Alvarado off the ballot?

Breaking news: Felix Alvarado is apparently off the ballot for the March Democratic primary.

His check bounced.

If Alvarado is out of the race, the chances of a run-off go way down, which means that Friedman and Strayhorn are likely to have an extra month to gather signatures for their petition.

UPDATE: There have been several comments attacking and defending Alvarado in a very personal manner. Since Alvarado isn't even a candidate anymore, I'm going to delete those comments and any future comments on the subject.

It is a sad event that led Alvarado to be taken off the ballot. He continues to be a much better man than Perry. Personally knowing Perry and the type of man he is, it's pathetic to know this man is our state leader.

You've earned my respect Evan. Politics already has negativity in its name. Why make it worse?

Texans need to know that although we have lost Alvarado as a Hispanic candidate, we still have his sister Maria running for Lieutinent Governor.

As a Hispanic myself, I will remain faithful and loyal to my culture and my people. Texas is about being properly represented and I believe Maria Alvarado can do just that.

Who is Alvarado who was supposedly running for Governor? Never heard of him, from him, and our local papers never carried anything about anything running for governor? What gives, and what is his sister running for? Never heard about her either. Thanks
