"Who's keeping the score?"
Frm the Brenham Banner-Press:
Texas Attorney General candidate David Van Os was greeted by almost two dozen Democratic Party faithful upon his arrival at the Washington County Courthouse's north entrance steps about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday.
Noting he might have to double-check his county count ("This is No. 4 today!"), Van Os calculated this Brenham stop likely makes Washington County No. 80 in his determination to take his quest to unseat AG Gregg Abbott, a Republican, to all 254 Texas counties by election day.
...For instance, Van Os said during a 15-minute talk, "Average people are told they don't qualify for a car loan (or other purchase) because of their credit score" yet aren't clued in as to "who's keeping score."
Van Os says he strongly believes that -- effectively with the assistance from Republican politicians now in office -- many oil companies, insurance companies and banks/financial institutions have become "robber-barons" whose thievery it is the sworn duty of the Texas attorney general to stop.
Van Os emphasized, "Competition is virtually non-existent among the oil companies" -- making it virtually impossible for low-income people to afford to drive even 10 miles round-trip to work.
