WASHINGTON — Tuesday’s primaries will pit the tea party’s ardor for change against the staying power of two GOP leaders in Congress, Sen. John Cornyn and Dallas Rep. Pete Sessions.

Both are deeply conservative. Both face challengers who complain that when it comes to fighting Democrats, the incumbents are more bluster than action.

Senator Dewhurst might disagree. Let’s see the actual vote totals rather than left-wing media spin.

Anybody but Cornyn. Just force a runoff; that’s the key.

How dare this paper or write call these two posers “deeply conservative”? That’s a flat-out lie!

"Both are deeply conservative. Or NOT!"

They've fooled people for so long by always sitting back and waiting to see how votes are going to go... and then if they see a Conservative issue is going to fail, they'll vote for it to chalk up their supposedly "solid record". They're frauds. They're never going to take the initiative on anything.

Take a stand- get every Conservative in TX out to vote against these poseurs.

Watching the Texas races closely from afar.

Sadly, I don’t have a vote in Texas, but from what I’ve read on FR about Stovall, IMHO you’re making an excellent choice and that’s how I’d vote if I could (so you and other like-minded Texans are kinda voting for me, too :-)

When the Dallas Snooze is beating its drums for you, it’s a sure sign you are not a conservative, much less a “deep” one.

ROFLMAO. Both are pro-amnesty.

Cornholio wants to “fix” Obamacare, not repeal it.

Awesome.

Have your Conservative friends, family members, etc. voted yet? If not, let 'em know.

I thought the correct term was “severely conservative”.

If they are up against just ONE challenger then there is a chance. If the primary votes are split, there is no chance.
