Perry says he will retire, but doesn't rule out another presidential run. Well, I'm glad he's not running, but the bad news is Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. a republican, will most likely run. He's just as conservative, but a little smarter.

So far no democrat stands out from the crowd to run for governor. Yea, I know about Wendy, but so far she's just a blip on the radar. Also Texas is still too red to elect a democrat.

check the 2010 numbers - if 25% of female Rs voters seitch frim R to D

Wendy will win

Not a chance in hell Wendy can win a Texas governors campaign. She was a flash in the pan. It seems people outside Texas noticed her more than Texans did.

At the moment I'd guess Attorney General Greg Abbott will be Texas next governor. As far as I know, no democrat has even hinted they would run.

While Abbot is the obvious front runner Rs, Wendy just "shown up".
Lets see what happens in 6 months.
A key to her success may be how the news reports how the clinic closings & restrictions actually affect REAL texass women.

I don't need to hedge. Republicans still own Texas. Possible gun restrictions got more public interest than abortion.

For whatever it's worth, the abortion bill passed today will probably never get enacted. It violates Roe .v Wade. The courts will overturn it.

Damn. The abortion bill gained four votes after her filibuster, so I think you might be right.

Hopefully, this will just put more Rs at risk in the next election
