Heflin's Decision
By Marc Campos

Next Monday is the deadline for State Representative Talmadge Heflin to request a recount. Yesterday, the state certified that challenger Hubert Vo won the race by 32 votes.

Heflin ought to do everyone a favor and call it a day. He had the power, the position, and the money, and he still could not pull it off. If he requests a recount, tries to contest the election in court, or takes it to the Texas House, it will look like he is trying to steal the election. It will be a PR nightmare. It is not worth it and it is a sure bet he would lose in 2006.

Talmadge, do the right thing and call Vo and congratulate him.
