NPT: U.S. Senate candidate Bill White visits

Politics is a 24-7-365 deal. So while El Paso’s mostly (relatively) low-key elections are around the corner, folks are gearing up for the next round. For the U.S. Senate, while there are horses in the race, nobody’s quite sure about the start time.

One candidate to take the Senate seat that apparently will be vacated by U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison when she takes on Texas Gov. Rick Perry in 2010 is Houston Mayor Bill White. He’s going to be in El Paso for a little confab with Democratic Party officials and anybody who wants to attend the gathering, which is at 5 p.m. at IBEW Union Hall at 6967 Commerce Street. At 9 a.m. tomorrow, White will be at the Ray Pearson Forum, 214 W. Franklin.

Some background reading to get up to date:

— His website. [link

— White made his intentions clear in December. [link]

— There is confusion about when the election would take place. White’s campaign has requested an opinion from the federal election commission on how to take donations under such unclear circumstances. [link]

— The investigative Website Texas Watchdog is looking into White’s calendar and correspondence with a developer. [link]
