"Strayhorn aides requested the closure of the 1600 block of Congress Avenue, said Capt. Charles Campbell of the Department of Public Safety."It shouldn't affect anything," Campbell said, because traffic will be light and the area will only be blocked for five hours."

"Harvey Kronberg of the Quorum Report has strong reasons to believe Strayhorn will announce a run against Perry this Saturday. "The phones started humming last night essentially with Strayhorn supporters saying that they had been contacted that she was going to make an announcement this weekend," Kronberg said. "But I held the story until I had a chance to call her office. They elected not to return the call."

"The Tax, Toll and Spend Governor masquerades as a Republican. When in fact he's just a puppet for the special interests who seek to privatize and toll our Texas freeways for a profit. Freeways have never been tolled in the history of our country. Rick Perry has sold out Texans." - Sal Costello, Founder of www.TexasTollParty.com

The large tents and fans will help keep you cool on Saturday!

Strayhorn creates buzz, questions over Hutchison's future AP/DENTON RECORD CHRONICLE
"With Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn keeping the capital city buzzing with expectations of a weekend announcement of a run for governor, a big question for the Republican primary is "Where's Kay?" U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison has long been considered a potential challenger to incumbent Gov. Rick Perry, and a Strayhorn run for the office could leave Texas' senior senator playing catch-up in what would surely be a bombastic campaign. "The odd person out is Kay," Republican consultant Bill Miller said Thursday. " -AP/DENTON RECORD CHRONICLE
