Jameson could knock out Hutchison

The race for Texas Senior Senator could take an interesting turn after Libertarian Scott Lanier Jameson debates Democrat Barbara Radnofsky and Republican incumbent Kay Bailey Hutchison, one of the highest-ranked Republicans in the Senate. The latest poll to include all three candidates has Hutchison at 45.2%, Radnofsky at 36.8%, and Jameson at 7.1%. Since the debate had not happened when the poll was taken (it is scheduled for October 19), it's likely that Jameson's support will rise, since many Texans will not have heard about him. In fact, it wouldn't be surprising if he got into double digits. Since there is currently an 8.4% difference between Hutchison and Radnofsky, it is possible that an increase in suport for Jameson would knock out Hutchison, severely shaking up the Senate.

If the debate hasn't happened yet, I would encourage someone to get with Scott and go over debate edicate and how to present his points clearley and turn counterpoint arguements towards his favor.
He was a ghost at the Hob Nob, not there one minute, showed up to give a weak speech, and then disappeared. He needs a lot of work if he's going to get double digits. Delivery and poise mean just as much in a debate as content. Look at James Werner. If he couldn't present himself as he does, he wouldn't be anywhere close to his numbers, numerous other factors excluded.

I have talked to Scott. He is busting his rump and is all over the state doing talks. He has some big stuff planned. Expect the numbers to go way up.
