TX Sen Primary : Travis County shaping up to be a dogfight

At the end of May I ran into Austin consulting guru David Butts. David was handing out John Sharp for Senate stickers and I asked him if we was really supporting Sharp or just being comical (a valid question since David has a wicked sense of humor). He told me he was really supporting Sharp and allowed me to snap this picture with the lackluster camera on my blackberry...

At that point, I was ready to call Travis County for John Sharp in an potential Sharp v. Bill White fight. I'm glad I didn't since I ran into a force of nature last night by the name of Donna Beth McCormick. For those that don't know, if you want to run for anything in Travis County, Donna Beth is one of the people you talk to first. Along with David Butts, Richard Franklin, Eleanor Thompson and former Sen. Barrientos. She allowed me to take this picture of her at the John Lipscomb kickoff last night...

Though the picture is ass (it's a poor photographer that blames his equipment and I will readily admit to being a poor photographer. I will also readily admit that phone cameras suck), that pin on her lapel is one of those fancy enameled Bill White pins. Score Team White in a brilliant counter to Team Sharp!

So now Travis County is a toss up. I hate it when mom and dad disagree!
