Incumbent Rick Perry's lead over Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison has grown a little bigger in the race for this year's Republican gubernatorial nomination in Texas. Tea Party activist Debra Medina also has gained ground, and her gains appear to come at the expense of Hutchison.
The latest Rasmussen Reports survey of likely Republican Primary voters in Texas finds Perry leading Hutchison 44% to 29%, with Medina at 16%.
Medina has gained four points since the previous survey while Hutchison has lost four points. Perry's support is little changed from a month ago.
Harvey observes that this is the first time Kay Bailey has polled below 30%.
Now that first link above -- here it is again -- also contains my prediction for the Democratic primary, a prediction I reposted today on Dr. Richard Murray's blog... where he thinks Bill White is going to get 60% on March 2.
I will certainly look forward to comparing the outcomes with our predictions on Election Night.
