Everyone knows that Greg Lowery is going run for District Attorney. But because of some goofy law, he couldn't file nor announce his candidacy before 1.1.08 if he wanted to keep his current gig as County Attorney for the rest of his term. But this is a little bit of a logistic nightmare. Since the DA's position is a state position, he has to file his application to appear on the ballot in Austin and today is the last day. Was Fed Ex open yesterday? Does he have to drive or fly down there? Edit: I'm sure Greg made it, but we'll be able to find out here. Edit #2: I have no idea who Clint Phillips is. And I've not heard anything about another candidate.
And despite two of the comments, he didn't file.
And in other election news, the guy that former Bridgeport resident Allen Vaught beat out for state rep in Dallas is running to get his old job back. And he refers to Allen as "an asbestos trial lawyer who has the political backing from Texas’ trial lawyer campaign machine."
