    Tea-Party-Backed Cruz Wins Texas Senate GOP Runoff

    Tea-Party-Backed Ted Cruz Wins Senate GOP Runoff in Texas - WSJ.com

    I suspect that Dewhurst's highly negative campaign turned a lot of people against him.

    As the National Review put it:

    ...Mr. Dewhurst’s vulgar and dishonest campaign of scorched-earth ad hominem against Mr. Cruz raises serious questions about his judgment and his commitment to conservative values. Yes, Ted Cruz for Texas - The Editors - National Review Online

    I didn't think the good ole teaparty was part of the GOP.
    How many elections can the GOP loose for us?

    Who is us? Your lean is other.

    The Tea Party isn't part of the GOP just like the NRA isn't either. However, both I think supported Cruz.

    I voted for Dewhurst during the primary but changed to Cruz during the run off. After conducting more research on the two candidates I found Dewhurst to be more of a RINO. Cruz seemed to support the values of conservative Texans, conservative Americans.

    Dewhurst is the epitome of a Rhino and Cruz is a excellent candidate.

    Senators who attempt to straight-up ignore the constitution and declare that Congress and the President can just be bypassed? Yeah, ok, whatever.

    As the National Review put it:
    Cruz is another RINO.... That little RINO idiot supports another blanket amnesty (among other policies)....

    Cruz can go play in the sandbox with the other progressives.
