    What a joke, the Republican nominee can head to the Bahamas after the primary. Dan Branch drew the gayberhood and other areas a Demo would need to even have a ghost of a chance. This seat will stay Republican by a wide margin, even if this gal does get Lisa Blues dirty money.

  • Finally, someone in District 108 I can support.

    @Aaron. Having choices at the polls is not a joke; it is democracy. Even if you are correct that Ms. Bailey cannot win, I appreciate having an alternative in the general election to the party of Rick Perry. She can bring attention to issues other than just who is a friend of Jerry Brown or who is willing to pray for the cameras.

    Totally agree w/@DemBones about having choices. I like choices.

    However, if Ms. Bailey is the democrat nominee (she does have to get through a primary first), I don’t take it for granted that a Democrat can’t win. Almost everyone here is fiscally conservative, but have huge compassion for those less fortunate. If she is nominated, and runs a very, very smart, hard campaign, she can certainly challenge a Republican nominee and possibly win.

    Another Liberal Democrat making promises she won’t keep “if” elected. People in the Park Cities (with the few exceptions on here who’ll undoubtedly post & pontificate the standard bullsh*t anti-conservative, anti-god, anti-American, anti-gun, anti-work ethic, pro-abortion democrat propaganda). She’s saying she is the child of a pro-business father. BIG DEAL. We’d most likely vote for your father before we vote for you………..Because he worked, took risk and made his own money while you enjoy the unearned fruits of his labor and are a democrat. If her father had done a good job, he’d have raised a daughter with conservative principles and a solid value base…..not some feminist who decided to quit her job and run for office because some insulted her vagina.

    anon obviously has not seen a set of election returns for HD 108. Not a single Democrat has carried the district for ANYTHING. It is even more Republican now than it was three years ago. And with that crook Craig Watkins and mistress political mistress Lisa Blue being a big issue for local Democrats next year, the GOP will once again dominate in central Dallas.

  • DemBones

    @T-Bone. Based on this comment and your other about the “dark skinned trooper” escorting the Texas Tech team, you must be pleased that the Republicans running in District 108 are all white males. However, I doubt any of them agree with you that Ms. Bailey must not have been raised right because she became a Democrat, or that those who would vote for her must be anti-god, anti-American, and anti-work ethic.

    I agree that having democrats run for elected office is a great idea. I would like to see if they have any other platform this year besides infanticide and protecting voter fraud.

  • asmith

    Aaron I think Obama won the old 108 in 2008. I agree with you that with Oak Lawn, the more liberal parts of lakewood pretty much taken out, and with more of Preston Hollow added in this is a pretty red district. Reddest district in Dallas outside of HD112. Craig Watkins will get re-elected and the Dems will sweep the county again with upticket help from Wendy Davis and the blueing of every part of the county outside of Park Cities, Preston Hollow, Lake Highlands, and Coppell.

    Please describe the “blatant attacks on women’s access to —->> basic health care <<— ”

    Is 3rd trimester partial birth abortion basic health care? Does abortion make you healthier?

    I think not.

  • Scott

    Typical rabid right-wing attack dog psychology in these comments. The greatest threat to American democracy today is the militantly repressive policies of these gun-toting pseudo-Christian cryptofascist jackasses with their anti-intellectual, anti-female, anti-American bias. There is no “voter fraud,” and self-medicating middle aged White males have no intrinsic right to dictate to women or anyone else what they should be allowed to do with their own bodies. Vote Democrat and stand up for the Real America!

  • NFW

    Wow, Scott! Perhaps you should take a page from the “self-medicating middle aged white males” and take some meds of your own.

    Let’s get to issues, securing the border, funding to support and resolve the issue of immigrant children that are now in the US holding centers, funding for healthcare programs, improvement of public school systems, funding for higher education and the local police departments going mad.
    What does she mean by “basic healthcare”? Under the Affordable Care Act all are required to medical coverage, and preventive healthcare is covered at low to no cost by the majority of plans.
    The Supreme Court ruled all marriages/domestic unions must be recognized equally by all states, if you are hoping to get gay “marriage” passed in Texas, you better figure out how you are going to appease the Bible belt, and Catholic populace when you redefine a word in their bible . You’re going to have better luck posting images of Mohammed face.
