Craig the Quotable

January 13, 2012

There is still much to learn about what type of Senate candidate Craig James will end up being, but on his first day meeting the media -- and the other GOP candidates, in a debate on Thursday night -- we learned that he's pretty quotable. Some gems from the Houston Chronicle, Dallas Morning News and Austin American-Statesman stories:

-- He believes that "right is right; wrong is wrong. It's never right to do wrong."

-- "I will not go up there and be soft," he said. "When I go to Washington, D.C., you can rest assured that I'm going up there to kick the skunks out of the bushes."

-- "Just look to the Constitution, look to the playbook."

James also said he accepted "an insignificant amount" of gifts from boosters when he was a college running back. Not exactly an ideal subject for day one of a statewide bid.
