Perry has won. Hutchison has conceded. Medina refuses to concede. What are your thoughts on Perry retaining the GOP nomination?
Also, will Hutchison resign as promised? Should Hutchison resign as promised, the Governor should appoint Michael Williams as Interim Senator.
Who will Republicans select as their nominee for the Governor of Texas? We will know in just a few short hours, as millions of Republican votes are being counted as I write this. Media reports are indicating an enormous turnout amongst dedicated Republican voters in the Lonestar state, perhaps a political barometer of measuring Conservative and Republican interest in the upcoming elections.
Governor Perry is a dedicated Conservative who deserves another term in office, Senator Hutchison would make a fine Executive despite her "Washington connection" and I would support the Democrat if Medina is selected as our nominee. With that said, I support the Republican incumbent; Rick Perry.
Jumping in Pools will be updating results from Texas, as the votes are counted.
Remember, Perry needs 50% or more of the vote to win the nomination tonight, anything else will result in another Republican vote between himself and the Senator.
