Cruz Defeats Dewhurst in Texas

Ted Cruz (R) defeated Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst (R) in the Republican U.S. Senate runoff, the AP reports.

"The Texas contest has become a national emblem of the GOP's internal tug-of-war between the establishment and the tea party and already is the most expensive non-presidential race in the country, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Outside groups spent $14.4 million in the race on top of the $32 million that the candidates spent, including the $19 million that Dewhurst lent to his campaign."

Dallas Morning News: "Wow, this is going to send some shockwaves through the GOP -- in Texas and across the country."
