For what ever reason Ron Paul had to face three Republicans for the Texas 14th Congressional district seat. Paul won with 80.7% of the vote. Here is the breakdown, Ron Paul – 45,947 votes – 80.76% John Gay – 3,003 votes – 5.27% Tim Graney – 5,536 votes – 9.73% Gerald D. Wall – 2,402 votes – 4.22%

I am not worried about Paul. He will do fine. Texas loves their Ron Paul...and so does a lot of the rest of the country. I can tell you this much...if he had lost the primary...I would have been all over him to get him to come to my state. We could use him. But hten I think that would started a free for all....a lot of states could use and want Ron Paul.

I do not understand why he had primary opposition. Also why did this post get tagged mature content. Sure I think we should all be mature here on MyLot but that is not the mature that tag is referring about.

I have no idea how the mature content tag got on there. I did not put it. I usually don't tag my responses. As for why he had opposition....there are some in the republican party that don't like him and would like nothing better than to get him out of office. But it looks like a HUGE majority of his district don't agree...I am glad. We need more poeple like Ron Paul in office...not fewer.

Oh I was not saying you placed the tag, the tag got place right after I posted this discussion. I did some studying about Ron Paul, back in 96 the National Republican party supported a former Democrat, Greg Laughlin instead of Ron Paul. This included George H.W. Bush and Newt Gingrich.

Ron Paul is one of a kind and his constituents know that they've got the best congressman in the country. I think his opponents were trying to capitalize on the anti-incumbent fever going on right now, but they chose the wrong guy to challenge. If he'd lost I think he'd have an easy time running for senator in Texas which I'd be happy to see as it would give him a stronger voice in policy. FYI, I think it was auto-flagged as mature content because one of the candidates had the last name "Gay" lol.

Oh my I did not realize that. Thank you for noticing and letting me know. I could not figure out why MyLot tagged the discussion mature.
