    Being anti-establishment is so cool these days. :clap2:

    Texas GOP chooses tea party-backed Cruz for Senate - Yahoo! News

    Open thread: Texas; Update: AP calls it for Cruz « Hot Air

    Via NRO-

    "Says Dan Foster of NRO, “This is how you make the Senate more conservative, primary a guy in a safe seat with an excellent challenger. This is the anti-Delaware ’10.” I’ll bet Cruz is already being slotted for a speech at the convention."

    I would not bet against that.

    Republicans turn out for their WORST, stay home when the best run. No doubt turnout will be massive for this tea freak.

    tea freak? When will people learn that the Tea Party represents regular people who are tired of paying for people who take. Did you fail to learn anything in 2010, and Wisconsin? Apparently.

    Well wait a darn minute...I'm just sure I saw a few threads recently about how the TP was dead and buried, no longer relevant...a distant memory. Hmm...

    How many people posting on this topic actually live in Texas and know anything about Cruz, Dewhurst and this race outside of what you read from partisan sources? I do live in Texas and I can tell you what turned the race for Cruz at least in my opinion was the over the top negative ads by Dewhurst. This is something both sides should pay attention to this time it seems the negative ads cost the candidate and I think it could be a sign of things to come in November.

    Freak? Really? So if I asked you to critique the Tea Party platform of constitutionality, limited government, low taxes, and free markets, your answer would be what? "You're a Mr poopy pants"?

    Good point however a Senate seat is a little bigger of a deal than some rinky-dink House seat. There are clearly some national implications to not just taking back the Senate but taking it back in a way that matters.

    Money and negative ads are the present, past and future.

    We are still a center right Republic. It would be nice to have a center right Congress, Court and POTUS to go along with it.
