As previously noted, there’s a huge gaggle of candidates running for Senate this year – 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. The first Democrat in the race and the subject of today’s interview is Maxey Scherr. Scherr is a Texas Tech graduate and attorney from El Paso. Though this is her first campaign for office, she and her family have long been involved in Democratic politics. Her campaign so far has been as much about Ted Cruz as it has been about John Cornyn, and that was one of many things we discussed.
