Interview with Mike Fjetland

As the Trib recently noted, there are twenty-one candidates for US Senate this year in Texas – eight Republicans, counting incumbent John Cornyn; five Democrats, four (!) independents, three Libertarians, and a Green, who may or may not be in a pear tree. We’re interested in the Democratic hopefuls here, and I’ll have interviews with two of them this week. First up is Mike Fjetland, a business man, attorney, and international relations expert. Fjetland is the most experienced candidate among the Democrats, having run multiple campaigns against Tom DeLay in CD22, in the Republican primary and as an independent. We covered a lot of ground in the interview:

    The top two choices in this primary are Fjetland and Scherr. It will be a sad day for Democrats if Alameel and/or Rogers even make the runoff.

    PDiddle-What will the general election numbers be?

  3. Cath Bridges says:

    Michael Fjetland and Maxey Scherr are the ONLY choices as far as I’m concerned. I say Fjetland because of experience & string progressive platform. He appeals to independent voters too. However; Maxey is qualified and I have nothing negative to say about her.
    Alameel is a joke and the Democrats pushing him as a progressive or strong independent are delusional. He can’t beat John Cornyn. Fjetland and Scherr are Dems best hope!
