Both Gov. Rick Perry and his re-election opponent, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison have issued statements congratulating Cathie Adams on her election as chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. We reprint below:
Gov. Rick Perry:
"I want to congratulate Cathie on becoming the new Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. I look forward to working with her to advance the conservative values that have made both our state and party stronger. As we continue working to build our party, Cathie's leadership will be essential to cultivating and attracting new voters who share our belief in lower taxes, less government and building a climate that attracts jobs to our state."
