Republican Pete Flores could win this district. In 2014, it was split evenly (49-49) between Greg Abbott and Wendy Davis. That would be bad, obviously, for Senate Democrats, especially if they didn't pick up one of the 2-3 contested seats currently held by Rs.

For the last year, the Aransas County DA has refused to take any criminal cases from the Rockport police. Is the DA a good-government crusader, or does she just have a vendetta against the cops? digs into the small-town cluster#$%

I’ve said it before. I disagree with Texas Observer more than I agree with them, but I still think they have some great pieces. This is one of them.

FEATURE: The Aransas County DA hasn’t prosecuted criminal cases from the Rockport Police Department for more than a year. Is she taking on bad cops or abusing her power?

We are super-stoked to be hiring a multimedia producer. This is a job that comes with lots of creative freedom at a mission-driven publication in the strangest state in the union. What's not to like?

I missed this yesterday. One startling thing about Ann Richards' place in Texas history: "Before she was elected state treasurer in 1982, no woman had held statewide office for more than 50 years."

Wed. night on 7th street, I saw two guys on scooters weaving in and out of traffic and running red lights without looking. Wouldn't be surprised if things did't end well for them.
