We will be taking Texas back in 2008. One of the people who is currently leading the charge is Larry Joe Doherty. Larry Joe won the March primary and has been busy every since meeting people and getting the message out. Well, it seems people are starting to take notice.
A new IRV Poll shows Larry Joe with in 5.4% of McCall.
For the 2008 race, in polling on June 2, 528 likely voters gave McCaul a 5.4% lead over Democratic challenger Larry Joe Doherty. McCaul received 51.7% to Doherty’s 46.3%, with 2.0% undecided.
TX-10 is described as a ‘barbell district’ due to having a large chunk of the district in Travis County (Austin), a large chunk in Harris County (Houston) and a thin strip of highway frontage in between. In 2006, Harris went 71-26 for McCaul and Travis went 56-38 for Ankrum. In this poll, McCaul takes Harris 63-33 and Doherty takes Travis by the same 63-33. Travis is the slightly larger end of the TX-10 barbell, but the ‘bar’ in between went 70-30 for McCaul, resulting in a McCaul lead.
Here is a race Texans can sink their teeth into and help get a Democrat in the US Congress. We need better representation in Washington. Larry Joe can win if we help!!!Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 2 so far )
