About this voting thing

Not one member of the various legislative bodies elected to represent me is facing a challenger at any level this year:



Rep. John Culberson? Unopposed both in the primary and general elections.

U.S. Senate? This is the off-year election for our Jr. and Sr. Senator. No Election.

State Sen. Dan Patrick? Unopposed both in the primary and general elections.

State Rep. Gary Elkins? Unopposed both in the primary and general elections.


Granted, I reside in what is considered one of the Reddest districts in America but still, you'd think the Tea Party or someone on the left would have made a run.


It's hell living in what is considered a "safe" district. Your elected representation consists of two blow-hards and one piece of legislative window-dressing.


That doesn't mean there's not a lot of executive, judicial and local election stuff that needs taking care of....certainly at the County level.
