Transcript V. AUGUST 18. 19B9 Governor to set special election date State law allows Gov. Bill Clements to schedule a special elec- tion for the late Mickey Leland's constituents to pick a successor to the Houston Democrat's congres- : sional seat, of which Montrose is a The governor could set the elec- ■ tion for Nov. 7, which would coincide with the Houston mayoral election, a eontest already centered on attempts by Mayor Kathy ' Whitmire and challenger Fred Hofheinz to garner minority sup- If Clements decides an emergency exists, he could set a date for an emergency election, which probably would be slated on a Tuesday . or Saturday between mid-September and early October. Leland, 44, chairman of the ■ House Select Committee on Hunger, and 15 others were en route to a refugee camp to deliver food supplies and check the efficiency of food distribution when their chartered plane disappeared Mon day. U.S. helicopters found the wreckage Sunday in a remote region of Ethiopia, where it had crashed into the side of a mountain and burned. The State Department said there was no chance anyone could have sur- Both Democrats and Republicans will run in the special election, and the winner will serve the remainder of Leland's term, which continues through 1990. Political observers expect the race to be crowded with prominent black politicians. '"Mickey was a pioneer and a leader. We could use another leader." political consultant Bill Ramsey said Sunday.

A leader is not someone who sways with political Ramsey predicted political shake-ups because of the vacancy .nal Demographics give black Democrats an edge in the inner-city district represented by Leland since 1978- That district is estimated to be 40 percent to 50 percent black, Montrose is also part of the district. Most observers believe Leland's successor will be a black already serving in public office although a race by a high-visibility Hispanic or white cannot be ruled out. If a black already in public office succeeds Leland, roles could shift throughout the black political community and new faces could emerge at lower levels, some observers said. "To me, Congress is the major leagues, and it's hard for someone to plug in unless he's worked his way up in the minors" said Richard Murray, a political science professor at the University of Hous- Political consultant George Strong predicted no lack of candi- "The list of people who might want to run for Congress is endless in that seat," Strong said. A name often mentioned as a leading candidate is City Councilman Rodney Ellis, a friend and former congressional aide to Leland. "You have to say he's the odds- on favorite to be the appointed one" said Robert Stein, a professor of political science at Rice University. Besides Ellis, those mentioned most prominently as possible candidates are Harris County Commissioner El Franco Lee, state Rep. Ron Wilson and City Councilman Anthony Hall, although Hall has shown a strong interest in running for mayor. State Sen. Craig Washington also has been suggested as a candidate but he reportedly has said he has no interest in the seat. We cover the News of Montrose The Montrose Voice Our classifieds are growing.
