The church conservative political clique is winning. But there's a way to slow down special-interest committees and other groups.

Voters overwhelmingly elected Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker to a second term. Only 42,245 people voted in Fort Worth鈥檚 mayoral election, according to unofficial results from Tarrant, Denton and Parker counties. More people show up to a sold-out TCU football game than vote in city of Fort Worth elections, Emily Farris, associate professor of political science, said. She attributed the low number to the election being in May, the lack of a competitive mayoral race, and the lack of partisan party identification. 鈥淧artisan identity is a shortcut that voters use to know which candidate to support,鈥 Farris said. 鈥淚n low-information elections, like city council, the lack of a partisan cue really raises the required effort of a voter to understand the candidates.鈥
