Republican Debra Medina's campaign for Texas governor went on damage control yesterday after a disastrous Glenn Beck interview in which she refused to deny that she believes the US government was behind the 9/11 attacks. "There's some very good arguments and I think the American people have not seen all the evidence, so I've not taken a position," the candidate told Beck.

Medina put out a statement soon after denying any links to the "9/11 truther" movement, the Christian Science Monitor reports. Her rivals for the GOP nomination were quick to attack her comments. Medina had shot from 4% to 24% in the polls in recent weeks, but Beck figured the rise may be over. "I think I can write her off the list," he scoffed after thanking Medina for the interview. " Wow, the fastest way back to 4%." (More truther stories.)
