With Medina in runoff, who would Hutchison support?Submitted by McClarinJ on Fri, 02/26/2010 - 15:29
Suppose the droves of new voters who are turning out for the Texas GOP primary turn out to be Medina supporters and she, not Kay Bailey Hutchison, makes it into a runoff with Gov. Rick Perry. Would Senator Hutchison
a. Remain neutral till after the runoff election?
b. Endorse the governor on behalf of the behind-the-scenes power-brokers?
c. Stick it to Perry by endorsing Medina?
d. Immediately endorse Democrat Bill White?
Serious campaign analysts ask these types of questions and try to position their candidate to take advantage of developments. You can bet the Perry campaign is thinking along these lines considering both possible outcomes: "What can we do to pick up Medina voters if Hutchison tops Medina and vice-versa?"
What should Debra do to pick up Hutchison voters if she tops Hutchison Mar. 2?
