In what can only be referred to as “Watson Watch”, State Senator and one of Texas Monthly's ten best legislators Kirk Watson has some pretty big fundraising numbers to report.
According to some, Senator Watson is reporting an impressive cash on hand number, “$1,436,000, mas o menos.”
Watson has said he will not announce his intent on whether to run for higher office or return to the Texas Senate until much later in the summer, but the money he has currently raised for his Texas Senate account can be used for a run for any other Texas statewide office.
This cash on hand number indicates Watson could be a formidable statewide candidate if he chooses to run.
For disclosure, I am supportive of the Draft Watson movement on facebook and any other format.
