Hutchison: Ill declare for governor this summer
Several hundred Texans filled a hotel conference room in downtown Austin today in anticipation of Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, challenging Gov. Rick Perry in the March 2010 GOP primary.
(snip)

On issues over which they could tussle, she said shes comfortable with her record on abortion issues and said that shed be happy to debate Perry over her initial vote for a bailout/rescue of Wall Street; at the time, Perry said he opposed the move.

She revisited her desire for Texas to have more top-tier universities. She said Rice University should have incentives and support to increase its capacity, presumably meaning greater student enrollment.

Hutchison said: "People are looking for positive, happy warriors. And Im a positive happy warrior."


Positive happy warrior? :wtf:

Hutchison meets campaign supporters in Austin

By KELLEY SHANNON
AP Political Writer

AUSTIN U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison met with some 300 supporters at a private strategy session Saturday for her 2010 run for Texas governor against incumbent Rick Perry, a fellow Republican who courted anti-abortion activists a few blocks away.

Hutchison said her meeting was the first for her statewide campaign organization. It included members of Congress, local politicians and big-name business people and political donors. She introduced the group's leaders as "people who are going to help me in my quest to be governor of Texas."

Among her supporters and organizers are prominent attorney Pat Oxford and former Perry supporter and businessman John Nau, both of Houston; former Education Secretary Rod Paige, who served in President George W. Bush's administration; and retired baseball star Nolan Ryan and football star Roger Staubach.


It was a bigger news day for Kay than Perry.

2. Kay Bailout Hutchison
That's what one of Perry's people called her. If that's any indication of what lies ahead, well, Molly Ivins is in heaven already smiling at the thought. And making a bet with Ann Richards on how long it will take for the "positive happy warrior" to turn into the negative screaming banshee those of us who know her know her to be.

8. Well we won't tell Buffy Kay they're fake
She's kind of fake herself anyway.

I like that "Kay Buffy" nom de guerre! - I can totally believe that someone would name their child Kay Buffy.
