Tea party darling Ted Cruz convincingly defeated the Republican establishment favorite, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, in Texas' runoff election Tuesday, capturing the GOP nomination to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison as fiercely conservative voters shook one of America's reddest states to its political core.

You got that right!
This should also serve to put John Cornyn on notice.
GOOD JOB TEXAS!!!! I hope the GOPe now realize that we mean business. I am sure they had an idea this was going to happen when Sara entered the picture. The sooner they realize that they are not going to ruin the Republican party, the easier it is going to be for us to get this country back on the right track after the disaster we now have.
Could it be the rapid cinching of RINO sphincters?
Please TEA me, Bro!
Good things are happening here in Texas!!!
Exactly! John Cornyn better watch out because he’s going to be primaried when his time comes. I can’t wait to kick him out of office and put a conservative in office with Cruz.
That’s because Texans are willing to fight for what’s right.
It was not easy, the GOPe pulled out every trick in the book.
The TEA Party was never dead, we just didn’t like a lot of the swarmies that tried to claim to “lead” and of course in a few minutes many of those will try claiming “they lead against Dewhurst”. We don’t need no stinkin leaders.
Paraphrasing our “Constitution”
“We the people....” dont need no stinkin leaders who are not for the values that our forefathers entrusted “we the people” with.
“Texas gop chooses tea party backed cruz for gop senate nomination?”
Were they asking or telling?
While great things are happening here in Texas, I will be away from the computer for a short time while I run into town to get a breakfast from Chick-Fil-A.
Yes, great things are happening here in Texas. I’m headed to Chick fil A here Dallas with my kids for lunch today. I’m expecting it to be full!!
It should serve to put a lot of TX RINOs on notice.
I'd be more impressed of the country clubbers were shook down to their gulf cleats. They have no political core.
Nor do we Tea Party folk need any wildeyed libertarian types running in and trying to claim movement leadership. No one ask us and we sure a hell never asked them!
Chick-Fil-A has regular breakfast items, chicken is just one of the offerings.
In the South, chicken is an anytime food. Many breakfast buffets have fried chicken on the food bars.
But Cruz has a fiery stage presence that made tea party supporters across the state swoon
Always the subtle little dig. Always the implication that Tea Partiers are something less than rational.
I hope that PETE OLSON is paying attention.
I dunno man, I’ve been living in the South a damn pile of years and the only chicken I’ve ever seen on Breakfast buffet is chicken embryos.
Maybe in South FLA. Which really ain’t the SOUTH.
No biggy, the important thing is the queers saw today that lots of Americans support CFA. It was almost 2 hour wait around lunch. That’s OK too, cause making a political statement is rarely easy.
