Sen. Hutchison speaks to Nacogdoches Rotary

BEAUMONT, TX (News Release) - By Donna McCollum - email

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison spent summers in Nacogdoches as a child. She's sticking with that practice as an adult, even though the time allowed in East Texas is much shorter.

Hutchison is planning some improvements at her family home. She did take some time to visit with the Nacogdoches Rotary Club. It gave her an opportunity to see friends and local dignitaries.

During the stop she noted her biggest concern is the economy and a growing national debt.

"Really my highest priority right now is to stop this massive spending and start cutting back so that we will not be so burdened by debt that it crushes our economy," Hutchison said.

Hutchison fears the U.S. will mirror the economic struggles the nations of Greece, Spain and Italy are experiencing.
