In a poll released by Rice University on Thursday, Annise Parker pulled further ahead of her opponent, Gene Locke.
The Houston Chronicle reports, “A Rice University survey released Thursday and conducted Dec. 7-9, showed Parker leading with 49 percent of the vote compared to 36 percent for Locke.”
A Zogby poll released earlier in the week gave her a 5 point lead. Three other earlier polls also have given Parker the lead. She was endorsed by The Houston Chronicle.
Dallas Voice coverage of the election will continue through election night. I will be heading down to Houston in the morning and reporting live from the George Brown Convention Center with all the latest election results and pictures and quotes from the Parker election party.
