Both sides in the coming battle between House Majority Leader Jim Wright and former Fort Worth Mayor Pro Tem Jim Bradshaw are quietly preparing themselves for a long, nasty campaign. With the election almost a year away, Bradshaw has resigned his City Council post and started marshalling mega-bucks and Fort Worth political forces to build his campaign. Count on Bradshaw to spend in six figures to try to unseat Wright, who customarily wins re-election by 60 percent of the vote or more. The most that has ever been spent on a campaign to oppose Wright was $60,000, chicken feed compared to the dollars Bradshaw is prepared to put up. One of Bradshaw’s primary arm-twisting targets will likely be the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which traditionally has read like a Jim Wright fan club newsletter.
