EARLY VOTING STARTS TODAY; VOTE THE PARTY OF MEDICINE
After numerous delays, the 2012 party primary elections are here. Early voting for the May 29 election starts today and runs through Friday, May 25. In 2013, the U.S. Congress and Texas Legislature will have many opportunities to make things better — or worse — for you and your patients. Look for a customized email today listing the TEXPAC-endorsed candidates who will be on your ballot. Today I want to remind you of the nine TMA and TMA Alliance members running for Congress and the Texas Legislature: U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, MD (R-Lewisville), the only TMA member in Congress, is running for reelection. So are State Sen. Bob Deuell, MD (R-Greenville) and State Reps. Susan King (R-Abilene) and John Zerwas, MD (R-Simonton). Looking to move up to the Texas Senate are State Reps. Charles Schwertner, MD (R-Georgetown) and Mark Shelton, MD (R-Fort Worth). Dennis Bonnen, MD (R-Friendswood); Sonal Bhuchar (R-Sugar Land); and Susan Todd (R-Fort Worth) are seeking their first elections to the Texas House. Good luck.
