If you were only exposed to the web, you'd think Cornyn was on the ropes.  90% of Texas Republicans don't even know he's being challenged in the primary, and they're not going to vote for a no-name over a Senator they know and have supported overwhelmingly in the past.

Ted Cruz, in his race against David Dewhurst, had the backing of three large Tea Party groups and had amassed a large war chest.  None of Cornyn's opponents have any endorsements and they're all broke.  In addition, Steve Stockman is a joke. 

There won't be a runoff in the Senate race.
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

That reflects the online groupie "right-wing-bias."  They think "everybody" thinks like they do.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

I have nearly a majority of elected Senators and Congressmen who think like I do.  After 2014 it will be a majority.  How many do you have?

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....

From a source at least as credible as the one from which the lead post is quoting!

If it gets to a runoff Cornyn is TOAST!
