Democratic Governors Association Is Betting Plenty on Bill White to Take Texas
Says The Post, sure, DGA's spending $650,000 to $700,000 on an ad campaign (put together by something called Lone Star First) intended to oust the Governor for Life is a lot of bread on a long shot -- especially when you look at California and Florida, where Dems there are at least holding their own with their GOP rivals. In most polls taken in recent weeks, Perry holds around a seven-point lead over the former Houston mayor. Says The Post: "An upset in Texas could provide an improbable sweep of the big Sunbelt states, although defeating Perry is seen as the most difficult of the three. Democratic officials believe it is worth an additional investment in White's candidacy to see how vulnerable the incumbent may be."
