A little bird told Schutze that “some Democrats” have approached Mayor Mike Rawlings about challenging John Cornyn next year for a U.S. Senate seat.
Rawlings conceded that such proposals have been made, but he insisted that he’s not going to wade into partisan politics right now because of his commitments to the citizens of Dallas.
He said, “The role of mayor is to stay out of this partisan hogwash as much as I can, so opining on different positions of the Democratic and Republican parties gets me in the middle of that.”
Tried again with some other limp line. He said, “The most important thing for me is to keep figuring out this stuff at City Hall and trying to get people, whether they are Republicans or Democrats, to see that these cities are the real engine drivers in America.”
