Democracy Fest Was A Big Hit

All reports I'm aware of form Democracy Fest have been that it was an overwhelming success. There are some great pictures of it here - be sure and scroll down there are many pictures - especially of our Williamson County candidates, Jim Stauber and Karen Felthauser. From what I've heard so far Williamson County had an outstanding presence at the conference. The way it looks from this Austin Chronicle article, Taking Back Texas, the Republicans seem surprised that we are even fielding candidates against Krusee and Gattis:
There are more incumbents as well, but we'll be hearing more from those races soon enough. Here's just a quick rundown of Republican House members considered vulnerable in '06: Victoria Rep. Geanie Morrison, Dallas Rep. Bill Keffer (not to be confused with the Jim Keffer of Eastland), and Lubbock Rep. Carl Isett. It's hard to believe that the "D's" have even tagged House Transportation Chair Mike Krusee of Round Rock and rising star Georgetown Rep. Dan Gattis for Democratic challenges, but there you have it
I certainly don't see what's so hard to believe about that. This is why we need to run candidates in every race. Make them spend money where they didn't think they would need to for one reason. When is the last time these guys have had to answer for their record? It's way past time.

DemocracyFest was great. Barbara Radnofsky made friends and a great impression, in my totally biased opinion. It's all about bringing people together, fostering confidence and common ground, and then getting on with the tough business of winning back this state.
