wed Nov-18-09 02:04 PM by texastoast
What is not to love about focusing on education, reasonable property rights, women's right to choose, renewable energy, and getting the lobbyists out?

And you likely know (with a handle like yours) that real Texans are like Ben Franklin Americans--liberal, conservative, and always populist.

14. Kinky will have to face the primary
Last time, he ran Independent, using a petition. He didn't need to face the traditional Democratic primary voter.
