The Chron gave its endorsements for Governor and Lt. Governor today, going with Governor Goodhair and John Sharp. Neither of these comes as a surprise to me. Sharp is exactly the kind of fiscal conservative/social moderate that the Chron generally likes, while Rick Perry is a Republican running for Governor, which has been sufficient for every Chron endorsement since at least 1990. If you think I'm just being a bitter partisan, read the following paragraph:
But the point is that Perry has experience and a record he is willing to defend. As a member of the Texas House, as the state's agriculture commissioner, as lieutenant governor and as governor since December 2000, Perry has a long track record and knows how the state Capitol works.
