Tea Party favorite Debra Medina gaining in Texas race 

Upstart Texas gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina is gaining in the polls and now sits 4 points behind Kay Bailey Hutchison.

From PPP:

Medina is coming on strong and polls now at 24%, just four points behind Kay Bailey Hutchison's 28%. Perry continues to hold a double digit advantage at 39%.

Medina is clearly riding the wave of discontent with the Republican establishment. Among primary voters who disapprove of the job the GOP in Congress is doing she actually leads with 37% to 32% for Perry and 22% for Hutchison.

Early voting for the Texas primary begins on Feb. 16. If Medina gains more support, its possible that she might make in the runoff election against Perry.
