News 8 Austin's Katie Beck talked with Hans Klinger of the Texas Republican party. Klinger complains that Howard Dean's visit to Texas is a waste of gas. Dean is traveling across Texas as part of a voter registration drive.

Klinger describes Dean's efforts to convert Texas into a swing state as "a pipe dream." Klinger said, When Howard Dean goes door-to-door in the state of Texas, I challenge them to meet him with a door slam or an, 'I'm not interested.'"
