Craig the Quotable

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.
