Incumbent Texas Governor Rick Perry wins the Texas Republican primary.
Perry got just 50.96 percent, which is a bit surprising. Kay Bailey Hutchinson got 30.46 percent, and the early Tea Party favorite, Debra Medina, came in third with 18.57 percent. Medina looked like she had momentum, but it all seemed to collapse after she wouldn't disavow Truther and Birther conspiracies on the Glen Beck program.
Which proves that those are NOT winning issues. Are you listening, Ron Paul crowd?
