Four county DFW #txsen results
If you haven't seen the Texas Tribune's map of how Texas voted in the #txsen primary, it's a great way to visualize the data. Incidentally, I'd argue that a map of election day vote will have the highest prediction value for the runoff. It'd even be interesting to which counties swung the most to Cruz between the early voting period and election day.
Let's look at results from runoff battleground DFW. Cruz led the region, followed fairly closely by Dewhurst. In 3rd place in all the big DFW counties was Leppert -- a bad harbinger for another statewide office, and perhaps not even a good sign for another more regional office.
Leppert didn't even get 2nd place in his own county where people saw him in action as mayor. That doesn't hold well for any future run.
Tarrant County (Fort Worth)
Leppert got the endorsement of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. It didn't matter much. Still in 3rd place.
Collin (Dallas suburbs/Plano)
Collin County would be almost as much home territory as Dallas or Leppert. He still got 3rd.
Denton (DFW suburbs on FW side)
