Kay Bailey Hutchison Brings Campaign to Midland

MIDLAND - Kay Bailey Hutchison is rallying support for her run at the governor's office in 2010.

The long-time U.S. Senator made Midland one of her stops in a 19 city, five day tour to announce her intention to oppose current Governor Rick Perry in the Republican Primary.

Friday afternoon's rally at Compressor Systems just off F.M. 1788 was a chance for supporters to hear from the senior senator.

Hutchison has been mulling over a gubernatorial run for the past several months and officially announced her candidacy in LaMarque on Monday.

Political experts say this could be an ugly year as Hutchison and Perry duke it out for their party's nomination.
