Hutchison tells MSNBC she’s ‘probably’ done running for office

Outgoing Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison once thought about running for president, but for now she’s "probably" done running for office. She also dislikes the term RINO, because she doesn’t think Republicans should attack each other. She told this to Chuck Todd on MSNBC’s "Daily Rundown" Tuesday during her "exit interview."

Sen. Hutchison vows to help Cruz prepare to fill her seat

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison says she will help Ted Cruz get elected to fill her seat in Washington. She announced her retirement almost two years ago.

“I’d like to congratulate both Ted Cruz and David Dewhurst on a hard fought primary.

“In the coming months, I will do everything I can to support the election of Ted Cruz to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate and be available to him for any questions that will prepare him for the issues he will face.

“It is more important than ever that we have leaders who are committed to get our country back on track – focused on cutting spending and creating jobs to grow our economy.”
