June Is Big Month For Judicial Campaign Receptions
In 2010 dozens of Democratic Judges in Dallas County will be seeking reelection. More Democrats will be seeking to replace the few remaining Republican Judges up that year -- though it looks like none of them may be seeking another term, seeing the political handwriting on the wall after the Democratic sweep in 2006. And some of our Democratic incumbents may even face primary challenges themselves. All of these candidates, even those with no opponents, will have to submit petitions with the signatures of hundreds of voters to get on the primary ballot. On June 2 a petition signing party and candidate forum will be held at 5:30 at Poor David's Pub, 1313 S. Lamar Street in Dallas. This will no doubt be only the first of many such opportunities to sign for candidates between now and the filing deadline at the end of this year.
While many of these candidates have already been out seeking signatures, June will see a huge burst of campaign kickoffs, receptions, and fundraisers for incumbents and new office seekers. So far, it looks like there will be at least twenty such events next month, starting with Judge Jeanine Howard's on June 9. We've only listed the first few in the DCDP's weekly email Roundup, not including at least a couple that still haven't confirmed a location. We'll add more as the dates approach and details are forthcoming. For a look at the delightfully large list up till now, go to the party website and look at the Calendar for June at this page.
