Overnight question: Since Dewhurst came close to a majority in a crowded field, what is Cruz’s path to victory in a run-off?

% Reporting 99.61
David Dewhurst – 44.59
Ted Cruz – 34.23
Tom Leppert – 13.33



While waiting for results to roll in, enjoy this video of Allen West smacking down some guy sent to track him, via Shark Tank, which has more background:

And, did you hear The One about the Polish Death Camps?


I’m pretty sure the polls close at 7 p.m. Central (an hour later in El Paso area, per a commenter).  Since Texas is a big country, I have to believe it will take a while for enough of the results to come in to see if there will be a run off between Ted Cruz and David Dewhurst.

Here’s the Texas Secretary of State official vote count page.  The Texas Tribune live results blog is here.

I’ll also use this as an open thread to update on the Aaron Walker situation, and other things that come along.
