Watson does not appear slated to run for (0.00 / 0)
Senate re-election in '14, as Davis is. The Tex Trib says his term expires in 2015. On that basis I would posit that he is the Democrats' best hope.

It is difficult to impossible for a state representative to make the leap to the governor's mansion, and White (and Chris Bell, about whom I hear rumors in Houston of a repeat bid) just aren't worthy of a second at-bat IMHO. A Latino candidate should be welcomed, even encouraged to run in a primary... and may well be nominated. But the lack of bench depth is a real hindrance to Democratic hopes.

I hear there will be open seats at Land Commissioner and Attorney General, and maybe even Comptroller and Ag Commissioner...

Afflicting the comfortable via...

Senate Terms (0.00 / 0)
Senate terms (4 or 2 year, depending on straw draw) is a huge factor. Dems largely got the short straws. The full list is here.

Watson's up in 2014. His term expires in 2015 so that means he runs again in 2014, since they swear 'em all in during the first week of January 2015. Same's true for Wendy.
