2014 primary season is underway!
The 2014 primary season officially began last night in the Lone Star state.
As predicted, Republican Greg Abbot, state attorney general, and Democrat Wendy Davis, state senator, both won their primaries and will advance to the November general election to replace longtime Republican Governor Rick Perry.
Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), former chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, defeated challeger Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX) and Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) defeated Katrina Pierson, founder of the Garland Tea Party.
Congressman Ralph Hall (R-TX), who is the oldest member of the House at at 90 years of age, failed to get 50.1% of the votes in the primary and will gon on to face a runoff election in May against John Ratcliffe, a former U.S. attorney who says Hall has been in Washington for too long.
When asked about the runoff, Hall says he predicts he'll win and says, "If not, I'll go work at Wal-Mart. I’ve got to have a job.”
