The Hutchison for governor campaign is touting an endorsement today from U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Lewisville. Burgess joined the senator this morning on the Mark Davis show on WBAP to "announce" his support.
Hmmm. Seems like I read that somewhere a couple weeks ago.
Oh yeah, here is it.
Davis asked if she might stay in her seat until the end of the year.
"I can’t say anything right now because I don’t know," Hutchison said. "Every day in W

Davis pushed further, asking if she might stay in the Senate through next year's March primary.
"Well, a lot of people are suggesting that," Hutchison said. "That’s not what I want to do. That’s not what I intend to do but...right now I want to just see what comes next. When is healthcare finished? I want to stay and fight with every bone in my body against the government takeover of healthcare."
Hutchison announced in July, also on Davis' show, that she would step down from her Senate seat sometime in October or November in order to devote herself to her campaign for governor.
Hutchison told Davis today it "bothers" her how many public officials' political plans are up in the air while they wait for her to step down.
Afterward, Davis told his listeners he was skeptical Hutchison would let go of her seat before year's end.
"I think that October/November time frame is gone," Davis said.
