That's right. Wanna know why Johnny Gomez thinks he's got a shot against incumbent Gary Fitzsimmons? Or why lawyer Clay Jenkins has been anointed by nearly every Dallas politico (including Fitzsimmons) as Jim Foster's replacement? If so, the Preston Hollow Democrats (which are in desperate need of a Web site update) are feeding the candidates to the audience this evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at PoPoLos after each one is given a couple minutes to introduce themselves.

"And then we'll go through a list of about 21 different races and give our endorsements in those races," says Roger Grape, president of the Preston Hollow Dems.

He says the three county judge candidates -- Jenkins, Foster and Larry Duncan -- have confirmed that they'll be in attendance, along with Fitzsimmons. But what about Fitzsimmons's opponent?

"I'm not sure who decided to run against him," Grape tells Unfair Park. "I forgot the gentleman's name."

I guess we won't hold our breaths for an upset endorsement headed Gomez's way.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
