Texas Gov. Rick Perry to run for re-election in 2010- Tell Me It Isn’t So!

Posted on 04/17/2008. Filed under: 2010 elections, Rick Perry, Texas, Texas Governor |

The Dallas Morning News posted the following story:

Gov. Rick Perry told The Dallas Morning News on Thursday that he would seek re-election as governor in 2010.

During a break in a Republican Governors Association forum being held in Grapevine, Mr. Perry said that he would like to return as governor.

Tell us: Will you vote for Gov. Perry in 2010?

When asked whether the gubernatorial field would include Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and himself, Mr. Perry responded , “I don’t know about them, but it will be Perry in 2010.”

“I don’t know about the other two. You need to ask them.”

Since winning re-election with just 39 percent of the vote in a four-way field in 2006, Mr. Perry has held out the possibility of seeking an unprecedented third four-year term. But his statement Thursday is his most definitive yet that he would do so, though much could change in the two-and-a-half years until the next gubernatorial election.

Ms. Hutchison has stopped just short of saying she would run for governor, though she has said that her decision will not be swayed by the actions of Mr. Perry or any other potential rival. Mr. Dewhurst has not announced definitive plans but has long been thought to be interested a run at the state’s top position.

Mr. Perry will soon become the longest-serving governor in Texas history. He took over for George W. Bush when Mr. Bush resigned in late 2000 to become president.

While I know we are all caught up in the 2008 elections it is never too early to start recruiting a good candidate to run for Governor in 2010. The last thing Texas can stand is another 4 years of Gov. Goodhair’s homophobia, bigotry and failed leadership.

Oh, and please remember to lock up Grandma 4 Names and Kinky the Lounge Rat. Last thing we need is these two helping 39% stay in office yet again.
