Is Kay conservative enough for Republican primary voters in Texas?

Is Kay conservative enough? Can she win over GOP primary voters in Texas?

Probably not once they are reminded of her shoddy vote history (link). Excerpt follows...
"My position is I think there can be an ability for a woman, until viability, to make a choice," Hutchison said. A year earlier, Hutchison expressed the same sentiment in a non-binding Senate vote in support of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 court decision that made abortion legal. The resolution stated that Roe v. Wade "secures an important constitutional right" to the procedure and that it should not be overturned.

For some conservative activists, it was an unpardonable act of defiance that drew support from only nine Republican senators. (Five of those seats are now held by Democrats).

"The vote on Roe v. Wade to me seemed like that she was showing her true colors. She's never renounced that vote," said Joe Pojman, a Perry supporter and director of the anti-abortion group Texas Alliance for Life.
I just don't see how Kay can overcome her pro choice votes... this is not 2006 or 2008, and it is not Massachusetts we are talking about here...

I think Kay's list of non conservative sins goes well beyond her wishy washy abortion record.

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
