LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - There has been talk of U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison making her way into the 2010 Texas gubernatorial race.

The East Texas News caught up with the Senator this weekend and set the record straight.

"I am certainly in the planning stages to run for Governor, very excited about it. Really so much support and I feel like it's going to be a go," Hutchison said.

She said hopefully this summer they will be able to make the final formal announcement.
