It is with deep regret that BurkaBlog bids farewell to State Senator Robert Duncan. As most readers know by now, Duncan resigned his seat to become chancellor at the Texas Tech University System.Duncan rates as one of the best senators of all time. He has long been a fixture on the Ten Best Legislators list, and he never let ideology get in the way of getting things done. He is the last link to the great senators (Ratliff-Sibley-Ogden) of the 1990s/2000s. Duncan’s speciality was fixing what was broken. He could always pull a rabbit out of a hat. No doubt he will be a huge asset to Texas Tech, but he will be missed in the Lege.
