Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison is getting some presidential support in her bid to be the next Texas governor.

Former President George H.W. Bush is expected to endorse her Friday in Houston. Her campaign has scheduled a morning press event with Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush in Houston.

It'll be Hutchison's second big-name endorsement this week, after former U.S. Secretary of State James Baker announced his support for Hutchison on Tuesday. Former Vice President Dick Cheney also has endorsed Hutchison.

Hutchison is challenging Gov. Rick Perry in the March 2 Republican primary.
