Letter to Editor: Pete Sessions short-changes voters

From Dallas Morning News comes this letter to the editor in response to Pete Sessions' plan for Kay Bailey Hutchison to hold onto her seat in the Senate while running for Governor: Sessions short-changing voters
First, politicians must take a chance and relinquish their current seats while having a viable and attractive platform to run for an higher office. While running for a new office and holding a current office, they are short-changing the electorate that voted for them.

Second, Pete Sessions fears the loss of a Senate seat due to a special election should Kay Bailey Hutchison vacate her Senate seat. Again we see partisan politics trump statesmanship and the will of the electorate.

He works for us -- not the other way around.
