Wow! Early vote for president is tight race in Texas!
Tue November 4, 2008 8:10 pm

Early votes statewide
McCain 1.71 million 51.98%
Obama 1.56 million 47.39%

Dallas County early vote
McCain 202,246 39.41%
Obama 305,501 60.13%

Harris County early vote
McCain 335,028 46.12
Obama 387,489 53.34

Actually, I think the Harris County numbers are good news for Republicans, as bad news goes. They didn’t get blown away by the black vote. This gives R downballot candidates some hope. I’m going to look at some rural counties next.

McCain extends his lead in the statewide early vote to 6 points.
