According to a new poll, possibly (if he decides to run)! The impending retirement of Texas Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison has created an open seat in 2012, and Ron Paul comes in a close second in a PPP poll measuring support for prospective candidates among Republican voters. Fun fact: The only father-son duo to ever serve simultaneously in the Senate was Henry Dodge of Wisconsin and Augustus Dodge of Iowa, between 1855 and 1857. [PPP]
