HopeTracker| Politico writes that GOP colleagues are encouraging Kay Bailey Hutchcinson to stay in her Senate seat, after suffering defeat Tuesday in the Txas gubernatorial primary.
“I want her to serve out her term,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who supported Hutchison in the primary. “She’s a good person and a good senator.”
Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) went further, saying Hutchison should “absolutely” stay and calling her “one of our best.” via Politico
Johmn Cornyn, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee was scheduled to take Hutchinson’s seat if she won. He, too, suggests that Hutchinson remain in place.
