Cruz Forces Runoff in Texas

David Dewhurst (R) and tea party darling Ted Cruz (R) were headed for another round in the Republican U.S. Senate race in Texas after Dewhurst fell shy of a majority vote in yesterday's primary, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Politico: "The outcome marks the third victory for anti-establishment GOP Senate candidates in as many weeks. Earlier this month, state Treasurer Richard Mourdock upended 36-year Sen. Dick Lugar in Indiana, and state Sen. Deb Fischer upset two better-known candidates in Nebraska."
