Press anticipate post-Labor Day election rhetoric

Labor Day traditionally is the start of the high-octane election season. It’s less than 60 says until the Nov. 2 elections. Summer is over and candidates think voters are ready to start listening to their electioneering.

Today didn’t start with political ads, but with numerous articles and TV hype about the expected ads to come.  However, if you as a voter are expecting to learn about the important issues to be considered for this election, you’re likely to be disappointed. About the only thing you are going to hear, according to Harvey Kronberg of The Quorum Report, is all the bad things about opponents.  And those things don’t even have to be true. Check out Harvey’s take on News 8 Austin.
