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.

Cornholio stabbed Cruz in the back.

Awesome.

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

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

We broken-glassers! Which tend to be TEA!

Polls aren’t opening in Travis Co. until 11am due to the winter weather advisory. Guess that means people voting on their lunch break will face heavy crowds, and people putting it off til after work, too.

Voted early and the line was out the door! Impressive for a mid-term early vote...not sure what it means though.

Ted Cruz was a virtual unknown cept in political circles here in Texas.

One of the best votes I've cast since Ronald Reagan.

Everyone has got to start somewhere and Stockman lost my support when he just...did the no show thang during a campaign. What? Throw your hat in the race and just expect my vote without articulating your position?

Not. If you find yourself in a runoff with Cornyn, then do a better job gettin the message out.

If Cornyn doesn’t get over 50% there is a run off election with his closest competitor.

Over at Breitbart Texas there are a couple articles in Stockman v. Stovall. I voted Stovall, but I’ll broken-glass vote Stockman if he forces Cornyn into a runoff.

If he does that is great news for the runoff. Even if Stovall is not in the runoff, I suspect very few of those voting Stovall today would consider voting Cornyn in the runoff.

I think you are right, if yard signage is any indication. Stovall signs very prominent in my community. I've only seen one Cornyn highway road sign near where I live. Stockman...Stockman, who?

I'm usually an early voter and went the first day of early voting. I couldn't wait to cast my vote against Johnnie boy.

His ad about standing against 0 bummer every day had me calling his Austin office with a middle finger salute message.

I usually give a politician a time or two to redeem a bad vote. Everyone has a bad day, everyone makes bad decisions now and again.

After a while, a pattern begins to emerge. Cornyn has proven to work against conservatives, joining with establishment fat cats on both sides of the aisle.

He’z history in my book.

Keep fishin from the same ol pond, gonna keep catchin the same ol big mouth bass.

While I'm at it. Kevin Brady, U.S. House of Representatives meets this same criteria.

Brady has voted time and again in support of liberal causes. Kevin Brady voted FOR John Boehner as speaker and went on to vote the wrong way on many critical pieces of legislation.

Craig McMichael is a war vet, four tours if I'm not mistaken. Small business owner and conservative to the bone.

Not much name recognition, but hope he does well against RINO Brady.

I’m in Minnesota and got an email from Rick Perry about his manlove for Cornyn.

What’s up with that guy?

Ok, just curious why Perry would be pimping for Cornyn out of state...
