Mary Landrieu Loses Senate Reelection Bid in Louisiana to Republican Challenger Bill Cassidy

Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy defeated Democratic incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu in Saturday's Louisiana Senate run-off race.

Under Louisiana's primary system, all candidates appear on the same ballot, despite political party. None of the candidates received 50% of the vote in the November 4th election, forcing this run-off election.   Read more »

Kolkhorst Wins Texas Senate Seat in Special Election

After a whirlwind campaign, Rep. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, on Saturday night defeated four other candidates in a special election for a State Senate seat just vacated by the state's next Comptroller. Former Sen. Glenn Hegar, R-Katy, resigned the seat that represents a huge area spanning from Katy to Brenham to the coast.

Kolkhorst was able to win 55 percent of the vote, with her closest competitor Gary Gates receiving only 34 percent of the vote. The fact that Kolkhorst received over 50 percent means there will be no runoff and she is now Senator-Elect. The election happened quickly enough that Kolkhorst will be sworn in as a senator as the Legislature convenes in January.   Read more »

Special Election for Texas Senate Seat Turns Nasty

The following story originally appeared on The Quorum Report.

BRENHAM – The mad dash to succeed Comptroller-Elect Glenn Hegar in the Texas Senate has turned quite negative in the final days leading up to this Saturday’s special election. The perceived frontrunner, Rep. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, has sought to create a sense of inevitability through high-profile endorsements and has focused her message on border security.   Read more »

Republican Party of Texas Chairman’s November Update

Republican Party of Texas - The big news for November was our crushing defeat of the Democratic ticket. To paraphrase the popular song "All I Do is Win", ALL THE TEXAS GOP DOES IS WIN, WIN, WIN!

All the reasons that the Republican ticket totally crushed the Democratic ticket would take several pages to write. The Democrats, and particularly Battleground Texas, made many obvious errors and miscalculations this year, while the RPT, Governor-elect Abbott, and the rest of the statewide ticket’s battle plan worked to near perfection.   Read more »

Landrieu's Last Gasp!

The recent Senate vote on Keystone was the Democrats' way of sticking to one of their own, Mary Landrieu. In a desperate move to save Mary Landrieu’s career and pull out what now appears an insurmountable lead by her opponent Bill Cassidy, Harry Reid scheduled a vote on the Keystone pipeline to give Mary Landrieu one last chance to show she has clout and maybe by a miracle save her Senate seat.   Read more »

Red Revolution 2014 - Let Freedom Ring

It seems we got the attention of the Democrats and Liberals when America flashed RED on November 4. Some are still in disbelief or in total shock and are responding accordingly. The liberal pundits say this will help Hillary Clinton in her presidential run. I say nothing can help Hillary with all her baggage, Benghazi is way too heavy a bag to dismiss. The NYT editorial claims Republicans won on Negativity.   Read more »

Texas Republican Outreach Works!

Republican Party of Texas - We recently sent out an email congratulating the engagement staff at the Republican Party of Texas for their hard work in the election that helped Senator John Cornyn win the Hispanic vote in Texas, as well as help Governor-elect Abbott and Lt. Governor Patrick win the male Hispanic vote in Texas and split the Hispanic vote overall.

Texas Judicial Races - Strong Conservatives Win

On October 18th the Republican Club of Comal County had the distinct pleasure of hosting its 5th Annual Fundraiser with some very special speakers seeking judicial benches. The statewide nominees were Justice Jeff Boyd for Texas Supreme Court Place 7, Judge Bert Richardson Court of Criminal Appeals #3, David Newell Court of Criminal Appeals #9, and Kevin Yeary Court of Criminal Appeals #4. With the exception of now

Breaking Down the Election on WFAA

The way some of the down-ballot races in Texas played out this past week put a fine point on just how powerful a wave the GOP was riding heading into Tuesday’s election.

Not only did Republicans sweep every statewide race, which was expected, but their margin of victory was way higher than even the party’s leadership expected. Right before the vote, Texas Republican Party Chairman Steve Munisteri had said he wouldn’t be surprised to see Attorney General Greg Abbott beat Sen. Wendy Davis

TEXAS REMAINS RED – Battleground Texas turns Livid!

Conservatism is not dead in Texas! How fantastic is it that Texas remained RED in spite of the fact that Battleground Texas worked so hard to defeat the Republicans, to erase our Conservative Values. After twelve years of Governor Rick Perry, Texas remained strong and reelected another Republican, Greg Abbott, who defeated Abortion Wendy Davis statewide with a devastating blow of 59.28% to her weak 38.88%. Abbott said, “Whether you voted for me, against me or didn’t vote at all, I’m going to work every single day to keep Texas the best state in the United States of America.” And no matter how hard Davis tried to hide her abortion agenda she just never got away from it. In fact, Davis did not even win Liberal Bexar County, Abbot 49.74% to her 48.42%.   Read more »
