The 2008 Voting Charts: The Harris County DA Race

For the first time in a long time, Harris County voters actually have a choice in this year's District Attorney race, in terms of candidates who have a shot at winning.

Unfortunately, it's not the most awe-inspiring choice of all time.

Democrat C.O. Bradford used to be Houston police chief, where he's remembered mostly for a series of mishaps with evidence and the crime lab. Republican Pat Lykos used to be a criminal judge (and HPD officer, she'll be quick to remind you), where she's mostly remembered for having an autocratic style that left many lawyers fuming.

So what's not to like?
