Taking On the Texas Two-Step

Remember that confusing dual primary/caucus thing last March? Now's your chance to get rid of it!

If you were a Clinton or Obama supporter this year – and if you live in Travis Co., you were most likely one or the other – you no doubt remember the craziness and confusion around the Texas Democratic Party's dual primary/caucus system back in March. Some people loved it. Some hated it. Most were confused by it. The party is now looking at whether to scrap or somehow revise this system and wants your feedback. Party leaders have held six hearings on the "Texas two-step" around the state this fall; the seventh and final one will be held this Friday, Nov. 14, here in Austin at the AFL-CIO Building, 1106 Lavaca, at 10am. Get more info at www.txdemocrats.org or 478-9800.
