Kay Bailey Hutchison to Stay in the Senate

Last November, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison promised to step down after the March 2 gubernatorial GOP:
Reid Wilson reports:
Hutchison was lobbied by a number of her Senate colleagues to stay in office, but it's not clear that was in the best interests of the GOP. Republicans should be able to hold the seat in 2012, but that's no guarantee, whereas it looks pretty close to impossible for a Democrat to win a Senate seat in Texas this coming November. In other words, Hutchison's decision to stay is not exactly a huge coup for the GOP.
