Rick's people had this tightly under wraps until this morning, and yet they had an impressive array of conservative Texas groups putting out statements, some DURING the press conference. A well-oiled machine Rick's got there. A vast right-wing conspiracy for Rick? Who knew?
Thank you to the tipsters, and thanks to whoever it was that put me on that media press release distribution list, although now I am getting way too many completely junky press release emails from stupid groups I don't care about on issues that are totally irrelevant. Still, thank you. It was very sweet of you.
P.S. I've been trying to monitor Twitter traffic on Rick's decision. What do you use to follow keywords on Twitter? It's not very easy within Twitter itself.
