  1. In what many considered as no surprise, Houston City Councilwoman At-Large 4 Amanda Edwards (D) declared her campaign for the United States Senate yesterday, jumping into what's likely to be considered a crowded Dem Primary with State Senator Royce West (D-Dallas) likely to declare his US Senate campaign sometime this month. Edwards will finish out the remainder of her 1st 4-year term on the Houston City Council, which expires on January 2nd, 2020 & won't seek reelection to another 4 years to her At-Large City Council seat. Thoughts on how Edwards (assuming she wins the Dem Primary) will do against United States Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), who'll be a strong favorite in his reelection bid for a 4th 6-year term in November 2020 ? Remember, Cornyn has been undefeated in every single election: Primaries, Runoffs & General Elections since 1984. https://www.texastribune.org/2019/07/18/amanda-edwards-houston-council-member-challenge-senator-john-cornyn/ https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Houston-Councilwoman-Amanda-Edwards-announces-run-14105641.php https://www.statesman.com/news/20190718/amanda-edwards-joins-crowded-democratic-primary-challenging-john-cornyn
  2. In a surprise to nobody, former Houston City Councilwoman At-Large 2 Sue Lovell (D) jumped into the crowded campaign for Houston Mayor, some think she might take more progressive votes away from incumbent Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (D) in November. Any thoughts on how Lovell's entry will impact the overall contest ? https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Former-Houston-councilwoman-Sue-Lovell-running-14063773.php https://theleadernews.com/lovell-running-for-mayor/
  3. How's that going lately ?
  4. RadioGalveston is being launched that includes a weekly podcast which features weekly Island events as well as interviews with local businesses & Islanders. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/06/radio-galveston.html http://radiogalveston.com/ Let me know your thoughts on RadioGalveston ?
  5. Looks like Paul Gallant got the boot from Sports Radio 610 KILT-AM Houston after just 8 years. http://www.chron.com/amp/Paul-Gallant-let-go-Sports-Radio-610-KILT-AM-Mad-13936470.php Plus it's increasingly likely more changes are coming fast at the station. Your thoughts on the news ?
  6. BREAKING NEWS: Boykins is IN & guess who's his campaign treasurer: former Houston Mayor Lee P. Brown (D): https://abc13.com/politics/houston-councilman-boykins-makes-his-mayoral-run-official5332575/
  7. BREAKING NEWS: In case people have been living under a rock over the weekend, Houston City Councilman District D Dwight Boykins (D) is considering running for Houston, TX Mayor & his campaign website is up, not sure until he makes an official announcement on his political future considering he's eligible to seeking a 3rd term in the Houston City Council (having been elected in 2013 & reelected in 2015). https://abc13.com/politics/site-leaked-for-houston-councilman-considering-mayoral-run/5326954/ https://www.click2houston.com/news/dwight-boykins-considering-run-for-mayor-after-campaign-website-activated-he-says https://www.fox26houston.com/news/410461975-video
  8. In light of the constant battle over the voter-approved Proposition B from last fall, which Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (D) is fighting to nullify & dismantle as well as the Turner administration's war on the HFD Firefighters Union & the Houston Fire Department, will this doom his reelection campaign this fall ? https://abc13.com/politics/in-wake-of-prop-b-way-forward-still-not-clear/5311376/ https://www.click2houston.com/news/houston-firefighters-union-to-discuss-prop-b-developments https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Turner-rejects-fire-union-request-to-take-13868295.php
  9. ABC 12 KSAT-TV San Antonio's Bill Barajas will be joining NBC 2 KPRC-TV Houston & according to Mike McGuff of mikemguff.com., Barajas will be a reporter. "In what might be the worst kept secret I'm happy to announce that after almost 9 years, I'm going HOME," Barajas wrote over the weekend. "I have accepted a job at KPRC Channel 2 in Houston. I have one week left at KSAT & while I'm beyond excited to start the new gig I will forever love SA & the friends/co-workers that have become like a family to me." He's also the son of former FOX 26 KRIV-TV Houston News Anchor Mike Barajas. "Bill is a graduate of the University of Houston just like his old man & he is following in the broadcasting footsteps," Mike Barajas told mikemcguff.com back in 2013 when Bill Barajas started at KSAT 12. His cousin is also Ch. 13 KTRK-TV Houston News Anchor Erik Barajas. "Erik worked at KSAT before moving up to KTRK," Bill Barajas told mikemcguff.com in 2013. "He always talked about the first rate station that they run there." In reality, the Barajas clan is now playing catchup in the Houston TV News dynasty world. While Erik & Bill are now working for Ch. 13 & NBC 2 respectively, both of these stations also employ Rascon's. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/05/bill-barajas-kprc-2.html
  10. I have a question, who was the person that swore in Shivers as the 37th Governor ?
  11. Good afternoon HAIF bloggers. Unless some of y'all have been living under a rock or a secret beach retreat in the West Coast, Ch. 13 brought in Brheanna Berry to join the ABC O&O Station back in early February. She came from News 3 WTKR-TV Norfolk, VA (she had been there since August of 2017). Plus Berry worked with KELO-TV Sioux Falls, SD as the Morning Anchor/Reporter from March 2016 to 2017; she was also the station's heathbeat reporter. She began her TV News career at KLFY-TV News 10 Lafayette, LA as the Weekend Anchor/Reporter/Multimedia Journalist from November 2014 to March 2016. Berry graduated from James Madison University with a broadcasting degree & also served in the VA Army National Guard as well as the LA Army National Guard. https://abc13.com/about/newsteam/brhe-berry https://www.facebook.com/ABC13brheberry Let me know your thoughts on Berry at Ch. 13 & how do you think she'll do here in Houston's ABC O&O Station ?
  12. Thank you very much for giving us full detail on Jester's funeral services. I read that when the public viewing was held inside the TX State Senate Chamber of the TX State Capitol, they had an open casket with the flag-draped US flag draped on it.
