Tea Party Scores Big Win in Texas

Dan Patrick (R), "riding a wave of tea-party populism from relative obscurity as a Houston radio talk-show host to statewide prominence in just eight years, defeated incumbent David Dewhurst Tuesday to win the Republican nomination to become Texas' next lieutenant governor," the Houston Chronicle reports.

Austin American-Statesman: "Patrick's victory was a stunning achievement, far exceeding Cruz's thrashing of Dewhurst in the 2012 runoff for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Kay Bailey Hutchison."
