AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Republican U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and former Houston Mayor Bill White, a Democrat, are sweeping up all of the major newspaper endorsements in the race for Texas governor.
Hutchison, trying to oust Gov. Rick Perry in the Republican primary, was described as a trailblazer with a "proven record of working across party lines to benefit all" in the Houston Chronicle endorsement. Perry, the GOP front-runner, broke with tradition this year and decided not to seek endorsements from newspaper editorial boards.
In endorsing White in the Democratic primary, the Austin American-Statesman applauded the San Antonio native's "low-key, thoughtful approach that seems like just what Texas needs now."
