David Dewhurst released the names of his finance committee yesterday, and it is a who’s who of major Republican donors. I had written about Todd Staples previously, Dan Patrick has released a few names such as James Leininger, but Dewhurst’s list an entirely different dimension. It blows the competition out of the water.

I’m not going to name everyone, but I will hit some of the highlights:

Ernie Cockrell
Richard Collins
Harlan Crow
James Dannenbaum
Robert Duncan
Kevin Eltife
James Francis
Steve Hicks
Peter Holt
Charles Hurwitz
Jerry Jones
Joe Long
Red McCombs
Drayton MacLane
John Montford
John Nau
Erle Nye
Pat Oles
Brint Ryan

Too many others to name. The point is, nobody in the light gov’s race is going to be able to match Dewhurst for money. This is monopoly.
