Republican Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison's Bid for Governor of Texas

NACOGDOCHES, Texas, Jan. 16 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today it was reported that the Senior U.S. Senator from Texas, Kay Bailey Hutchison, has transferred almost 8 million dollars from her Senate campaign account into her State campaign account. Effectively this is a one way transfer as State Campaign money can not be transferred back, sending serious signals to all that she means to challenge incumbent Governor Rick Perry in the Republican Primary in what will doubtless be the most expensive primary race in Texas history.

In response Dr. Rick Scarborough offers the following statement:

"As a Texas conservative I am appalled by this action and call upon Senator Hutchison to do the ethically and morally right thing by writing everyone who contributed to her national campaign and offering to refund their contribution. Conservatives in Texas and around the country contributed to Senator Hutchison's campaign to fight liberals in Washington; not conservatives in Texas.

"Rick Perry has his detractors in Texas and I have been openly critical of some of his positions as Governor, but he is solidly pro-life and pro-family and Texas has prospered under his able leadership. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, who is pro-choice, is apparently willing to expose her own Party in Washington to a possible filibuster proof Democratic majority by vacating her seat as US Senator, while simultaneously dividing her Party in Texas with a costly and politically divisive bid to be Governor which is not warranted."
