U.S. Senate race: Bill White's comin' to town


SA native and adorable Mad Hatter stand-in Bill White is coming to town tomorrow in pursuit of the Senate seat being vacated by the next governor of Texas (unless you guys are finally ready for "Ann Richards in drag").

You can press the flesh with Houston's mayor (and former Deputy Secretary of Energy) -- who's been endorsed by SA's state Dem delegation -- at a few whistlestops Saturday. Fellow Democrat and former state legislator and Comptroller John Sharp is also in the race, as is Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, Republican, considered a likely appointment to Hutchison's seat if/when she resigns this fall. (Clarification: Dewhurst has announced that he's seeking reelection, but he's also not not seeking Hutchison's seat.)
