Texas Governor's Race: The Fun Is Beginning

As you've no doubt heard, Kay Bailey Hutchison yesterday took the first steps to enter what would be a highly, highly entertaining GOP primary for the governorship next year (Just think of the hair-care budgets alone between her and Rick Perry).

What about the not-so-boy wonder from Houston, Mayor Bill White? Is the term-limited hizzoner going to run for governor or for the Senate?

We'll find out next week, White told Channel 13's Miya Shay.

"Those are two things that I've been weighing," White told Shay.  "Sometimes I want to get back to private business, but more likely than not, I want to continue to serve people around here..and throughout the state."

White's path to the governorship would be tough, but having Perry and Hutchison tear each other apart in a highly funded and no-doubt bitter primary campaign would obviously be a good first step.

And White's hair-care budget would obviously be a lot lower than that of the Republican candidates.

The Texas political world waits for next week....
