Pruett Wins in TX CD-14

Well the majority, such as it was in a voter turnout that can only be characterized as miserable, has spoken. Galena Park Police Chief Robert Pruett is the Democratic nominee in Texas Congressional District 14. What the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks, as they say, a win's a win. GOTV defeated Pruett's opponent.

Pruett edged his opponent, Republican candidate for HD 135 (in 1992) Winston Cochran by 106votes (1,337 to 1,231) or 52.06% to 47.93%.

He now faces an uphill battle against a guy who CD-14 Republicans and Libertarians keep returning to Congress. A guy who does nothing for them. A guy who voted against any federal aid for the Hurricane damaged Gulf Coast – his district, his constituents.

Why this is an uphill battle I still cannot fathom.

But it is.
