I am in Houston to cover the mayoral runoff that is taking place today. Annise Parker is running against Gene Locke. According to the latest poll, Parker leads by 13 percent. Results will start coming in after polls close at 7 p.m. (Central Time).
The watch party this evening is taking place in downtown Houston at the George Brown Convention Center.
For the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, this has been one of the most watched races of the election cycle. If elected, Houston will become the largest city with a gay or lesbian mayor. Of the 79 candidates endorsed by Victory Fund this year, almost 60 won their races.
