ABSTRACT
Reports that Texas politicians and Tory Democrats Bill Hobby and Bill Clayton face the dilemma of fashioning a presidential primary for Texas in light of the fact that the old law has lapsed, and they are not gentlemen who relish political risk and uncertainty. Hobby is the lieutenant governor; Clayton is Speaker of the House of Representatives; Solution could have an impact on who the Republicans nominate for president in 1980; Texans' disinterest in changing the state's "open primary" system in which voters do not have to register their party affiliation in advance, and may vote in any party primary they wish.
