Ohhh, the irony…Here’s a headline from today’s Dallas Morning News:
“Crawford mayor is no fan of town’s best-known resident: Kerry supporter says Bush hasn’t delivered on promises”

Isn’t that beautiful? Here’s more, since you have to subscribe to the website in order to read it…

Mr. Campbell, a Democrat who has been mayor since 1999, said he’s met Mr. Bush once but doesn’t feel inclined to support the former Texas governor. He voted for Al Gore in 2000.

“I would say the city has a mix of Bush and Kerry supporters,” he said. “The Kerry supporters feel like Bush has not delivered on his promises.”

Some Texas Republicans took the endorsement in stride.

“You will find a few Kerry supporters in Texas,” said Victor Carrillo, chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission. “But the majority of Texans support President Bush.”

Mr. Campbell says he’s not worried about a backlash among constituents.

“I have the right to vote for who I want to be president,” he said. “If some people around here don’t like it, they can vote for someone else for mayor.”

  1. Heh. Imagine that, a black democrat decides not to vote for Bush. And Crawford, TX no less. Bush was never all THAT popular there.
