Texas Tea

From Karl Frisch at MEDIA MATTERS (April 24, 2010):

As Media Matters noted in a special report released this week:

In recent years, at least twenty Fox News personalities have endorsed, raised money, or campaigned for Republican candidates or causes, or against Democratic candidates or causes, in more than 300 instances and in at least 49 states. Republican parties and officials have routinely touted these personalities’ affiliations with Fox News to sell and promote their events.

Now the Associated Press is reporting that Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) — whose prospects for reelection in November are considered a “toss-up” by prominent political analyst Charlie Cook — is slated to participate in Fox News host Glenn Beck’s traveling road-show today when it touches down in Texas:

With his Republican primary victory safely behind him, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is still working hard to court conservative voters.

Perry, who is running for a third full term in office, is scheduled to speak Saturday night at conservative radio and television talk show host Glenn Beck’s “Taking Back America” town hall event in Tyler.

From The Dallas Morning News:

AUSTIN – As the GOP struggles nationally to redefine itself, the debate over what it means to be a Republican is playing out in Texas, too, through Kay Bailey Hutchison’s challenge to Gov. Rick Perry.

Hutchison says the “core principles” that will help the party grow are not social, but economic: smaller government, lower taxes and free enterprise.

Perry’s appeal is to a GOP base that sees social issues such as abortion as a litmus test of party purity.
