  2. There won’t be a runoff. Perry has all the momentum. Daily Kos polls are crap.

  3. James B, Perry needs 50 percent and he avoids the runoff and tells the Bushes to F*** themselves after they backed the wrong horse in KBH.

    Let’s say he wins the general over White in November, you know Perry is going to be out for blood against those who endorsed KBH by having conservatives primary their seats in the legislature.
