BoR: Help find good candidates for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals

With filing deadline approaching, Burnt Orange Report promotes a plea from Scott Cobb to help locate good candidates to run against incumbents on the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.

Cobb points out that, "Candidates for the court are required to submit 50 signatures from each of Texas' 14 appellate districts, so even after a candidate is found, the blogging community should be ready to help the candidates get those signatures." Good point! I think the blogosphere could easily assist with accomplishing this task before the filing deadline. The question is, will there be horses in the race to support?

The upset by Democrat Dan Barrett yesterday in the race for a Texas House seat from a Fort Worth district that usually votes Republican is more evidence that 2008 is going to be a big year for Democrats.

If well-qualified Democrats run for the three CCA seats that are on the ballot in 2008, they might all win.

Where are the candidates? It is time to show yourselves.
