One Week From Today, Kay and Rick Look to Get Some Gubernatorial Campaign Company

Speaking of former owners of the Texas Rangers ...

Don't know if you've seen it, as it's only been viewed 267 times in the past month, but Tom Schieffer's campaign has posted to Vimeo a howdy-do in which he surrounds himself with pictures of and books about former presidents in order to appear so very gubernatorial. There's also a Tom for Texas Web site, which is all but empty, save for a link to a June 28 campaign kick-off and fund-raiser out in Azle at Meto and Virginia Miteff's lake house.

But a Friend of Unfair Park sends word that one week from today, matter of fact, Schieffer will officially become a Democratic candidate for governor of Texas with an official announcement planned in Fort Worth -- to be held in front of his old elementary school, matter of fact. That's just adorable. Also, very mayoral campaign-sounding.
