Texas Democrats on Ted Cruz victory: The inmates are running the asylum

•, By Eric W. Dolan

Texas Democrats mocked former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz on Tuesday after it was announced the tea party candidate had won the state’s Republican primary race for Senate.

“Tonight was the Republican Party’s Thelma and Louise moment,” Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa said. “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.”

Cruz defeated establishment favorite Texas Lieutenant Gov. David Dewhurst.
“In spite of Dewhurst’s millions, Perry’s last minute pitches, and establishment support, Republicans nominated Cruz. It’s a Tea-flavored munity, 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.”
