To me, this story about the race in Harris County Precinct 2 between Commissioner Sylvia Garcia and her Republican opponent Jack Morman boils down to this one paragraph:
Morman is short on specifics as to how he would cut spending, better manage construction projects or respond to jail overcrowding. Rather, he is running against Garcia in part by running against President Barack Obama.
Jack Morman knows nothing about how the county operates or what he would do as County Commissioner, but he hates socialism and fascism and loves freedom and long walks on the beach, and isn’t that enough? Spending is bad – well, spending on stuff you don’t like is bad – and not spending is good. What else do you need to know? Stace has more.
