I Really Don't Understand Politics

When Len Wade stepped down from a district court bench last month in Tarrant County, everyone in Fort Worth scrambled to get involved in replacing him. Up until the next election, it's Gov. Perry's call as to who to appoint. So who does he choose? Thirty-seven year old John P. Chupp, an associate (not partner) in the small Guerrero Law Offices personal injury firm off of Hemphill Street. You google the guy and you get basically nothing. And not that it means anything, but I've never heard of him. You would think the bench would be awarded to some old time conservative Republican. I'm very confused. (For you tech boys, go the the firm's website and hover over the links to left and look where they try to take you.)
