Friends and family passed
along this statement
Longtime political advisor
and commentator Harold Cook died suddenly at his “Western Headquarters”
Not surprisingly, made it
to one last election day.
Harold’s first political
job was serving as an aide to State Representative Debra Danburg. He
went on working closely with Land Commissioner Garry Mauro, Texas
Secretary of State John Hannah Jr., and dozens of other elected
officials and organizations.
Notably, Harold managed
the 11 Democratic state senators who broke quorum in 2003 and held out for 46
days in Albuquerque.
Harold later became a
featured commentator on Time Warner’s Capitol Tonight, often providing
astute observations with an acidic wit.
Harold Lee Cook was born
January 16, 1961 in Houston. He is survived by his
beloved sister Martha Payne and his loyal dog Travis.
