Last issue we kicked off our campaign coverage with a story on the District 10
State Board of Education race, "Right--Wing Revolution," by Roseana Auten, and
a brand new Election Board on the Chronicle web site, at
/election//election/.The web site includes a list of polling places for early voting, links to the web sites of political candidates, state and county election divisions, and links to your favorite partisan sites.
This week we continue our coverage with stories on two Travis County races: the District Attorney's and Sheriff's offices. Next week we will serve up stories on three state and federal races: Phil Gramm's U.S. Senate seat, Lloyd Doggett's U.S. Representative District 10 seat, and the campaign for Railroad Commissioner between Republican Carol Keeton-Rylander and Democrat Hector Uribe. And, just in time to show us that the idea of a three, or maybe even a four-party system is not dead, the Natural Law Party comes along to spice up all these races. We'll report on the "less-stress" party phenomenon next week as well.
The Chronicle will offer its endorsements in next week's issue. Early polling ends November 1 and election day is Tuesday, November 5. Happy voting.
