The Secessionist has a real problem on his hands.

More than a dozen prominent Dallas business and civic leaders, including several who supported Kay Bailey Hutchison in the Republican primary for governor, have signed a letter backing Democrat Bill White in his effort to unseat Republican Gov. Rick Perry in the Nov. 2 general election. [...]

Among the signers are Dallas investor Edward “Rusty” Rose, a prominent supporter of former President George W. Bush who served with Bush as a partner in the Texas Rangers baseball club; former Pizza Hut executive Mike Rawlings; and Lucy Billingsley, who heads a multimillion-dollar real estate company.

Remember, the Bush-Rove crowd backed Kay Bailey Hutchison in her bid to unseat the Secessionist in the primary. What’s interesting is the Secessionist himself was a Rove creation.

Texas has a real chance of having a Democratic governor again. Donate to the Bill White campaign.
