Lon Burnam lost!!! :thewave His opponent is an unknown and not likely to be good on our issue, but at least they will not have the seniority of Burnam.

Senator Donna Campbell (Senate Dist. 25) won her primary against a lot of San Antonio (Straus country) money backing Novak.
Rep. George Lavendar (House Dist. 1), the "author" of the open-carry bill, lost.
Rep. Lance Gooden (House Dist. 4), very pro-gun, lost.

I feel good about Campbell winning. Was concerned about Novak and his crony backers.

Hate Patterson lost.

He talks a good game. Time will tell if he really means it and saw the error of his ways.

He's done more than talk a good game. He's voted with us on all issues.

District 1: Gary VanDeaver A-rated by NRA/TSRA Questionnaire
District 2: Stuart Spitzer A-rated by NRA/TSRA Questionnaire

We should be fine.

This was my first Republican Primary. Glad to see I got it right with Patterson.
On some philosophical level, I don't like the idea of being a single issue voter. But pro or anti 2A seems to pretty much sum up a candidates opinion of the voting public. I just can't get my self to pull the lever for a candidate who has such a low opinion of me as to think I shouldn't be able to exercise such a basic Constitutional right.
Keep talking guys, I'm listening.

I would like to see the pro gun/2A folks come out and show more support and have a bigger impact.


Further to what Charles said, I think it is a reminder of what a small percentage of folks have a CHL and are informed and active. Kind of sheds some light on how ineffective "boycotts" of anti-CHL businesses probably are. Maybe apathy is our biggest enemy.

I am proud to be a single issue voter

and

I am delighted, that here in Texas, there was a selection of Pro-2nd Amendment candidates running.
See you at the range

Looks like Cornyn stomped Stockman like a cochroach. I like that Seced Kilgore received 1% of the vote for Republican candidate for Governor. :bigear:

Good thing not all Cornyn supporters were as complacent and confident in an automatic win as some. ;-)

Conservatives Win Big!

March 5, 2014 by Michael Quinn Sullivan

Tuesday night’s results made for a very good morning for conservatives in Texas.

A few fast facts about last-night’s Republican primary:
•The most liberal Republican in the Texas Senate lost.
•Conservative ranks in the Senate are swelling.
•Every House conservative won re-election (with re-enforcements coming from the open-seat races).
•House incumbents affiliated with Speaker Joe Straus lost big.
•Statewide races saw the TFR-backed candidates earning commanding leads going into run-offs.

I like this comment from near the end of the article.
Indeed, Keffer’s “win” might be best considered “Pyrrhic,” as the resources sent to him translated into big losses elsewhere for Team Straus. By marshaling forces for Keffer, Straus lost Bennett Ratliff, Ralph Sheffield, Linda Harper-Brown, Diane Patrick and Lance Gooden. They were each soundly defeated by Matt Rinaldi, Molly White, Rodney Anderson, Tony Tinderholt and Stuart Spitzer, respectively.

Wendy Davis apparently got spanked by her own Dem voters. Wonderful.
