It’s Kirk Watson.The Democratic state senator from Austin has posted a new video on his Web site in which he races from one site around town to the next, talking about all of the work facing Texas.”We’ve just got to get more of our kids in need enrolled in the Children’s Health Insurance Program,” he says outside of an emergency room.”And find a transportation policy that works, but not for private gain,” he says standing on a bridge above traffic on Interstate 35.And so on. At the end of each brief scene he dashes on to the next. Our favorite has to be Watson in full scrubs in a hospital room.It wraps up like a campaign ad, with an announcer saying that Watson is “always thinking, always trying, always working.”And always running? Maybe, but he’s not up for re-election until 2010.
