Campaign Post

I went to the Laura Hinojosa campaign HQ today to help out for a while. I need some pictures of her block walkers to make a multimedia "presentation" for Tuesday night. Laura, Sally, Michael, and Elisa were preparing for some stuff. Luckily, I got there in time to help make signs for the polling location signholders, one of whom will be me. I'll be holding a sign in Edinburg. I live in Mission, but I want to catch the foreclosure auction at the courthouse, for extra credit on my businesss law class, which is also on Tuesday. Good thing Spring Break has kicked in, I'll be busy Monday and Tuesday. Anyway, Laura is still running around meeting people and campaigning hard. She has really put a lot of work into the campaign. I know everybody will be so relieved this coming Wednesday. They've been getting up extra early and going home late just to maximize their chances.

I imagine other campaigns are at the end of their ropes right now and can't wait for the primaries to be over. For some candidates, the primaries are just one hurdle. They are hoping to have a runoff election in November. If that happens, they have more work ahead of them. Wouldn't it be cool if JD Salinas and Ramon Garcia had a runoff? We'd get to see them slaughter each other for a few more months and maybe even take the campaign into the million dollar realm. I'm not saying that it's going to happen. We'll probably have a definite winner. But if it were to happen, bloggers would have plenty of material for writing.
