The San Antonio Express-News reports on the Bexar County DA, Susan Reed, and the movement into drafting her to run for Attorney General. Bexar, unlike Harris, elects its DAs in midterm elections, explaining why a Republican still controls such an office. The SAEN article very subtly implies that Cornyn and Hutchison have been the key backers of this “Draft Reed” movement for her to run for the Attorney General’s office.
Again, this all depends upon the dominoes falling correctly. If Perry runs, Abbott might not, and, if Abbott runs for re-election, the GOP will probably not tolerate another competitive primary.
For what it’s worth, no other news source has picked this up.
