Democratic poll shows neck-and-neck race brewing in Florida House district

An internal poll shows a tight race brewing in Florida’s 16th Congressional District between Democratic state Rep. Margaret Good and seven-term Rep. Vern BuchananVernon Gale BuchananMORE (R).

The internal poll from Good’s campaign, which was obtained exclusively by The Hill, shows Buchanan with a 48-45 advantage over Good among likely voters, a difference that falls within the survey’s margin of error. Another 7 percent remain undecided.

Good has a 47-41 lead among independents, and the two contenders are deadlocked at 47 percent support among seniors.

The result is a marginal improvement from another internal poll conducted last month, which showed Buchanan with a 6-point advantage.

Buchanan’s favorability rating is even with 43 percent of voters saying they have a favorable view of him and 43 percent saying they have an unfavorable view. Thirty-nine percent of voters rate Good favorably, while 33 percent view her unfavorably. Twenty-eight percent of voters

Editorial: We recommend Shawn Thierry in Texas House District 146

Two years ago, we recommended voters give state Rep. Shawn Thierry a second term representing House District 146 based on a strong freshman performance. They did so, overwhelmingly, and she delivered.

This year, having won her Democratic primary with 67 percent of the vote and again with no Republican opponent in the race, it’s an easy call to recommend voters retain her for a third term.

Thierry, 51, has been an engaged and effective voice for her constituents, roughly three-fourths of whom are Black or Hispanic.

A good example came in April, when she became alarmed at the way Black Texans and other people of color were dying at rates hugely disproportionate to their population numbers. She announced in a press conference she was writing a letter to Gov. Greg Abbott urging him to appoint a task force charged with explaining the disparate impacts of the deadly virus. By the

Editorial: We recommend Hubert Vo in Texas House District 149

Ever since a politically unknown Vietnamese American businessman snatched Texas House District 149 from a powerful Republican budget chief in 2004, the GOP has been trying to win it back.

The soft-spoken Hubert Vo, 64, has managed to hold on to his diverse district in southwest Houston that includes Alief and Katy by focusing on local issues affecting education and small business rather than headline-grabbing social battles.

“I’m not a guy at the front mic all the time,” he told the editorial board. “I want to do some research and carry bills that make sense for the constituents and for the district.”

Yet, this time, Vo’s stance on a particularly contentious social issue is one thing that drew his Republican opposition.

Lily Truong, an education consultant in her second term on the school board, said she’s disappointed with Vo’s support of Black Lives Matter, which she associates with Marxism.
