Texas Progressive Alliance Endorses Dan Barrett For TexRoots 2007

The Texas Progressive Alliance, a confederation of political blogs, bloggers, and online activists from across Texas, today announced its endorsement of Dan Barrett (D-Fort Worth) in the special election runoff in House District 97.

"We believe that Dan Barrett will make an excellent addition to the growing numbers of Democrats in the Texas House of Representatives," said Vince Leibowitz, Chair of the Texas Progressive Alliance. "We are pleased to offer him our support," he continued.

In early November, Barrett led a field of seven candidates vying for the seat vacated by retiring State Rep. Anna Mowery, a longtime ally of Texas House Speaker Tom Craddick.

"I believe the voters in House District 97 are ready for a change and will realize that Dan Barrett will be no rubber-stamp for Tom Craddick's regime and policies," said Charles Kuffner of Houston, the vice chair of the Alliance.

This is the second year for the Alliance, which is made up of more than 50 bloggers representing more than 30 of the state's most widely read progressive political blogs, to endorse candidates through its TexRoots program.

The TexRoots program helps bring blog readers and online activists to specific candidates and races where their funds can make an immediate difference. The Alliance endorsed three candidates for its TexRoots 2006 rollout during the mid-term elections including State Rep. Juan Garcia (D-Corpus Christi).

Great News! (0.00 / 0)
Congratulations, Dan.

Get out there and VOTE in HD-97!  Turnout in special elections is vital.  Get it done!

Election Day is Tuesday, December 18.  I think this means that Early Voting is already open.  Someone please confirm?  

HD 97 Early Voting: 12/10-14 (5.00 / 1)
In other words, it starts Monday and ends Friday.  It's a quirky rule for run-offs.

All Hands on Deck in HD97 (5.00 / 1)
I agree with sccs, if you can vote in HD- 97 then please do
Early Voting: Dec. 10th-14th (no weekend voting)
Election Day Dec. 18th.  
My guess is that most of you cannot vote for Dan. What you could do is Give Him Money
Give him $25.00 it won't bankrupt you.  
Or take a day trip to Tarrant County, Dan is block walking every Saturday and Sunday morning and I am sure the campaign or the TCDP or any number of other clubs(TCYD's,Stonewall's, Mid Cities Etc.)  helping Dan out can find something for you to do! just ask.
