Texas GOP Primary Results

The polls closed at 7pm Central time, 8pm Eastern time. I’ll provide updates on the GOP Senate race as election returns become available from the Texas Secretary of State. All updates are Central time. The key to this race is keeping Dewhurst under 50%. That will trigger a run-off at the end of July, between Dewhurst and Cruz.
