Parker leads the pack of candidates at 34 percent, with former city attorney Ben Hall at 14 percent.
Ouch. That is going to be hard to overcome even with $2M of your own money. Of course Ben Hall's campaign has put on a happy face while watching Hall parade around in his new invisible suit:
As Houstonians are beginning to see the vision Ben Hall has set forth, they are rallying behind his ideas for the city’s future. The grassroots momentum that we see supporting Ben’s candidacy is growing and will secure his election as Mayor.”
You can't blame Hall's campaign for trying to make lemonade from a bunch of rocks. That is what they are paid to do and Hall has plenty of money for them to do just that. I'm not sure who has seen Hall's vision and who is "rallying" but it obviously is not working.
On the other hand, the "Republican (teabagger) Candidate for Mayor", Eric Dick, has been left out of the polls. He probably thinks he has the remaining 48% of those undecided voters. Dude, put some clothes on!
