I'm not sure if they can force Cornyn to a run-off. I hope so, but if he just manages to squeak by, it will still have a big affect on the upcoming primaries in KY, TENN, MISS, and SC.

Also, will Ralph Hall be retired, finally...?

Will Pete Sessions finally get to move to Florida?...hopefully he can play golf there with Boehner full time next year.

Weather in TX? Someone in the Army during WWII quipped that Texas was the only place where you could be slogging through the mud and have sand blow in your face!

Cornyn will win in a landslide.

The weather in Houston is horrible, ken5050. Temps right at 32 degrees, rain freezing on trees and elevated structures (like overpasses!). It was a sloppy, white knuckle commute this morning. Good news is, the rain is supposed to stop and the temp should rise above freezing by noon.

The wife and I will venture out to the polls this evening to do our part.

Polls in central Texas (Austin Metro area) are opening late due to the overnight ice storm. Most of them are in schools, and since the schools are opening late, so are the polls. No word yet on whether they'll stay open later than planned to make up for the late start.

Make sure to get out and vote.

There are 6 propositions on the ballot.
One of them is to repeal the business franchise tax.
The propositions didn’t get much air time this go round.

I want to see Sessions, Cornyn, Veasey (to Sanchez), Patrick (my local TX Rep, losing to Tinderholt) & Dewhurst go down. But, I will only feel some real disappointment if Patrick survives. The BITCH is really anti-Tea Party!

Anybody But Cornyn.

We’ll settle on one person later- just force the run-off now.

I early voted last week. No line (I went to a different polling center than where I normally early vote which almost ALWAYS has a line). There was a steady flow of people though.

It’s a rich Democrat area but my friend and I voted in the GOP primary without any stares.

I took a look at the Democrat ballot while waiting for my friend to finish. They don’t have as many challengers for the major offices (and no incumbents, natch).

I wonder if the LaRouchian woman is going to get the Democrat Senate nomination.

I early voted early. About 7 machines and only 3 had users.

Weather caused accidents on the I35 autobahn so going was slow. It should warm up to the 40’s today, so that might bring out more voters.

Cornhole needs the votes of city folks, so I don’t think the weather will affect the vote to much in the cities.

Voted in Hill Country at about 10:30. There was only signage for local and county candidates; no statewide. Poll workers outnumbered voters. Two voters voting no Cornyn, No Dewhurst, No Bush.

It would be grand if Cornyn didn’t even make it to the runoff. Is that hoping too much?
