Pauken bows out of governor's race

Three days after visiting the Llano County Republican Club at Quail Point in Horseshoe Bay, gubernatorial candidate Tom Pauken announced Thursday he was withdrawing from the race.
"Even though I have worked hard to get our message out across the state the past six months, unfortunately we are nowhere near where we need to be financially and organizationally to win this race,” wrote Pauken in a letter sent Thursday to donors and supporters. "I can no longer in good conscience ask friends and fellow conservatives to continue to help me when there appears to be no realistic path to victory.
"Greg Abbott has a $25 million war chest and the media depicts this as a Greg Abbott vs. Wendy Davis race.”
Pauken visited the Llano County Republican Club quarterly meeting Tuesday and gave a message rallying Republicans to fight on the cultural front of the nation.
