Richard Raymond’s 2007 Capitol Report VLOG (video blog)
Today I cosponsored a bill to move the 2008 Texas Primaries to February.
Today I cosponsored a bill, House Bill 993, by Rep. Alonzo of Dallas. This bill would move the Democratic and Republican primaries in 2008 to the first Tuesday in February.
We’re going to have a new President elected next year. And the Texas primary right now is too late in the process for Texas to have any meaningful impact on who the nominees are — both Democrat and Republican. I’ve talked with a lot of Democrats and Republicans and we’re all in agreement that it would be a good idea to move the primary to the first Tuesday in February. It’s after New Hampshire but it’s still early enough in the process that we’ll actually have a real impact.
I am so impressed with our Representatives using multi-media tools and the Internet to get their message out. Congratulations to Representative Raymond on his video blog! And he’s got the post and video in both English and Spanish too.
Oh and kudos on the bill too which I support whole heartedly. HB 993 We need to make sure Texas counts.
