Hillary Clinton's campaign peeps just sent her Texas schedule for tomorrow: 9 a.m. at the McAllen Convention Center, 1 p.m. at the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds in Robstown, 6:30 p.m. in the St. Mary’s University Gymnasium in San Antonio -- where Texas State Representative Trey Martinez Fischer endorsed Barack Obama today. But when reached by Unfair Park today, a campaign staffer said no other Texas appearances are yet scheduled -- though, certainly, she'll swing through Dallas before the March 4 primary. After all, as The New York Times put it today, "For Clinton, Bid Hinges on Texas and Ohio."
Also, no Barack Obama Texas stops have yet been announced -- just tonight's shindig, as we mentioned yesterday, and Sunday's Fair Park rally led by former mayor Ron Kirk. But courtesy the National Journal's blog, we do get a sneak at Obama's Spanish-language radio ad set to run in San Antonio, Harlingen, Corpus Christi, Laredo, Houston, Austin, El Paso and, of course, Dallas. --Robert Wilonsky
