John Cornyn easily won the Republican primary.  With 20% of the precincts in, he leads Steve Stockman 62-17%.

The AP has called the Congressional race between Pete Sessions and Katrina Pearson, with Sessions beating Pearson by a wide margin.

George P. Bush easily won his race for Land Commissioner, with 75% of the vote.

Greg Abbott won the GOP nomination for governor, garnering three times more votes than all the Democrat candidates combined.  Meanwhile, Wendy Davis only has 77% of the vote and has been declared the winner of the Democrat primary for governor., with challenger Ray Madrigal winning most of the counties in South Texas.

Dewhurst ran for the senate and was defeated by Ted Cruz, now he is being defeated by a conservative for Lt. Governor.  Certainly looks like his political days are on the wane.

It's all good, with the exception of Dan Patrick as Lt. Governor.  He and Dewhurst will likely be in a runoff, and Dewhurst will lose.

I'm not all that upset about Dewhurst losing, but I'd rather have Jerry Patterson in that position.  Patrick is the Steve King of Texas politics; you never know what he's going to say or do.

Yep.  He's done.  Patrick will win the runoff.

Cornyn winning without a runoff is huge, though.

It indicates the TP movement has dropped significantly in "favorability" just like several polls have found.

And it indicates the TP movement is narrow, but deep and loud. 

The wins in 2010 held great promise, but nada in 2012. And now nada in Texas in 2014, where one would think they held greatest appeal.

But the thing morphed from defeating democrats, to replacing Republicans with ACU ratings above 90. That reveals bad judgment, hence the loss of approval.

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

I'm glad to see Dewhurst on his last legs.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.
