Strayhorn must count on new GOP voters - Editorial & Opinion - 07/17/2005 - McNeely: Strayhorn must count on new GOP voters: "It's possible Gov. Perry has irked enough people - particularly in the education community - that even some who voted for him in the past will turn thumbs down.

His staff has boasted that in a primary, no one can get to the right of Perry, who has shamelessly panderied to the religious right. But that leaves the center - if a center develops in the modern GOP primary.

A couple of polls of GOP voters earlier showed U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, a moderate conservative, beating Perry almost two to one.

Perry's unbroken string of election victories could have been ended had Hutchison not decided to run for re-election instead of governor next year."
