Mansfield Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Kilgore is drawing a lot of blog attention around the state for his speech Saturday at the "Draw A Line" rally Saturday at the Texas Capitol, which called for "sovereignty or secession."
Speakers included secessionist Daniel Miller, who has claimed to be the legal president of the government of the Republic of Texas,
Organizers estimated the crowd at between 1,500 and 2,000. One writer from the liberal Texas Observer blog estimated it at 200.
Kilgore, a perennial candidate, has run for House seats in Colorado and Texas and has also run primary campaigns against Texas Gov. Rick Perry and U.S. Sen. John Cornyn.
