LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Wednesday afternoon, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison laid out her plans for change at a rally in Lubbock. Hutchison officially announced her candidacy for governor on Monday. Since then, she's been touring the state rallying support.

Around 150-people showed up at the Frazier Alumni Pavilion to hear her speech. Hutchison says it's time for change, and part of that includes term limits for Texas governor.  "I think that really, Governor Perry is trying to stay too long. We've had 10-years with Governor Perry, and I think 14-years of one person making all the appointments to every board and state agency commission is just too much," Hutchison said. 

She also spoke about changes to state transportation, health care, fiscal policy, and rebuilding the republican party.  Tonight on NewsChannel 11 at ten, we ask Hutchison about the controversy surrounding her web site.
