The Houston Chronicle's politics blog offers a run-down on lobbyists supporting various candidates for the state Senate seat being abandoned by Kyle Janek, who's going to work for a biotech company.
The Democrat in the race is Chris Bell, the former congressman who ran unsuccessfully in the multi-party scrum for governor in 2006. Bizarrely, the bio on his campaign Web site doesn't mention this.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
