Consider this your last warning. Don't be surprised to see Craig James trying to get back in the broadcast booth this fall because his bid to become a U.S. Senator from Texas is all but finished.
James, a Republican, announced last December that he was stepping down from his ESPN analyst job to run for the seat being vacated by Kay Bailey Hutchison. The primary is May 29 — three weeks from today — and polling indicates that James is losing badly.
James is drawing only 7% of the projected vote. Frontrunner David Dewhurst is at 38%, followed by Ted Cruz at 26% and Tom Leppert at 8%.
