Cornyn crushes Stockman in Texas primary

posted at 10:01 pm on March 4, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

A strange one, this. Rep. Steve Stockman said (sometimes ghost-tweeted) fiery things, but never really bothered to run a campaign, as far as anyone was able to tell:

Texas Sen. John Cornyn easily won his Republican Senate primary Tuesday, crushing firebrand challenger Rep. Steve Stockman on a Tuesday that was shaping up to be good for the GOP establishment.

As the kick-off of the 2014 primary season, the Texas races have not shaped up into the test of the GOP establishment that some activists hoped for, partly because of the weakness of the tea party challengers. The first truly competitive Senate primaries won’t come until early May, when the speaker of North Carolina’s state House faces a spirited challenge from the right and two Nebraska Republicans square off in an ideological battle for an open seat…

Cornyn now faces only token Democratic opposition for a third term in the Senate. Stockman, who jumped into the race just before the filing deadline but never ran an aggressive campaign and alienated many in the tea party, conceded quickly.

“We wish Senator Cornyn [the] best of luck in November and urge everyone to vote for, volunteer for and support the whole Texas GOP ticket,” Stockman tweeted just after The Associated Press called the race for Cornyn, with only about 2 percent of precincts reporting.

The scene on the ground in Texas was…odd:

It was easy to portray Stockman’s campaign as just some kind of hustle or strange performance art—-the marriage of Andy Kaufman and Michele Bachmann. The Texas congressman seemed to be invisible on the campaign trail… and everywhere else. At one point, he hadn’t made a public appearance for weeks while his staff refused to respond to basic inquiries. Instead, the Texas congressman limited his interactions to the public to ghostwritten tweets by his communications director and blast emails attacking Cornyn in BIG CAPITOL LETTERS…

Stockman’s campaign has repeatedly claimed endorsements that it did not receive. In January, his campaign’s website had a section called “past and present endorsements.” It was heavy on the “past endorsements,” including that of a conservative activist who had been dead for months.

Stockman’s campaign has also recently sent out a press release claiming that he had been endorsed by the head of a prominent Tea Party group. He hadn’t been and the quote he cited was three months old. His campaign has also explicitly lied about its rare interactions with reporters and published fake newspapers that featured insanely outrageous claims “Stockman’s Sanctity of Life Act Overturns Roe v. Wade” while managing to violate campaign finance laws at the same time.

Perhaps the ultimate chutzpah is Stockman’s campaign is now issuing threats that “any person or media organization” that publishes Stockman’s mugshot from a 1977 arrest when the Texas congressman was caught trying to smuggle valium in his underpants into jail to serve a weekend sentence.

And, what of the quixotic quest of Wendy Davis? Neither she nor Attorney General Greg Abbott faced serious competition for their respective party nominations in the gubernatorial race. She won the primary. Also:

Then there’s this:

The AP also declared victory for incumbent U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady, in the Republican primary, and for George P. Bush in the Republican primary race for Texas land commissioner.

Why do they keep saying Stockman was the Tea Party Candidate when it was Duane Stovall? I still say Karl Rove threw in Stockman, who even Republicans reportedly don’t like.

I voted Stovall, just out of duty. Ted Cruz candidates Paxon and Kelli Bruner (in my area) are also killing it. Not crazy about Dan Patrick, I think his mouth will get him in trouble. George P Bush! Landslide!

Anyone who followed the race saw that coming from 10 miles a way. It is time for tea party to start getting wise about the people that uses their name to make a political name for themselves. At this point any two bit salesman with no money and in need of support calls themselves tea party. And rarely does anyone say stfu. So it cheapens the brand and this happens.

Stockman is a nutball. Came out claiming in the past several days that Tea Party Patriots had endorsed him, and they immediately responded that they had not. Stockman was all over Twitter calling Cornyn a liberal and I had to laugh. Cornyn was named most conservative member of the Senate in 2012.

Longtime US Rep. Ralph Hall, 90, faces runoff
Mar. 4, 2014 9:57 PM EST
*************************

ROCKWALL, Texas (AP) — The oldest member of the U.S. House will face a runoff election as he seeks to return to Congress for an 18th and final term.

U.S. Rep Ralph Hall of Texas did not win 50 percent of the vote Tuesday night in the Republican primary in Texas’ 4th Congressional District, which stretches from Rockwall north and east toward Sherman and Texarkana. He’ll face challenger John Ratcliffe in a May 27 runoff.

The 90-year-old Hall is a World War II veteran who has served in Congress since 1980. He’s declared that this year’s re-election campaign will be his last.

Ratcliffe is a former U.S. attorney during the George W. Bush administration and mayor of the North Texas town of Heath.

and for George P. Bush in the Republican primary race for Texas land commissioner.

So George P. Bush, having been born rich and aimless, has apparently decided that working for a living, serving his country or church, or living a life of private peace — none of that is for him. He wants to use his wealth and famous name to garner personal power and make more money the sleazy way – in politics.

Swell.

1. He’s not that despised. Before he was a Senator he was Chief Justice of a very Conservative Texas Supreme Court and he’s still respected for that.

2. Ted Cruz or Palin made no waves for any opposition to him.

I voted against him just because I thought he needed spanking with a runoff. As Mark Davis said, no Republican Texas Senator has never been “fired” and Ted Cruz wouldn’t be IN the Senate if Kay Bailey hadn’t left voluntarily.

I’m glad Debra Medina is getting trounced.

Look for her to run as an “independent tea partier” against Greg Abbot. Or turn against him.

You need to read the tweets below the picture. Lots of things going on in that picture.

And yet you claim your idiot rants speak for many.

I so wanted at least a runoff for Cornyn. Voted against the Bushie, and against Dewherst (for Patterson).

Are you saying you don’t enjoy the consistent rants of the one-trick pony?

That is a strange photo. Isn’t that a teleprompter in front of Obie?

She wore that pony out a long time ago. And she is too stupid to find another.

For some insight to the Ted Cruz phenomena… Cruz beat the party line Dewhurst for the Senate. Dewhurst is now running for re-elect in his same job as Lt. Gov. Dewhurst is -at this moment- trailing the TEA Party endorsed challenger by 42-28.

In other Republican statewide offices in Texas, the TEA Party endorsed seem to be the leaders.

I guess so! Apparently, Cruz and Palin endorsed her, and she didn’t even get close.
