Does anyone remember what % of the vote that Ron Paul received in TX?


Whatever it was, I am sure Medina will do better! That means we are on the right direction, even if we don't win. We are trending in the positive which is better than what we had 5 or 10 years ago. Remember when most candidates of our ideology would only receive 1 or 2% of the vote?

Don't be discouraged by any outcome that we receive this evening. Coups happen overnight, revolution however takes years.

He meant the 2008 presidential primary. I believe it was 5%.

Paul is only in his district, not in TX overall. So can't even compare.

for sure not discouraged... angry we may have lost it about a month beck, errr bAck? sure... but c'mon, a serious liberty candidate for governor like Medina has not been seen "round these hur parts" in, hell, I can't remember...

for her to do well in the final results would be a step up...

Most votes received in any state by Ron Paul in 2008: 128,483 (Pennsylvania)

Medina is on track to beat that.

Medina is actually on track for about 1.6 million votes.

Pretty good.

I still think Medina vs. Hutchison would have been about tied without THE BECK.

If Beck wasn't dead to you before this, hopefully you've learned your lesson.

For the record, I've hated Beck since the very first time I saw him, when he did an interview with Sarah Palin (about 3-4 months before McCain picked her).

I feel I deserve bragging rights.

Kind of ambiguous what Matt's talking about. I think he means when RP Ran for Senate in Texas in 1984.

He got 17% of the vote then.

I actually just dug up an old newspaper story about the race: http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=mfsoAAAAIBAJ&sjid=jeEDAAAAIBAJ&pg=3582,1413437&dq=texas+1984+senate+republican+primary+results+ro n+paul&hl=en

Sorry - yes I was referring to the 2008 Presidential Primary

The point being is that it looks like Debra will receive almost TWICE what Ron received in 2008. The liberty movement is indeed catching on!

Considering that he had basically quit, not quit, quit, not quit, etc. several times and was mathematically eliminated by the time it was Texas' turn to vote, his low vote total isn't really a valid measure of his support IMO. There are a lot of folks who are not die hards and try to be practical voting for strategic reasons and not principle.
