Restless natives rebuff court nominee as TCDLA President-elect

Austin criminal defense attorney Keith Hampton faced two elections this year - one for President-elect of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and one for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, where he is the Democratic nominee facing incumbent Michael Keasler. This week Keith lost the first one, Mark Bennett reports, when TCDLA members selected Gary Trichter in his stead to lead the criminal defense bar.

I don't know much about the internal politics behind the contest, but the natives are clearly restless.
