Former SMU star and ESPN College Football commentator Craig James has launched a campaign ad praising Texas Governor and Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Perry.

The problem for James, aside from the litany of issues that haunt him from SMU and Texas Tech, is that Perry already offered some defacto support for Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst in the U.S. Senate race.

James will be lucky to break double-digits in the Republican Primary where Dewhurst and staunch conservative favorite Ted Cruz are the two candidates to make the likely run-off for the party's nomination. James has little hope of winning, much less gaining any traction with voters in Texas.
