QR: Could Perry Be Planning Special Session?

Via Twitter, Quorum Report is hearing rumors from House members that Gov. Rick Perry could call a special session to keep the focus on Voter ID and his opposition to federal bailout programs.

Of course, that is just a rumor. But we thought it was worth mentioning.

What do you think the chances of that happening are?

Update - More from QR:
But the word on the House floor today was that there are only a million Texans the governor cares about right now -- likely Republican primary voters. Both voter ID and rejecting stimulus dollars work for him with these voters. He would keep center stage as he battled Washington and "liberals", so the storyline goes.

The storyline that Perry ONLY cares about next year's primary and is putting politics before governing is gathering strength. Will it have an affect on the race? At this point, too early to tell, but KBH is likely to try to make it stick.
