Today was the day for the Texas run-off between TEA Party favorite Ted Cruz and Establishment-backed David Dewhurst. I’ve been covering it over on Truth Before Dishonor. David Dewhurst had run one of the nastiest, lie-filled, “kill the enemy” campaign I’ve seen (clearly along the same lines as Obama’s likewise lie-filled campaign), and it blew up in his face.
As of right now, with 95 percent of the precincts reporting in, Ted Cruz leads David Dewhurst 57-43, and a 143,000 vote lead.
And Barack Obama’s claim that he sees Texas becoming a swing state in the near future? The Democrats had their own little run-off, selecting their sacrificial lamb who will be led to the slaughter. Paul Sadler, winning the honors with 63 percent of the Democrat vote (94 percent reporting), has barely 147,000 votes. That’s what? 15 percent of the total Republican votes?
Meet your next US Senator from the Great State of Texas! Ted Cruz!
