Texas Election 2014: The Primary Results


The results are in from the Texas Primary.  Here’s the scoreboard from the Texas Tribune

Yesterday, the conservative movement won some races, as did the establishment, but moderates were defeated.  A panel discussion about yesterday’s outcome from the Texas Tribune editorial staff can be found here.  The discussion starts about ten minutes into the video.

The New York Times reported conservative candidates inspired by Senator Ted Cruz failed to win over mainstream incumbents.

Texas voters sent many familiar faces back to the private sector.  The Texas Tribune has more about the officeholders that were sent home here.

The primary may be over, but the primary races are far from settled.  The next step is the runoffs on May 27.  A rundown of the runoffs from The Texas Tribune can be found here.
