I've been hearing that Texas Senator John Carona will have a serious Democrat challenger in next year's Senate Race for District 16 (map).
The only Democrat challenger he's faced since he became senator in 1996 was the late Jan Erik Frederiksen in 2002, who pulled 34% of the vote in the general election.
John Carona has a ton of money, both personally and in the election coffers. Running as a Democrat in a district that includes the Park Cities and most of North Dallas will be a challenge for anyone, so I remain skeptical. Drop me a line or post a comment if you know of any rumored challengers to the throne.
