Perry hunting for endorsements?
The rumors appear to be true: the Perry campaign is out looking for officeholders to endorse the governor. The Houston Chronicle reports:
Gov. Rick Perry reportedly has been seeking support from other top elected Republican officials for his 2006 re-election race, apparently trying to defuse potential opposition in his party's primary. U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and state Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn are considering running against Perry for the GOP gubernatorial nomination.
But then, you have to wonder why they haven't asked Jerry Patterson?
Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson said he hadn't been contacted by the governor's office about a formal endorsement but said he plans to back Perry's re-election. He said the Texas GOP had a "good team" in place and officials should keep it that way. Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst has said in the past that he also plans to support Perry for another term.
