2008 Candidates Filed

(With web sites, if known at this time.)


U.S. President:
Bill Richardson
Chris Dodd
John Edwards
Hillary Clinton
Barack Obama
Joe Biden

[NOTE: Neither Dennis Kucinich nor Mike Gravel qualified for the Texas primary ballot.]

U.S. Senator:
Richard J. (Rick) Noriega
Ray McMurrey
Gene Kelly
Rhett R. Smith

[NOTE: Kelly, as always, will have no site and do absolutely nothing to campaign, counting on his false name-ID to carry him to a runoff and a possible nominatiion. If he wins that, as he has before, he will still do nothing whatsoever.

According to Smith's YouTube page, he is also running for President, but as a Republican, judging from his lawsuit against that party and the media because he says they "have allowed only Zionistic campaigns" any coverage; he also ran in the 2006 primary for Governor as a Republican.]

Texas Railroad Commissioner:
Dale Henry
Art Hall
Mark Thompson

Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice:
Jim Jordan

[No site yet, but his announcement is here.]

Texas Supreme Court, Place 7:
Sam Houston
Baltasar D. Cruz

[Cruz lost a race in the 2006 primary against an incumbent Democratic Judge. While as of today he hasn't posted on his campaign site since June 17, he has posted several later entries on his own blog denouncing the Judge he lost to.]

Texas Supreme Court, Place 8:
Susan Criss
Linda Yanez

[The Criss campaign pointed to some errors in the petition which Yanez had to file to get on the primary ballot. The Yanez campaign says they've fixed it. The state party chair will have to rule, and this question may still end up in court.]
