Some Texas politicians are no-shows at Super Bowl
Some Texas politicians made news for NOT showing up at today's Super Bowl.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry is in California, celebrating what would have been former President Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday.
Apparently Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and House Speaker Joe Straus had other plans as well. Many state and congressional lawmakers planned to watch the game at home or with family or friends.
On the other hand, some wouldn't miss the live show. U.S. Sens. John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison are planning to be here, as is former President George W. Bush
