Follow the money: 77005
Paul Burka (and contributors) have a series running over at BurkaBlog detailing the 08 Texas presidential donors. I'm going to add to it.
Mimi Swartz covers Houston zip codes 77002 (main downtown), 77019 (River Oaks), 77006 (Montrose, area south of east part of River Oaks) and 77027 (north of 59, east of 610, west of Greenway plaza, south of bayou. yes, that's the best description of it I can come up with).
Let me add some ZIP codes worthy of mentioning: 77005 (West University, Rice, Southampton. Has been the biggest Dem donor ZIP code in the state in some recent cycles), 77024 (Memorial), 77056 (Galleria), 77057 (Tanglewood), 77010 (other downtown), 77046 (Greenway Plaza), 77401 (Bellaire), 77079 (farther west Memorial; Energy Corridor).
