Hutchison shakes up campaign team
The polls suggest they have some catching up to do. Their biggest challenge is going to be separating the Senator from the Washington scene where things are happening that Texans are not happy with. Her meeting with the folks at the Texas Medical Center was a good start. She also needs to be more proactive in fighting against the Democrats' anti energy bill, i.e. cap and trade. That bill offers her several opportunities she needs to seize.
Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison switched campaign managers on Monday, just weeks before she is expected to formally announce that she is challenging Rick Perry in the Republican primary for governor.
Campaign officials said former leader Rick Wiley is leaving because a recent health problem requires that he reduce the high stress and avoid the hectic pace of managing a large campaign.
Hutchison's campaign also introduced a host of new communications experts onto the team.
