Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) today endorsed Texas Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams for the Senate seat that will become vacant when Sen. Kay Baily Hutchinson (R-Texas) resigns to run against Gov. Rick Perry in the GOP primary. Williams is seen as the conservative favorite to take the seat; DeMint’s Senate Conservatives Fund has endorsed four candidates for 2010: Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Marco Rubio in Florida, Chuck DeVore in California, and now Williams in Texas.
“Michael Williams is the Democrat Party’s worst nightmare. He’s a principled, outspoken conservative who will fight to stop the massive spending, bailouts and takeovers that have destroyed millions of jobs and piled a mountain of debt on our children and grandchildren,” said Senator DeMint in s statement. “Michael Williams has a compelling life story, a proven conservative record and an energetic grassroots following that make him one of the most exciting Senate candidates in the nation.”
I’ll have more to say about Williams’ candidacy later.
