UNDATED — Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison is planning to step down from the Senate this fall to battle fellow Republican Rick Perry for Governor.
The Senator talked about her decision in a radio interview on Wednesday.
She says, she wants to stay in the Senate long enough to fight President Obama's healthcare plan.
Mrs. Hutchison says she will launch her campaign for Governor in August.
