RUSH: The Politico notes that Dewhurst finished 11 points ahead of Cruz in the primary and was seen as the prohibitive favorite. What does that matter now?
All that means is you should never believe the news media when they call anyone a prohibitive favorite. They had Dewhurst up by 11 points. They thought this was in the tank. And Cruz wins by 13. Don’t believe the polls. The media, Politico, whoever, had no desire for Ted Cruz to win this. It’s never, ever good news for the news media when the Tea Party wins elections.
