Race for the Governor's Seat

By  | 

It'll be a November race for governor between GOP incumbent Rick Perry and Democratic former congressman Chris Bell -- and perhaps one or two independents.

Perry vanquished three little-known opponents in yesterday's GOP primary, while Bell beat former Texas Supreme Court justice Bob Gammage. State Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn and author-entertainer Kinky Friedman are now circulating petitions to make the November gubernatorial ballot as independents.
