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.

Very nice, and high time Senator Hutchison got her free pass revoked. Now let’s see someone press her about the Waco VA Hospital report. She’s a grownup, she can handle a few questions.

For more news on Radnofsky, here’s the report of her recent visit to Kerrville.

    Kay Bailey Hutchison handles questions very well. She just ignores the ones she doesn’t want to answer. And banishes those who ask them from her kingdom.

    One thing about Barbara Radnofsky is she is good at asking a question and then not waiting for an answer. She goes and finds the answer herself.

    Something of a lost art in modern politics.
