KAY BAILEY IS BUSY RALLYING THE TROOPS!


SHE’S SNATCHING UP SOME OF GOVERNOR RICK PERRY’S SUPPORTERS!

U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison met with some 300 supporters at a private strategy session Saturday for her 2010 run for Texas governor against incumbent Rick Perry, a fellow Republican who courted anti-abortion activists a few blocks away. Hutchison said her meeting was the first for her statewide campaign organization. It included members of Congress, local politicians and big-name business people and political donors. She introduced the group’s leaders as “people who are going to help me in my quest to be governor of Texas.” Among her supporters and organizers are prominent attorney Pat Oxford and former Perry supporter and businessman John Nau, both of Houston; former Education Secretary Rod Paige, who served in
President George W. Bush’s administration; and retired baseball star Nolan Ryan and football star Roger Staubach.
