Kay Bailey Hutchison's Fellow GOP Senators Begging Her Not to Leave D.C. Just Yet
But when will Hutchison resign from the Senate? Not sure. Because, as Politico.com reports this morning, her fellow Republican senators are begging her to stay for as long as possible, lest a special election "give Democrats a 60-seat, filibuster-resistant majority in the Senate." Says Senator Orrin Hatch, "She's a great lady, and I don't blame her if she wants to run for governor, but the fact is we'd like her not to. We'd like her to stay right here."
