Craig James still talking about running
Graham Hunter on the D mag blog:
ESPN college football analyst Craig James, who's weighing a run for Kay Bailey Hutchison's senate seat, says his role in the firing of Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach won't hurt him politically -- even in the heart of Red Raiders country.
Asked when he'd make a decision about jumping into the Republican senate primary, James said, "I've got to analyze it. I'm thinking about it. I'll announce [my decision] sooner rather than later."
My guess it that James wasn't popular in Lubbock when he caused Mike Leach to be ousted, but that he's even less popular after Tech went 8-5 without Leach. On the other hand, in a multi-way field, being polarizing can work for you.
My guess would be that James -- who serves on TPPF's board -- doesn't announce, but we'll see.
By the way, am I the only one who thinks that Craig James frequently looks like former senator Kyle Janek in pictures? Add that to Chris Fowler sometimes looking Rick Perry-esque.
