CNN has Republican Rick Perry winning another term as governor of Texas. Democrat Chris Bell appears to be finishing second, while Kinky Friedman is languishing in fourth. I assume Kinky will take the defeat with good humor.
Written and compiled by staff writers and editors, GOVERNING View is an on-the-ground, and sometimes behind-the-scenes, look at the topics we're covering in print and online. From notes on what's up in statehouses, county courthouses and city halls, to encounters with people, places and things, GOVERNING View is a window into the side of state and local government you don't always see.
