Tea Party wins Wendy Davis’ Senate seat

November 6, 2014

 It looks as if Greg Abbott’s victory over Wendy Davis was a double whammy for the left in Texas for the Tea Party captured the seat which was vacated when she decided to run for governor.

  Here is more:

Burton’s campaign slogan had been “Take Back SD 10” and she took it back surrounded by 200-plus friends, family, and community supporters. Burton was declared the winner with 86,182 votes and 52.19% of the vote.

Senate District 10 has been a pivotal race statewide. The Burton win inches Republicans closer to an upper legislative chamber supermajority. According to a rule in the Texas Senate, two-thirds of the 31 member Senate, which equals 21 senators, must agree before a bill gets to the floor for debate. Burton’s win gives the Republicans 20 seats and puts that supermajority goal into a visible range.

 Closer to home, Burton’s victory put Senate District 10 back into the hands of an elected official who shares the conservative values as the majority of its constituents. Throughout her campaign, Burton promised to bring that conservative voice back to the district.

  Of course Battleground Texas has a long-term goal and they are not going to let this stop them in any way. They will regroup, find better candidates, hope for amnesty, and be back in 2016 stronger than ever. Texas Republicans had better be ready for them and they had better not take this victory for granted because this was just the opening salvo. If this group is successful in turning Texas blue the Republicans will never win another national election.

    It keeps getting sweeter. Same here with PA GOP. Wolf the Dem won, but the GOP is in full control and picked up seats.

      I love it! Glad to hear PA made out well. While the national elections in New Hampshire did not turn out great we did very well on the state level.
