Supports Dan Grant

RECEIVED Thu., Feb. 14, 2008

Dear Editor,
    Regarding the endorsement for Congressional District 10 [“'Chronicle' Endorsements," News, Feb. 15]: Dan Grant has earned the endorsement of Hank Gilbert (2006 candidate for agriculture commissioner), Ted Ankrum (2006 CD 10 candidate from Harris County), Rep. Senfronia Thompson (District 141, Harris County), the Harris County Central Labor Council (AFL-CIO), the Brazos Valley Central Labor Council (AFL-CIO), Harris County Democrats, Houston GLBT Political Caucus, and the Texas AFL-CIO.
    Dan's support in the rural areas and Harris County is strong, and the voters will be out in force all across the district on March 4.
    I believe Dan has what it takes to beat McCaul in November.
    I will point out that Mr. Doherty stated in this very publication (regarding his campaign finance chair's fundraiser for Mitt Romney) that "Anybody that naive doesn't deserve to be allowed to have political commentary. They ought to go to school and study something" [“Doherty's Romney Connection,” News, Jan. 18].
    Is this the kind of folksy charm that will win over voters? I don't think so. Rural and suburban Houston voters are smarter than that.
