Hutchison Leads Perry in New Poll
Get ready for Bloodbath '06 ...
a new poll has Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison leading Governor Rick Perry in a hypothetical matchup in the 2006 Republican governor primary by an amazing 59.5% to 31.6%. But there is some good news for Governor Goodhair: he leads both Comptroller Carol Strayhorn and former Bush Yes Man (I mean Sec of Commerce) Don Evans. He leads Strayhorn 56 to 29.7 and Evans 59.3 to 19.6.
Personally, I am surprised Evans is doing as well as he is with such low name i.d. I expect Perry to be challenged for sure, and it could be by all three of them, though that would be close to insanity.
Now, if we could only find a Democratic candidate ... (no, I'm not looking at you, Mr. Sanchez ... )
