For anyone out there suffering from election deprivation, we have a vote today in Texas. Republican Joan Huffman and Democrat Chris Bell will square off in a special election in Senate District 17, which was vacated by Republican Kyle Janek.
Bell is the former Houston City Councilman, former Houston mayoral candidate, former congressman and former Democratic nominee for governor. Now he's running for the Texas Senate, all before the age of 50. While he's the higher profile candidate (Huffman is a former judge), the district does have a Republican lean, so this should be a close race.
If Bell wins, the new Texas Senate will have 18 Republicans and 13 Democrats. If Huffman wins, it will be 19-12.
