Texas' Rick Perry Wins Big with Anti-Washington Tea Party Theme

Hosted by

US Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison started out as a favorite to topple Texas Governor Rick Perry in yesterday's Republican primary. It didn't turn out that way, and the Tea Party candidate, Debra Medina, failed to get enough votes to force a run-off. After ten years as Governor, the longest tenure in Texas history, Perry now faces the former Mayor of Houston, Democrat Bill White. Wayne Slater is political writer for the Dallas Morning News.
