Explained: Governor candidate musical chairs

Lots of movement in the race for Governor today. Houston Mayor Bill White made it official and announced his candidacy for Governor, while Hank Gilbert made it official and un-announced his.

Ok, that’s a bit confusing, so let me back up and explain in more detail.

Months ago, Hank told Tom Schieffer, who was running for Governor, that Hank would run for Agriculture Commissioner, but then Hank instead announced for Governor, which Tom was already running for. Now, Hank is miffed that Bill told Hank that Bill would run for U.S. Senate, before Tom endorsed Bill and Bill announced for Governor, which Hank was running for, but Tom suddenly wasn’t. So Hank is supporting Farouk for Governor, which Farouk is running for, but Hank isn’t. Now Hank’s running for Agriculture Commissioner, which is what he said he’d do in the first place.

I’m glad I could clear all that up for you. It’s so simple, really.

    I’m confused. Not about that. Just generally.

    This is why people should hate kids.
