Source: AG Abbott tells donors he'll run for governor

There is a strong indication Thursday that state's top lawyer has set his sights upon the Texas Governor's Mansion.

A source who has spoken with Republican donors says Attorney General Greg Abbott is saying he'll run for governor next year, challenging Rick Perry. With the 83rd Texas Legislative Session underway this week, Gov. Perry says he's focused on state business not re-election.

"I'll make my decision about what I'm going to do at the appropriate time, which will be June, July of this year," he said.

But until then, he can't raise any money.

2. I would love to watch a primary fight between Goodhair and Greg

I was at the same law firm as Greg Abbott back in the 1980s and I know that he can fight dirty. A primary between Goodhair and Abbott would be fun to watch
