The Tuesday, May 22, 2018 Democratic Party Primary Runoff Between Marilyn Burgess and Rozzy Shorter Should be Close says Taylor


In the race for District Clerk for Harris County, Texas, Marilyn Burgess and Roslyn “Rozzy” Shorter are set to face off for the Democratic nomination on Tuesday, May 22, 2018.



A few of the Democratic Party Primary and Republican Party Primary Election Candidates Have Some Unfinished Business to Attend to on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, in Harris County

ANALYSIS BY AUBREY R. TAYLOR

There’s a lot of talk about Texas being a red state floating around. Sure, traditionally that has been the case. But after the historic showing put on display by Texas Democrats on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, reasonable minds would have to agree that the aforementioned distinction could possibly be on the verge of becoming a hue of a different shade in the very near future – if Democrats have anything to say about it in the fall. But Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the day when Democratic hopefuls and Republican hopefuls are set to face off is still a little way’s off. Before we get there, we must first take care of a little unfinished inter-party business. So, let’s not forget about Tuesday, May 22, 2018 a day when Democrats and Republicans who failed to capture a majority of the vote back on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, must square off once more against their fellow inter-party rival in hopes of earning the “HIGHLY COVETED DISTINCTION” of “PARTY NOMINEE” for the Tuesday, November 6, 2018, Midterm Election!

IMPORTANT RUNOFF ELECTION DATES

In case you don’t know, Monday, April 23, 2018, is the last day to register to vote in the Tuesday, May 22, 2018, Runoff Election in Texas. The first day of early voting is on Monday, May 14, 2018; and the last day to vote early in the Runoff Election is on Friday, May 18, 2018 – so don’t forget to vote early.
