Kay Bailey Hutchison, the senior senator from Texas, issued a statement Monday concerning the goings-on at Texas A&M:
“Texas A&M University is one of the premier universities in the country. The current situation with the leadership is unfortunate, unacceptable, and does the great Aggie community a disservice. I hope at their meeting today, the Board of Regents remains focused on keeping A&M a nationally recognized university and ends the politics involved now.”
Hutchison, a Republican, is running for governor. She would face incumbent Rick Perry in the primaries in February if both stay in the race.
As governor, Perry appoints regents to the boards of all state universities.
