Gov. Haley Barbour Want Perry & Hutchison To Stay Where They Are

19 Nov

A big arguement I have heard against Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison is this:

Why? Everything seems like it’s fine… why is she running?

That arguement has a lot of merit and today CNN is reporting that Mississippi Governor and head of the Republican Governors Association (RGA), spoke with Hutchison and hope that KBH will stay in the senate. Here is the story from CNN: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/11/19/barbour-hopes-hutchison-stays-in-senate/

Cedar Creek, Texas (CNN)– Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said Thursday that he hopes Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison remains in the Senate and acknowledged that he has spoken with her about challenging Gov. Rick Perry in the GOP primary.

Barbour, head of the Republican Governors Association (RGA), would not elaborate on his conversation with Hutchison, but did say he personally hopes Perry wins another term.

“I would just hate to lose Kay Bailey in the Senate,” Barbour said at a news conference during the RGA’s annual meeting. “She has been a great senator. I would just hate to lose a great senator like that when we have a fine governor.”

Barbour did note that the RGA, which is the campaign arm for GOP governors, would not be taking a side in the primary. Still, this week’s conference is being held in Perry’s home state and he has played a prominent role as host of the event.

So what do you think?
