It's looking more likely that we'll finally get a showdown in Texas between Gov. Rick Perry and U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson in a Republican primary for governor. From the Houston Chronicle :
AUSTIN -- Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday he will seek re-election in 2010 to an unprecedented third full term in office, but some saw it as political posturing designed to keep Perry from becoming a lame duck before the next Legislature.
After Perry made the re-election statement, his spokesman was quick to add that the governor plans to run again if the Legislature does not pass his agenda next year. With a successful session, the aide said, Perry may do something else instead.
It's part of a will-they-or-won't-they game that is swirling around Perry, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst about who will be the next GOP nominee for governor.
Despite his long tenure, Perry is in a somewhat precarious position, having won reelection in 2006 with just 39% of the vote in a four-way race.
