As I noted on Twitter, it is a strange dynamic for the folks in the Texas legislature: as it continues to look increasingly probable that David Dewhurst will lose the Republican runoff, every legislator has more of an incentive to promote Dewhurst's senate bid because he is more likely to return as Lt Guv.
We have particularly seen this in the last few weeks, as Republican legislators got much more vocal for Dewhurst when they realized Dewhurst was likely to be back for the next session.
Strange incentives, indeed.
