FOX 26 KRIV-TV Houston political reporter Greg Groogan reported that former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia (D) will run for Harris County Commissioner, Precinct 2 in the upcoming 2018 elections against 2-term incumbent Jake Morman [R]. How do y'all believe Garcia will fare against Morman ?
The revolving door from Capitol Hill continues.... US Rep. Gene Green (D-TX), who has represented the 29th Congressional District since 1993, announced he will not be seeking reelection to another term in 2018, ending almost 46 years of public service. He previously served in the TX State Senate in the 6th District from 1985 until his election to Congress in 1992 & the TX House of Representatives in the 95th & 140th Districts from 1973 to 1985. This will open the doors for several ambitious politicos, could we see former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia (D) running for this US House seat again ? https://www.texastribune.org/2017/11/13/us-rep-gene-green-democrat-retire-congress/
Unless people have been living under rocks or worse, Harris County Judge Ed Emmett [R] announced back on November 17th, 2016, that he will be seeking reelection to a 3rd consecutive full 4-year term in the 2018 elections after months & months of speculation on his future. Emmett, 67, was appointed as Harris County Judge in 2007 following the resignation of then-County Judge Robert Eckels [R]. He won a special election in 2008 & won reelection to full 4-year terms in 2010 & 2014. He previously represented East Harris County in the TX House of Representatives representing District 79 (1979-1983) & District 127 (1983-1987). He was the unsuccessful GOP nominee for TX Railroad Commissioner, Place 3 in 1988. http://www.chron.com/news/politics/houston/article/Harris-County-Judge-Ed-Emmett-will-won-t-seek-10619387.php How do y'all like Emmett's plans on seeking reelection in 2018 ? A.) Love it. B.) Hate it. C.) Wait & See. I don't see former Houston, TX Mayor Annise Parker (D) running against Emmett in 2018 because he'd easily destroy her by 20+ percentage points.
With the clock ticking down on 3-term Houston Mayor Annise Parker (D)'s administration in which she's got 5 months left, there's discussion on whether she'll run for political office again in the future. We can pretty guess that her plans is in the Executive Branch & she's also considering running for statewide or countywide office in the next election cycle. She's flatly REFUSED to run for Congress-period! http://www.houstonpublicmedia.org/news/will-houston-mayor-annise-parker-run-for-office-again/ Ladies & Gentlemen, I want everyone to bring their input on which political office do you see her running for? A. Harris County Judge in 2018 B. TX Railroad Commissioner in 2016 C. TX Lieutenant Governor in 2018 D. United States Senator in 2018 (Would be fun to watch Cruz-Parker showdown) E. TX Governor in 2018
