Texas progressives wonder who, if anybody, will win
the Dem #TXPrimary for governor

The Texas Progressive Alliance is as clueless as 2/3 of potential Democratic voters three weeks ago as to who wins, or advances to a runoff, in the Democratic gubernatorial race as it brings you this week's roundup. (Your blogger offers 50-50 odds it goes to a runoff but won't guess who makes the cut.)

Brains and Eggs offers a thorough roundup of his last pre-primary thoughts, including pondering that very question above.

Off the Kuff wrapped up his looked at Beto O'Rourke's visit-everywhere campaign strategy with hope and a sense that it's worth doing this way regardless of the outcome.

SocraticGadfly takes note of the DNC fraud lawsuit appeal, and while he still thinks something is there, is glad Jared Beck ain't his lawyer.

Neil at All People Have Value made note of the weekly John Cornyn Houston Office Protest.

The Lewisville Texan Journal notes that Empower Texas is sneezing its Michael Q. Sullivan Mucus all over local races.

And here are some posts of interest from other Texas blogs.

Scott Braddock documents Greg Abbott's contempt for Republican legislators.

David Bruce Collins has some thoughts on the implosion of the Harris County Green Party as an organized entity, with which Brains has some degree of disagreement.

Scott Braddock documents Greg Abbott's contempt for Republican legislators.

Stephen Young at The Dallas Observer says it’s impossible to tell Loopy Lupe Valdez’s chance of winning the Dem governor’s primary.

In a twofer, Young may also be finding his inner Jim Schutze in the well-deserved bitch-slapping the Snooze on shitty clickbait website stories.

And, speaking of, Schutze talks about how Secretary in the HUD (think about it) Pyramid (Scheme?) Ben Carson has brought Trump-Team grifting his personalized brand, to Big D.

The BIG takeaway? As of the time of that piece, almost 2/3 of potential Dem voters said they were still undecided.

Mark Bennett shows what disrespect for the justice system really looks like.

Even if Texas Dems don’t win a single statewide office in the general, Bonded likes what he sees out of the class of voters in the primary.

The Lunch Tray highlights some bad food research.

Better Texas Blog explains why Medicaid work requirements are a lousy idea.

Finally, congratulations to Murray Newman for ten years of blogging.
