      Hutchison skipping bid for governor, seeking
      re-election

      AUSTIN (AP) -- Republican U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey
      Hutchison won't be running for governor in 2006.

      Her campaign tonight announced Hutchison will be
      seeking re-election to the Senate.

      Hutchison earlier today appeared in Plano and said she
      was near a decision on whether to challenge G-O-P Gov.
      Rick Perry.

      Perry called Hutchison a "champion" for Texas in
      Washington and said her decision to seek re-election
      to the Senate is "great news for Texas."

      Hutchison campaign manager Terry Sullivan says
      Hutchison on June 27th will discuss her decision and
      why she believe it's in best interest of Texas.

      Sullivan, when reached by The Associated Press,
      declined further comment on the 61-year-old senator's
      decision and motivation.

      Republican Texas Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn
      has scheduled a public rally tomorrow in Austin --
      where she's expected to announce a challenge to Perry.
