Tom Leppert is a businessman and former Dallas mayor, now running for the Senate seat held by Kay Bailey Hutchison, who is not running for re-election in 2012.  On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, he talked about his jobs plan, which includes tax reform and reducing the role of government.

Leppert says he’s not a career politician.

“I don’t want another career, ” Leppert said.  “I’m very happy to  put a limitation on it.  No more than two terms.  The reality of it is we’re going to have to address this fiscal situation in the next term.”
