To say the least, there was a lot of uncertainty at the beginning of the year when I was planning out my interview schedule for the primary election. There were no maps for the State House, State Senate, and Congress. We didn’t know if the primary would take place in April, May, June, or later, and we didn’t know if some offices might have their primaries on a different date than some other offices. Even for the offices not affected by redistricting, we couldn’t say for certain what the lineups were going to be because of a secondary filing period yet to come. As you might imagine, this made planning a challenge.
But I couldn’t wait for the courts to settle things. There were already too many races and too many candidates to let the calendar start slipping away. So I started with races where there were no disputes about boundaries, and went from there. Along the way, I covered a lot of ground, and since some of these interviews were published more than three months ago, I thought I’d list them all here in a convenient form as a reminder. As I said yesterday, there will be more to come, some likely from the TDP convention and others later on as we gear up for November. In the meantime, here’s a list of all the interviews I’ve already done, organized by level of government:
Harris County races
Constable, Precinct 1: Cindy Vara-Leija – Interview
Constable, Precinct 1: Quincy Whitaker – Interview
Constable, Precinct 1: Alan Rosen – Interview
Constable, Precinct 1: Grady Castleberry – Interview
Whew. It’s been a busy few months, and I don’t see a whole lot of letup between now and November. I’ll be back with more after a brief respite.
