& Elections magazine, which showcased Capitol Inside in a feature
story a month before our first birthday. And we've been extremely proud
to have the lion's share of state legislators, statewide leaders, lobbyists,
campaign consultants, state party officials, prominent activists, political
journalists and others with a stake inside the Capitol beltway as loyal
subscribers who want access to maximum information to keep their competitive
edge. Our subscribers can be found at opposite ends of the political
spectrum and all points in between. Republicans and Democrats appreciate
our commitment to fairness and objectivity and political coverage that

the people in Texas politics who want to excel at one of the roughest

their power stock rise and soar in countless cases. Most of those who
haven't subscribed are no longer around. We're saying that because we
want your business - and because it's true. Ask anyone who's been around
