Craddick: Bring it on

Keffer may be in, but Tom Craddick isn't going away. And he has lots of money. The question is whether Keffer will strike before the end of the session or not. It makes sense that he will, but predicting the future is even more of a mug's game than usual these days.

By the way, the Texas Alliance for Life has sent out that pro-Craddick email again, after Keffer had officially filed his papers. Anyone want to say whether that changes things from a legality viewpoint?

I would say that Texas Alliance for Life's first amendment rights trump any state campaign finance law. Political speech is at the core of the first amendment, and this is clearly a political group exercising its right to free speech. Plus, the cost to compose and send an email is nominal...any expense is incidental.
