Gosh, you sure have to read down a ways to find out her name: Lisa Fritsch. Not in the headline, not in the lead. And this is someone who's notable, because she's on television frequently, according to the article. You don't suppose the DMN was trying to avoid giving a black, conservative woman some more name recognition, do you?

It was a high-level editorial decision not to make the headline: "TV personality Lisa Fritsch announces for governor on GOP line." That's how the story was turned in, betcha.

Radio host and political commentator Lisa Fritsch announced on Tuesday that she was running for governor of Texas.

Fritsch will be challenging Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, Larry Kilgore and Mariam Martinez for the Republican nomination. Last week Democrat Wendy Davis announced her plans to run for governor as did Libertarian Kathy Glass.

Supporters gathered Tuesday morning at a north Austin restaurant. Fritsch intends to launch a grassroots campaign and promised to avoid using extreme rhetoric in order to appeal to voters who usually sit out mid-term elections.

Well, I did have it posted until I hit the preview button and it automatically said DMN must be excerpted. Her name is Lisa Fritsch. She is a regular sub on KLBJ, the Austin talk radio station. Pro life, pro 2nd amendment, anti illegal immigration, etc.

Yup, the just us bros will be in Texas next week to tell Aunt Jemima to get herself back on the plantation.

BTW, she just called into KLBJ, and I didn't recognize her voice until one of the hosts said, "I know Lisa, when you sub for me, there is little dissension here".

I don’t think she can win, but I’d hate to see her sail into the Nov election without getting roughed up a bit in the primary.

I do not think she can win either. But I do not want a nasty election either. Last time we had one we lost quite a number of our own. Henry Bonilla being one. I had worked for his campaign for awhile and liked him alot. He was not one to turn nasty ever...based on advice by a newcomer to his campaign..he took some bad advice and let the campaign turn really nasty. It was so unlike him....and he lost his seat. I was so sorry to see it happen. He was one of the good guys.

This is a Dem move,,,don’t go for it!

No. We do not want that to happen ...I think Abbott has it pretty much wrapped up.

This is very, very good news. Of course we’re all going to vote for Abbott, but bringing Lisa up in the ranks is fantastic.

She’s the real deal, I love her. She’s our anti-Michelle.

Go, Lisa, GO!

She's ok, but I didn't care for some of the attention-seeking articles she has written, such as the one bashing Palin.

She won't have the campaign funds to get near Abbott. Maybe this is just a campaign to bump up her name recognition.

Ordinarily, I’d say this is great news. In this race, not so much. I’m worried she may end up a vote splitter.

Their politics are nearly identical.

I like her too, but hope she doesn't run as a third party if she doesn't get the (R) nomination. I'd heard her on KLBJ many times and never knew she was black, until a black woman called in one morning and chewed her out, "cause you white women don't know what us blacks have been through in the past". Lisa lit into her and told her to get off the dim plantation and get a life.

Since the black vote went 95% for 0 bummer, I think she may take some away from abortion Barbie.

A lot of Texas TEA party members are minority and female.

Why doesn’t she challenge Cronyn for his US Senate seat?

OMG, OMG, OMG! Lisa Fritsch! How wonderful! I have so very much enjoyed listening to her for years! She is wonderful!

After many years of listening to her on the radio, I saw her at a rally and found out that she is black. Talk about someone who doesn't talk with an ebonics accent, so I had no clue.

But more than that, she is so VERY CONSERVATIVE.

GOOD LUCK LISA, I WILL SEND MONEY.

I like that idea a whole lot better than her possibly splitting the conservative vote in the Governor's race. Corny needs a Tea Party challenge anyway.
