But other Republicans are up for grabs. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, who's facing a tough gubernatorial primary next year against the incumbent Republican governor (or president, if Texas secedes), Rick Perry, might ponder the implications of her vote in a state where Latinos make up about 20 percent of the vote and African Americans around 10 percent.
One of the sources of the very liberal Huffington Post says that Kay will vote against Sotomayor and deny her 70 votes (link)... I agree. There is no way Kay can vote for Sotomayor and expect to win a Republican primary in Texas.
