Off the Kuff is a political blog based in Houston mainly covering state and local affairs.[1] Founded in 2001 by Charles Kuffner, it is the oldest continuously run political blog in the State in Texas,[2] and has gained tremendous support throughout the State for its detailed political reporting and commentating. Posts are predominantly written from a liberal point of view, but are often admired from both sides of the aisle.

Selected works from Off the Kuff have been syndicated in the Houston Chronicle,[3] and the blog has been featured prominently in both the Houston Press[4] and Texas Monthly.[5]

The blog is a key member of the Texas Progressive Alliance, an organization of liberal blogs in the State that include Burnt Orange Report and Texpatriate.
