Republicans rule Texas!!!
Perry and all his current top henchmen won --- that was expected
Not one Republican incumbent was removed from office.
Approx. 23 incumbent Democrats lost their House Seats in the state, while approx. 5 Federal House Reps lost their DC seats.
Most Texans voted Republican.
In elections with no incumbent running, ALL the candidates who won are Republicans.
Incumbent District 45 Rep. Patrick Rose who acquired the largest contributions of any House candidate, more than 1 million dollars, LOST to newbie non-politician Jason Isaac.
Finally, Republican Texas is in a great position for the 2012 Presidential Election having added seats at the state and DC levels. Perry is sure to try his hand at a DC position in 2012. For Texans, the next 4 years will be financially difficult, with Perry and his band of merry legislators doing pretty much whatever they want.
