In a word - that sucks.
The polling goes:
David Dewhurst 51 %
Ted Cruz 16 %
Tom Leppert 7%
Craig James 2%
Glenn Addison less than 1%
The primary is scheduled for May 29, so James still has time to win what should be his rightful seat to the U.S. Senate after years of preparing for this position ... talking about college football for a living.
When this campaign ends what does James do:
a.) Open a gas station in Lubbock?
b.) Does ESPN re-hire James to return to his role as a divisive analyst that people loved to hate?
c.) Join another network where he can get under people's skin?
d.) Take a different run at politics?
e.) Write a bio titled, "How Craig James Killed Five Hookers & Got Away with It"; click here for a link to this internet sensation story, and former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach having fun with it.
As much as James' departure from politics that lasted a solid 25 minutes, expect him to return to the public spotlight very soon.
