Craig James to file for Senate

You know what we need? Another Republican candidate for Senate.

Former SMU standout Craig James will file his candidacy for the U.S. Senate by Thursday’s deadline, according to sources close to his developing campaign.

James, an ESPN college football analyst, is hoping that his name recognition and fresh face makes him the alternative to Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. Former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert and former Solicitor General Ted Cruz are the other major contenders.

I’m not really sure why he thinks his name recognition will be enough to beat out those three, but hey, dream big. I should note that James has been thinking about this for some time, so while his entry is late, he’s not a johnny-come-lately. And the offer I made back then still totally stands. Hair Balls and Texas on the Potomac have more.
