Trouble on Perry's right flank?
The Dallas Baptist Standard reports that the Baptist General Convention of Texas' Christian Life Commission is suing over payments to a Las Vegas Law Firm.

Strayhorn and Hutchison both gave anti-gambling remarks at the Texas Republican Convention in summer 2003, and were applauded for it. Folks at the time took the criticism as a definite sign that they were thinking of taking on Perry. It will give them each an issue to try to establish a beachhead in Perry's conservative support.

However, I tend to think that while most GOP primary voters probably aren't happy with Perry's gambling stance, it doesn't rank high on their list of issues. Undocumented (or illegal, if you will) immigration isn't very popular among Republicans either, but that hasn't hurt George W. Bush's political career.
