I share your interest on this race. Sessions has been shuffling all around Dallas over the past few years, so I don't really consider him to have an incumbancy advantage over Frost. A good tough race, Frost should get a better website, this is high-end internet user territory, he could make inroads there. Spending $1M on an internet campaign/advertising heavily targeted to those burbs, could be the few points he needs to win this. But it's tough, i bet they pushed hard for a primary turnout, but still missed beating Sessions total, and Republicans seem to turnout higher in the general. Frost needs a break in this race, hope he gets it.
Frost is a mean and smart SOB and can win this thing...let's hope R turnout is decreased since TX is a sure R state in 2004 and a serious GOTV campaign can help save him.
Just wait for a few more "Let them watch color TV" comments.
Pete, by the way, if you are reading this, tsk tsk that all your brothers got into law school and were able to follow in Daddy's footsteps, but you were so academically challenged (i.e. STUPID) that you could not get admitted anywhere (even with daddy trying to pull strings). Hey, at least you got to be middle management at the phone company (worse than a government bureaucrat) and make the same ca. $45k for ca. 20 years because you were too pathetic to ever get a promotion. Well, at least you got that nifty SBC portfolio of all that bonus stuff, for, well, getting elected to Congress. How many millions is it worth now? - nice step up from a middle mangement bureacrat position. Now you can mingle in that country club crowd that you always wanted to be a part of.
By the way, Pete, all your fellow Texas Congressional Republicans are NOT your friends. There is a reason your district was made the most vulnerable to Martin. It's because all your colleagues made sure as hell certain precincts did not get added to their districts and you were too stupid to figure it out, so they dumped it all on you.
Oh, and one last thing Pete, how many years did Adrian Plesha get?
And, it's so nice to see that one of Mr. Sessions's pet causes is "education", given that neither of his sons attends public school. I guess that's why he voted against "No Child Left Behind".
Sessions voted against "No Child Left Behind"?!?!?!?
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
When I was last in Texas (2000), he had a difficult race too.
His weakness is that he's lame.
Pete Sessions is dumber than a box of rocks, and Martin Frost is the Democrats' Tom DeLay.
Maybe they can bore themselves to death during a debate and voters can select from REAL candidates.
To compare Martin Frost in any way to Tom Delay is pure horseshit. Tom Delay is a corporate crony crook hell bent on destroying the middle class. Martin is a common sense middle of the road public servant who has an incredible record of supporting working people.
Then again, notgonnatell might have meant the comparison as a compliment to Martin because he loves Tom Delay because Delay was behind the re-redistricting, which notgonnatell so passionately defended in prior postings because it allowed Green to upset Bell in Houston.
26 years in the same elective office is far too long.
Frost should seek another office or job.
DeLay is "hell bent on destroying the middle class" ?!?
Hallucinogenics can be fun, but all things in moderation.
One must be on hallucinogenics NOT to realize that Delay is hell bent on destroying the middle class.
26 years too long? I suppose that applies to Senators Thurmond and Stevens too? Well, 4 years has been way to long for King George.
Sorry Folks, but I liove in Dallas and this area is firmly Republican in this district. There are too many North Dallas votes and they will not abandon Sessions.
Give Frost's PR machine kudos for convincing the national media that this race can be won. But the final numbers should be about 55-45 in favor of Sessions.
