    The ONLY republicans I have ever voted for have been a very few local races, mostly judicial, and those only because the attorney nephew-in-law of a former boss recommended, with detailed descriptions, a few of the republican judges over their dem opponents. This in-law is a very hard worker in the local Democratic party and I felt I could trust his opinion on some of these candidates. Otherwise, I go with your method all the way.

    •  I would strike women from the list of (0+ / 0-)

      candidates to favor if candidates in a particular Texas race  are unknown.  Women in Texas politics can be every bit as objectionable as their male counterparts.  Remember it was a woman who sponsored, introduced and argued for the bill that set off Wendy Davis's filibuster.   Think of Texas Republican women candidates as comparable to federal Republican female politicians such as Michelle Bachmann, Marsha Blackburn or Virginia Foxx.  Don't assume because they're women they will be more fair or compassionate - or sane - than Texas candidates who are men.
