THE link in the red box is to the website of the Texas Secretary of State where returns are posted for the Texas State Board of Education primary runoff election being held on 13 April 2010 (but at the moment they say it’s on the 9th — oops, they fixed it). The results will be dynamically updated every three minutes, so you can stay up-to-date by keeping the race results open in a separate browser tab, and refreshing it from time to time.
The website of the Texas Secretary of State has a place where all election returns are posted. Go here Election Night Returns to begin your search if you’re interested in other election contests.
This is the one we’ve all been waiting for. We last wrote about it here: Farney or Russell: Texas SBOE Runoff Getting Nasty.
The runoff is in District 10 to see who will be the GOP candidate for the seat currently held by Cynthia Dunbar, who didn’t run for re-election (see Dunbar’s Seat). It was Dunbar who recently purged Thomas Jefferson and the Enlightenment from the American Revolution (see Embracing the Dark Ages). The winner will then face Democrat Judy Jennings in the November general election. Here’s Jennings’ campaign website.
Brian Russell is Dunbar’s chosen successor, and Marsha Farney’s husband was a financial contributor to Obama’s Presidential campaign, so this has been an interesting contest.
There are no results available yet, but we wanted to post early so you’d have a place to check for news.
Update: For our analysis of the results, see Marsha Farney’s Victory: What Does It Mean?
