Cruz, the "Texas Rubio," Wins Senate Primary

The vote is just in, and Ted Cruz, Tea Party favorite, has scored an upset win today over the mainstream GOP candidate, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurts--backed by Rick Perry--and is heavily favored to win in November over Democrat Paul Sadler, given the current political balance in the state.  The family of Cruz, like the parents of Marco Rubio, hail from Cuba and he will now draw much national attention--and watch him get major play at GOP convention.   Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint and the Club for Growth backed him fiercely.   Think Progress reviews his stands, including sounding the usual rightwing alarms about sharia law taking hold.
