Mayor Tom on Kay Bailey's Announcement
No, no, it has nothing to do with whether or not Tom Leppert's going to run for her Senate seat following today's bit o' breaking news. Sorry. That announcement's still a few weeks off -- after the Super Bowl, that's my guess. Chris Heinbaugh, the mayor's chief of staff, sends this instead:
"I want to join with so many Texans in thanking Kay for her outstanding service to our state and our nation. Clearly she has been a strong advocate and has fought tenaciously for the interests of Texas. In addition, she has been a good friend and champion of Dallas."
