One positive side effect for the huge Texas Tea Party wins coming
tonight is it may serve to “Buck Up” conservatives in other states
like Mississippi and my home state of Tennessee.

Especially Mississippi, since their primaries are only a week or two
away. It could provide a big needed boost. At least I am hoping so.

I’m not keen on Patrick but Dewhurst definitely needs to get on down the road.

I voted today. The guy at the Democrat Run-off table was very lonely. Everyone was voting in the Republican Run-off here in SmallTown, Central TX.

I voted Patrick, Paxton, Miller, and Christian. There was also a runoff for TX state Rep. I voted for Murr, and then there was a run off for County Judge here, too.

FWIW, Dewhurst carried my County by 65% in the Primary, and I am guessing unless turnout is low here, that Dewhurst will carry this County again.

“I’ll be happy if Dewhurst gets run off.”

+1

I’d be ecstatic if Ryan Sitton (RRC). He’s an engineer with the technical knowledge needed there. Very important.

If you examine the results of Cruz’ victory in the runoff, you’ll feel a lot better.

Texans do NOT appreciate extremely negative campaigning, which is all Dewhurst knows how to do.

Voted.

Dewhurst's negative campaign will not win him the election. He should look into a new campaign manager, if there's any elective office left for him to run for.

I can’t see how anyone can vote for dewdrop. Is it just mindless name recognition or what?

The property tax increases are relentless. Why should it take another 10% each year to run the government? Because if they can get it they will spend it.

Property taxes easily out strip the house payment already.

I know. I went to his last concert in Dallas and bought a t-shirt. I stood in line to get it autographed. I shook his hand and introduced myself as his lone conservative fan. He said, “Aw, that’s sweet, hon. You’re probably right.” (*snort*)

As for the dem side, I ran into Kinky Friedman at the grocery store again yesterday. We shook hands and exchanged pleasantries but he seemed a bit shaky and looked mighty frail. He’s 70 and has never won an election. I don’t see him winning the runoff for Ag commissioner on the dem side. His whole campaign is based on trying to legalize marijuana and to champion hemp production as a water saving tactic verses cotton production. I’m sure he’ll get lots of votes in Austin.

You think after he got that whopping 27 votes when he ran for Sheriff here years ago...Anyhow, I can remember him saying that as Ag Commissioner, he'd start a program to promote Texas Agricultural Products.

I thought what Rock have you been under since 1999 when the "Go Texan!" Program was started by the Lone Star State?

He still has time to wise up, though :)

Just voted in Magnolia. With the stormy weather and a light turn-out election at best, I figure my vote counts a bunch. Voted for Dan Patrick because Dewhurst is the other name on the ballot, and voted for Paxton enthusiastically.

Kinky came in 1% point behind the other candidate who I know nothing about.
That maybe about the max vote he can get.
