The eyes of TexasNew polling information out of Texas shows that Mike Huckabee and John McCain are in a dead heat in the Lone Star State. We're being told the nominating process is essentially concluded and that John McCain is King, Emperor, Lord and Master of the GOP. Apparently, someone forgot to send that memo to the good people of the old Republic.
I'll have a bit more tomorrow on Congressman David Davis' address to T-FIRE in Morristown and the role of Congress in this year's presidential election. One thing Congressman Davis told me yesterday is that he believes that the only reason that John McCain is the likely Republican nominee is because of the division of the conservative vote in the entire process. Davis and everyone else with political acumen knows that, but it also stands to reason that since the base of the party never wanted McCain to begin with, they at least have a chance to let him know their disapproval and make it known that they are not going away. The base of the party also has an outside chance to make sure the Republican National Convention is something more than a four-day infomercial.
