    Cruz in Texas was outspent 3 to 1 and still soundly defeated the establishment opponent. 57/43

    As a rule, they're bought. That doesn't mean every single time....

    I just thought it was relative to all the accusations that Romney is buying the election.

    The best that could be said is that this particular election was not bought.

    One election out of how many proves your theory?

    Show us 50 elections where this happened and maybe we'll believe it.

    Christie won despite being out spent by the NJEA. Its a sign all elections cannot be bought.

    I think it would be more accurate to say; "The Election is being bought for him".
