Some establishment Republicans had victories in last night's Texas primary, but in others, the Tea Party candidates were able to force runoffs.
FOX News Radio's Jessica Rosenthal reports:
Congressman Pete Sessions and U.S. Senator Jon Cornyn had Tea Party challengers during primary campaigns that moved well to the right. But in their cases, they easily won.
(Cornyn) "Texans continue to be practical in their approach. They're looking for solutions not just speeches."
Attorney General Greg Abbott cruised to victory in the Republican Primary for Governor. Tea Party challengers did force runoffs in some statewide races. The incumbent Lieutenant Governor will have to fight to be the Republican on the ballot in the general election. The Republican Attorney General candidate with the most Tea Party backing will also compete in a runoff.
