Another Democrat for Governor

Apparently Bob Gammage has started putting some feelers out on whether to challenge Chris Bell. KT has a great post that talks about the letter being sent around to key people in the party and Gammage himself.

I tend not to speculate on rumors, but this one has legs.

I think Gammage might have an easier time in San Antonio than current candidate Chris Bell. Gommage's resume shows legal experience, elected experience, and most importantly military experience.

Bell's experience as a journalist and then Congressman is impressive, but it is a harder sell in San Antonio. Gammage's Texas-centric experiences and his military experiences should play into a town that is becoming more focused on the military.

I honestly believe that a competitive democratic primary for Gov would be a good thing. It will cause more interest in the general election and will make both candidates stronger to take on Perry. All we have to do is wait and see.
