Current polls show that Parker has a good chance of making it into the runoff election,  to face either Peter Brown or  Gene Locke.  

(The New York Times has an interesting article about Parker’s hopes of making history in this election:http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/30/us/30houston.html?_r=2)

In one of  the many   interesting twists  in this mayoral election,  Locke is being supported by former Mayor Bob Lanier, who succeeded Whitmire as Mayor of Houston.  

According to a news release sent to 2 On The Beat by the Parker campaign,  Whitmire mingled through a well attended event  and explained why she supports Annise.    

 “I support Annise because she has the values to recognize what this city needs and fiscal responsibility which have been proven in her time as the City Controller to take this city through tough economic times,” said Whitmire.
