Less-than-stealth Dems Sylvester Turner and Bill White versus totally uncloaked Elephants Orlando Sanchez and Michael Berry makes for a great "nonpartisan" race in Houston. :)
As I've said on Kuff's blog, I'd rather have Joe Roach. :) Oh well.
I'm a fan of Bill White, but I'm basically fine with anyone but Sanchez. Sanchez would be the new GOP Hispanic puppet. Berry is too far-right to win a run-off should he get in, and Turner is decent but too close to the House GOP leadership in my opinion. I've always found it interesting how Houston's non-partisan mayoral elections always seem to be partisan. Dallas and Austin are much less so. Of course that doesn't make them any better. Dallas mayoral elections tend to go along racial lines whereas Austin it's usually along environmentalist vs. development lines.
