And White looks like he has a great chance to unseat Perry. However, it didn't have to be that way. Had Republicans picked Hutchinson in the primary, this would not even be a contest. As bad as it looks having a Democratic governor in Texas, the thought of Perry is even worse, even among Conservatives.

The bad news? You may be looking at a Democratic governor in Texas.

The bad news? Perry may be history, but there is a silver lining. Whoever runs against White in the following election will surely be a Conservative, not a Democrat like White, nor a Communist like Perry.

Article is here.

Edit on my first post. The second "The bad news" should be "the good news". LOL.

It should be an interesting test of how much is anti-incumbent and how much is pro-conservative
