Averitt makes it almost official

Responding no doubt to speculation surrounding Brian Birdwell's eligibility to serve, Sen. Kip Averitt (R-Waco) has confirmed to the Austin American-Statesman that he will withdraw his re-election candidacy as planned.

Whether Birdwell will in fact replace Averitt come November remains a bit of a question mark.

Never a dull moment …
