"Does Kay still matter?"Submitted by ron_paul_is_awesome on Sun, 01/31/2010 - 18:40
That is the question some are starting to ask in Texas. This journalist poses the question in an article published yesterday for D Magazine:
"Medina was right about performing strongly in the statewide debate – she outdid Hutchison, for sure"
"by the time the evening was over the increasingly formidable Medina – surprisingly and against all odds – seemed a threat to overtake Kay."
"Now – as each candidate vies for 51 percent of the March 2 vote to avoid a runoff – the question is which picture GOP voters will prefer: Debra the Cassandra, or Rick the cheerleader-in-chief. Many will wonder whether Hutchison still matters."
Also, an independent blogger that covers the race pretty extensively is asking the same question and wondering whether to change the name of the blog from "Rick vs. Kay" to "Rick vs. Debra":
"Should I change the name of this blog to Rick vs. Debra?"
"Is Kay even still relevant? Will she slip behind Medina in the polls after her lackluster performance in the second debate?"
Another news outlet questioned after the debate whether Debra will be the one in a run-off with Rick Perry instead of Kay Bailey as has been the popular assumption up to this point.
"the big question is: will it be a run-off that features Ms. Medina or will it be a run-off between Governor Perry and Senator Hutchison?"
It is becoming increasingly apparent to many that Debra is the real deal and that she is a threat to the establishment career politicians that the people are sick and tired of.
