While Blogger wasn't working...the anti-gambling rally
Eileen at In the Pink Texas covered the anti-gambling rally where both Tina Benkiser and Charles Soechting showed up to say that state GOP and Dem party chairs don't want more gambling.

Andrew at BOR linked to this quote by Perry spokesman Kathy Walt: "The fact of the matter is the governor has never been a proponent of gambling." However, the AP story he links to no longer contains that quote.

If Walt said that, well...that's an outrageous claim. Perry certainly supported gambling as a means for revenue to pay for school finance.

UPDATE: While the AP article no longer contains that quote, GoogleNews has a cache of Walt's quote.
