     Texas Two-Step: Someone has got to explain to me the attractiveness of Texas's agriculture. In the last month two Democratic candidates have announced that they were putting aside their gubernatorial ambitions and would instead run for State Agriculture Commissioner. This week, humorist and 2006 independent gubernatorial candidate Kinky Friedman (D-TX) announced that he would be ending his quixotic campaign for Governor. Last month Hank Gilbert (D-TX) said that he would make a second attempt at Agriculture Commissioner. He was the Democratic nominee in 2006.

     Houston Mayor Bill White (D-TX) still does not have a clear path to the Democratic nomination. Businessman Farouk Shami (D-TX) is threatening to spend millions of dollars of his personal funds in the primary.


     The Republican primary continues to boil with accusations of corruption and incompetence being flung at Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) and U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX). The husband of a Corpus Christi judge who was seeking appointment to the Texas Supreme Court is alleging that GOP officials told him that his support of Hutchison "was standing in his wife's way" of the job.
