With the primary elections over, it’s time to ramp up for general election happening on November 6th, 2012. One of the hotly contest races in the North-Eastern Dallas County area is for US Congressional district 32 for US House of Representatives. Here are the basics that you need to know about each candidate:
is the Democrat candidate in the race. According to her web-site, she supports “ObamaCare”
, has been employed by a number of government bureaucracies as a lawyer, and has been involved with a number of political organizations were she “had an opportunity to learn a great deal about the inner workings of Congress”; of which she also says “a dysfunctional Congress does not serve our interests or the common good.” Can such an obvious “Washington DC” insider
really change the underlying issues with the current government’s bloated and dysfunctional structure; especially when she supports overreaching government programs like ObamaCare?
Edit (10/1/2012): the below three candidates did not achieve ballot access.
Eric S. Smith
is a disabled vet, who in a recent blog post said he had dropped out of the race. He does mention that, “The current congressional approval rating, at least on this site
, is 14%. So at least 86% of you should be voting for anybody else this election.”
Emma Elizabeth Berry
is certainly an interesting independent candidate who claims to know how to win the race with very little resources
. She seems to be interested in only one topic: “job creation”. An idea that all of the party affiliated candidates is certainly going to claim to also support. According to her web-site
she is actively working on projects to stimulate job growth in the Garland, Texas area. Certainly running a campaign will help her garner some attention, but one is becoming a congresswoman really the best way for her to continue her efforts?
