Election Season

I haven't been updating this blog much. Since the Legislature only meets for 140 days every 2 years (some people think it needs to meet for 2 days every 140 years), and since Texas is not a ballot initiative state (meaning that any and all attempts to amend the Texas Constitution have to originate in the Legislature), there hasn't been much to report.

About the only thing I can say is that I am running for State Representative in my district. I should be on the November ballot as a Libertarian, running against the incumbent establishment Republican. If I somehow win, I would be the first Libertarian to win a seat in the Texas Legislature. I can then officially propose personhood bills.

I haven't done much campaigning yet since our district lines are still in flux thanks to a court challenge to the redistricting that the Legislature did in the last legislative session.
