Game Change: TDP Releases Statement on Paul Sadler Win and Likely Ted Cruz Victory

1

Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa released the following statement in response to the results of the Primary Runoff Elections, with Paul Sadler winning the Democratic nomination for US Senate and Ted Cruz seemingly on Cruz-control to win the Republican nomination:

“We could not be more excited to have Paul leading the Democratic ticket. Paul Sadler cares about Texans. He's got a proven track record of working to improve the lives of Texas children. While Ted Cruz and David Dewhurst were busy trying to out-right-wing each other, Sadler was talking about the issues that matter to middle class Texas.  We've got a real race on our hands.

“Tonight was the Republican Party's Thelma and Louise moment. It may feel pretty exhilarating now, but that landing's going to be hell. A Ted Cruz victory is the worst thing that could have happened to Texas Republicans. In spite of Dewhurst's millions, Perry's last minute pitches, and establishment support, Republicans nominated Cruz. It's a Tea-flavored mutiny, plain and simple. Now they're saddled with the Texas version of Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell. The inmates are running the asylum and middle class Texans are taking notice.”

Christine O'Donnell? Daaayum.
