Looks like Nolan Ryan hitched his team to a rickety wagon. No…not the Texas Rangers. (Well, ok, the Texas Rangers too, but that’s a different story.)
I’m talking about the Texas governor’s race. Ryan backed Fort Worth’s own U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison against longtime king-o-the-world Gov. Rick Perry in the race for the Republican gubernatorial nomination.
Here’s his TV commercial praising her Kayness:
But a new poll shows Perry increasing his lead over Hutchison with a month before the primary, and longshot candidate Debra Medina making a surprising surge.
It’s hard not to root for Medina. She’s variously described as a small business owner, activist, registered nurse, and “spoiler.” Best of all she’s an outsider compared to the usual career politicians that become too slick for their own good — or, more importantly, for our own good.
