Keep Houston Press Free

Mid-Week Match-Up: And Then There Were Two

Houston is barely coming off the adrenaline rush of the mayoral election, and already it has been set careening into the non-stop thrill ride of the runoff.

You thought Annise Parker and Gene Locke brought the high-octane heat in the first round? You ain't seen nothing yet. (Probably because you weren't paying attention, and who could blame you?)

Parker and Locke now battle it out mano-a-womano without the distractions of far feebler, less electric candidates.

It is on, brosephs. And luckily, it's Wednesday, which means we can put everything in chart form to make things clear.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, 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 Houston with no paywalls.
