#3 On Texas politions going to the national level, the Texas Tea Party didn't have a lot of luck overwhelming the established GOP backed candidates yesterday. But they did get candidates enough votes to get into July 31 runoffs.
However, on the state level, they trounced many state level incumbants with thier candidates. Bad thing is, this could widen the gulf between national Texas figures in the US Congress and state level figures in Austin.
