Strayhorn's money

Looks like Comptroller Strayhorn will be in decent financial shape for any GOP primary she chooses to participate in.

Republican Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn said Thursday that she has $5.7 million in cash on hand for her next campaign.


"In 30 years of public service, I have never enjoyed this level of support this far out from an election," Strayhorn said. "I am honored and humbled by the support of hard-working Texans across this state."

Between July 1 and Dec. 11, Strayhorn raised $2.25 million.

Perry, who also filed his report on Thursday, said he has $8 million in cash on hand for his re-election bid.

U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, also thought to be a contender for governor, has $6.7 million to spend on a state or U.S. Senate campaign.

Let's hope all three of them spend much of that money in the primary. More info at the PerryVsWorld blog.
