Winners from yesterday

Congratulations to Jeff Heintschel for JP and Larry Weiman for judge in the local Democratic race runoffs.

Complete local returns at the Houston Chroniclee.

I still do not understand how Mark Thompson won statewide. He has no experience in politics, no money, did not even know what a runoff was and didn't know all of what the Railroad Commissioner office did. Was this a plot to keep the office under Republican control? Except on the Internet this race had a non-existent profile.

Houston Politics blog at the Chronicle did a lot of blogging about the local voting, mainly on the GOP side.

Kuff has more on the races and some earlier results.

Incredibly pitiful turnout.
