Time will tell if session helped, hurt Perry's bid

Time will tell if session helped, hurt Perry's bid: "After running Austin's Freescale Marathon in February, Gov. Rick Perry fielded a typical post-race query: When is your next one?

'I'm in it,' Perry said.

And the race goes on, with the legislative session that ended Monday leaving the 55-year-old West Texas native with 17 months remaining in his quest for re-election.

Along the way, foes from both parties will surely attempt to downgrade Perry's performance as the state's chief executive since late 2000. Uncertain is whether Perry will emerge stronger from this session or whether the sticky legacy of the past 140 days will be the Republican majority's failure to pass plans to reform education and swap higher state taxes for lower school property taxes."
