Well, what do you know? Someone in the media has discovered that Kay Bailey Hutchison is not running unopposed next year. See how it's done in this piece on base closings in Texas.
The state's losses provided Barbara Ann Radnofsky, expected to be Hutchison's Democratic opponent next year, with an opportunity to hammer the senator on her record.
“Texas as a whole didn't benefit from her seniority,” Radnofsky said. “I think this is going to be one of the major issues in this race.”
Radnofsky, a Houston attorney and partner with the law firm of Vinson & Elkins, is making her first bid for office.
She noted that Hutchison, who was elected in 1993, was in office when the last BRAC round, 10 years ago, pummeled San Antonio and surrounding communities with the closure of Kelly Air Force Base.
“I believe it was on her watch that many thousands of jobs were lost at Kelly” in 1995, she said.
For more news on Radnofsky, here's the report of her recent visit to Kerrville.Posted by Charles Kuffner on August 30, 2005 to Election 2006 | TrackBack
