Yesterday Harris County had the Republican runoff election for DA. Pat Lykos, a former police officer and judge, defeated Kelly Siegler and will now face democrat and former police chief Clarence (C.O.) Bradford in the general election. I don't know much about Lykos and will support Bradford but am so happy that Siegler was defeated. I really couldn't stand her and her theatrics in court. There is an earlier entry about her in this blog. Also, Siegler's husband was one of the people who had sent Rosenthal some of the offensive emails that led to his resignation. I hope we never have to see her again.
Another truly obnoxious Republican woman was defeated in the runoff for Tom Delay's old seat. Shelly Sekula Gibbs was defeated by Pete Olson who will now face Nick Lampson in the general election. I don't live in this district but have contributed to the Lampson campaign and will contribute more later. The Democrats need to retain control of Congressional District 22 after so many years under Delay.
