What's funny is that most Texas Democrats probably don't even realize they had the opportunity to get a good recruit to run against Republican Pete Sessions.
How do we know this way down here in San Antonio?
A couple of months ago a friend of ours happened to be on a flight with a Dallas County Judge. They got to talking about the district and Jane Doe seemed to have researched the district...talking about the demographics of the district...that redistricting had made it a little more competitive for a Democrat...the problems going on with the country...the bad job Sessions is doing, etc.
Our friend then made the suggestion, "Why don't you run?"
As it was told to us, Jane Doe seemed to give the idea serious consideration and didn't say no, she just hadn't been approached by any of the movers and shakers about it.
Who was Jane Doe? Judge Sally Montgomery.
