CORPUS CHRISTI Hutchison plans to run for governor in 2010
The Austin and Republican rumor mills have been in overdrive for months about Gov. Rick Perry's future political plans.
U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison is planning to run for governor in 2010, her spokesman Matt Mackowiak said while he was in town Wednesday. If she resigns her Senate seat to devote her efforts to the governor's race, Perry would name her successor.
Mentioned as the top front-runners are Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst (who also has indicated that he plans to run for governor), former Secretary of State Roger Williams, Texas Railroad Commission Chairman Michael Williams and, if he so chooses, Perry himself.
During a fundraiser at Jerry and Glenda Kane's Hewit Drive home Wednesday night, Perry addressed the rumors that he wants to move up from the state Capitol to the U.S. Capitol.
"I don't want to go to Washington, D.C., in any form or fashion and I won't," he said.
Talking about his objectives for 2009, the governor left the door open to running for re-election. There are no gubernatorial term limits in Texas.
"I have a lot of things I want to get done during the next session," the governor said. "If I get those things done I may ride off into the sunset. But if I don't I'll run for re-election."
