Kay Bailey Hutchinson supporters are demanding an apology from Texas Governor Rick Perry, whose top political strategist insulted her by throwing around the word 'whorehouse" in reference to moderate Republicans. In an interview last weekend, Dave Carney said the GOP should welcome new voters, but "that doesn't mean you take your principles and throw them out the door and become a whorehouse and let anybody in who wants to come in, regardless." Perry is backing off the statement, saying his adviser wasn't speaking for him and certainly wasn't referring to Hutchinson, his upcoming rival for the 2010 governor's race. Hutchinson, who is pro-choice, has said that the party shouldn't focus on social issues like abortion, but instead should rally around economic issues like lower taxes and smaller government.
