THE website of the Texas Secretary of State has a place where returns are posted for the primary elections being held on 02 March 2010. Go here Election Night Returns to begin your search if you’re interested in the Governor’s race or some of the legislative contests.
What we’re going to do is provide separate links for each of the State Board of Education races we’ve been following. The results at the Secretary of State’s website will be dynamically updated every three minutes, so you can keep each race open in a separate browser tab.
We’ve discussed many of these races here: Primary Election Picks, and it’s too late to repeat all that we’ve written in previous posts about the situation in Texas. We said it all here: Texas, the Republican Party, & the World.
The time has come to watch how the votes come in.
In the District 5 Republican primary, Tim Tuggey (our pick) is running against incumbent Ken Mercer, a flaming, full-blown creationist. The election returns can be seen here: State Board of Education, District 5, Republican.
In the District 5 Democratic primary, Rebecca Bell-Metereau (our pick) is running against Daniel Boone, Josiah James Ingalls and Robert Bohmfalk. The election returns can be seen here: State Board of Education, District 5, Democrat.
In District 9 — the biggie — incumbent creationist dentist Don McLeroy is being challenged by Thomas Ratliff (our pick) in the Republican primary. No one is running in the Dem primary. The election returns can be seen here: State Board of Education, District 9, Republican.
In District 10, the seat that had been held by retiring Board member Cynthia Dunbar (a flaming creationist), is open. Rebecca Osborne (our pick) is running against Brian Russell (endorsed by Dunbar) and Marsha Farney. The election returns can be seen here: State Board of Education, District 10, Republican.
Those are the only races we’ve been paying attention to. If Mercer, McLeroy, and Russell (Dunbar’s clone) are defeated, we’ll be a happy Curmudgeon.
As we post this, there are no results available yet. The night is young.
