Possibly, but it's a long shot. Well, medium, maybe. :) If Sanchez wins, then Kirk and Sharp will definately win.

Then let's hope that Dallas voters for Kirk decide to pull the Sanchez lever as well.

I agree, RParker. Let's also hope that Sanchez's huge GOTV enterprise with Hispanic and African-American voters works well too. Still, the main executive race in Texas is the Lt. Governor-the Governor does very little. So, we need to get John Sharp to win-and he trails 32-27 in the Scripps poll. Anyone's ballgame there with the large amount of undecided.

My cousin down in Texas is a Sanchez contributor-he says that Sanchez has a real shot at winning. He apparently has energized the Hispanic Base, registering thousands of new minority voters. This, coupled with Kirk's likelihood to turnout African-Americans, should help the ticket.

The insurance crisis may hurt Perry, as voters are apparently angry over this issue.

It would be great to see Sanchez as Governor, just to stick it to Bush.

And you're not a toady for the GOP line? Nobody needs to shut up, you can both display your views.

Mr. Sanchez has a chance, as long as he monitors the bed of Mr. and Mrs. Perry for live boys, dead girls, and the occasional beast of burden. Otherwise, no.

That's funny, I was just talking about necrophilia last night. :)

Speaking of necrophilia and Sanchez's campaign. That was one hell of a waste of money.

Mr. Liberal - did you really think that Sanchez would win?

Polls got this one right too. Zogby predicted this one head on. You know there is an undecided vote out there and it went heavily to the GOP.
