Rick just keeps announcing more and more Kay supporters that are now behind him...

Bill White's game plan had to be to win all the Democrats and a large portion of Republicans. So far I am not seeing any evidence that the Kay peeps are heading over to Bill White in any kind of large numbers, and now Rick has announced a whole slew of new peeps from Kay's team now on his campaign finance team (link). Excerpt follows...

Former University of Texas regent Bob Rowling, whose support for U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison sparked one of the bitter skirmishes of the GOP primary battle, is one of the statewide campaign chairmen announced today by Gov. Rick Perry.

Perry had appointed Rowling to the board of regents, but the Irving businessman supported Hutchison for governor. Rowling then resigned from the board of regents after criticism by state senators over a $1 million bonus to the top higher education investment official. A letter from Perry and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst had brought the bonus issue to the forefront, and Hutchison accused the GOP incumbent of playing politics to embarrass Rowling.

Rowling said after the primary that he'd support Perry, and his newest position cements his return to the Perry camp in a prominent role.

Here's Perry's press release:

Texans for Rick Perry today announced its statewide leadership team, which includes more than 125 supporters from across the state who are working together to re-elect Gov. Perry.

"Because of a shared belief in the conservative values that have fortified a solid foundation for our state, we have built the most effective leadership team our state has ever seen," said Gov. Perry. "I am thankful for the commitment of these individuals to share my vision for Texas' future and uphold the positive momentum that our state has achieved through our dedication to principles of limited government, low taxes and individual freedom."

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.
