If there is a run-off wonder who’ll get the Leppert vote?

I voted Dewhurst.

Dewhurst is a good conservative. He’s been painted as a moderate by some tea party groups and got Palin’s endorsement, but I like Dewhurst.

Where can I get a live update?

In order for a runoff to happen, Dewhurst has to stay under 50%, right?

I wonder if we all signed up at DU and talked about how we should not support Obama because he was not pure enough, if people would have the sense to check our signup dates?

Now is the time to quit this childlike bull crap and get behind Romney. I cannot understand the willingness to put Romney down and get King Obama for another four. Where in the hell do we get these fools.

I happen to agree with you. But letting them pout and vent serves one very useful purpose: It undermines the attempts of the pro-commie media to paint Romney as a right-wing extremist. You know they’ll try.

“He should make the speech of a lifetime and reach out to the tea party folks and other conservatives that usually fight to keep candidates like HIM out of DC.”

Why should he? Those of us that are conservative didn’t vote for the fool in the primary. Nor will many of us in the general election. He was elected by the GOPe. He is their candidate. Except for lower offices, like the House and Senate...this election is over for true conservatives. Romney doesn’t nor will ever represent us or our values. It is the acme of foolishness to think otherwise.

Greta didn't say where it came from, but it was Breaking News with a gong and everything!

Reince Preibus was just on, maybe he told her, LOL

Or it came from the munchkins in "America's Election HQ" looking at where the votes have come in from already and otherwise crunching the numbers... I guess we'll find out if she is right.

Look, friend, don’t waste another second on these very few tunnel vision folks that blab hatred for Mitt Romney on this and other sites. There are two kinds of folks in this world. Strategic thinkers and Tunnel Vision fools that really and truely believe that cutting off their noses to spite their faces is a wise and justified move. Fortunately, they are a tiny minority. Forget them, they amount to nothing.

You want to concentrate on a needed victory, vote for Cruz and against Dewhurst, come the upcoming July runoff. Forget these few naysayers. You waste valuable time and words on a lost cause. Forget ‘em!!! ABO!!!

The NYT chart shows Romney with enough delegates but does he have the delegates? Ron Paul has a lot more delegates than the NYT chart shows.

The last count I saw Romney was still 400 short!

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

I'll tell you what could go wrong....0bama appoints Holder to the Supreme Court.

Or if you don't like that 0bama could appoint Arne Duncan

Or if you still don't like that 0bama could appoint John Holdren

So go ahead vote for 0bama. What could go wrong? At least he isn't Romney.

Boooooooooooo! How dang depressing. Stupid GOPe.....well you are stuck with him now. Good Luck....hopefully you have a plan. I definitely won’t be sending him a dime, passing out pamphlets, or evening voting for the turd. I vote in Pennsylvania....hopefully GOPe has enough votes for Romney since they wanted him so badly....dumb GOPe.

With half the vote in Dewhurst is not that far from 50% (46) but it looks like it’s going to a runoff with Cruz. The third place Leppert will probably back Dewhurst but conservative heavy hitters can help Cruz beat Dewhurst 1 on 1.

Michael Williams unfortunately finished way down the pack in his House primary. Roger Williams finished first, lots of candidates vying for second place.
