I was told the other day that Attorney General Abbott has hired Dave Carney as his general consultant. I didn't think much of it besides questioning the AG's judgement. I mean Carney knows Texas pretty well but he has not been all that successful with the exception of Perry. Remember Dave ran former Speaker Tom Craddick's political shop, Stars over Texas, that resulted in Craddick losing a bunch of house seats and is ultimately to blame for Craddick losing his Speakership.
And Dave was Governor Perry's consultant in his failed Presidential bid.
Then it hit me. Dave Carney knows everything there is to know about Governor Perry. He knows where all the bodies are buried and he knows how to beat Perry. If this is not the biggest signal yet that Greg Abbott intends to run for Governor I don't know what is.
If the Perry decides to run for another term as Governor the primary will be interesting to say the least. There is no love loss between Carney and the Governor since Perry dumped him and brought in Joe Allbaugh.
Got to love Texas politics.
