State Senator Don Huffines, Ron Paul supporter.

Well guys, it looks like Don Huffines, the founder of the pro Ron Paul 'Santa Rita Super PAC' is now the Texas State Senator from the great SD 16! The race was VERY close, and there may be a recount, but I think Huffines has pulled it off!!!

270 of 270 Precincts reporting 100.00%

John Carona - Incumbent 24,500 votes 49.36%
Don Huffines 25,136 50.63%

"1:45 a.m.: Don Huffines has etched a narrow win over longtime Republican Sen. John Carona, with all precincts reporting. The victory effectively ends Carona’s 24-year Texas Legislative career and blocks the incumbent’s hopes for a seventh Texas Senate term.

Carona still hasn’t conceded and Huffines’ slim 1.2-percentage point victory leaves Carona plenty of room to ask for a recount.

“I don’t know if we have anything to say tonight,” Carona campaign manager Mari Woodlief said early this morning.

Huffines, though, is celebrating.

“We think the election results are solid,” Huffines campaign manager Matt Langston said as Huffines made an overnight victory speech to a room full of happy supporters."

Great! Glad to see another

Great! Glad to see another victory. As far as vote rigging, I have no doubt that it happens frequently but you have to realize that they can't rig "all" of the votes (well, I guess they could but it would be too obvious). In most cases of vote rigging they can only sway the outcome by a few percentage points. Indeed, even this election may have had some rigging and the true count might have put Don 4% ahead of his current count.

Beware the cult of "government"...



GJ peeps!...

...You see!! Our voices CAN be heard, if we so will it!

GJ to everyone who made this happen! YOU are the change!

Onwards with Liberty!

Keep your eye on the prize! - Ending legal tender laws in order for the Federal Reserve System to self-destruct is of the upmost importance.

1:30AM victory speech after final vote tally

It was a long night, but lots to celebrate in what became the most contested senate race in Texas and a (expensive) battle for the heart of the Republican party. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz both supported the campaign with Rand even coming to rally and speak for Don.

I'm looking forward to Don being a voice for liberty in the Texas congress.

Yeah, it was nice of Rand to

Yeah, it was nice of Rand to help. I love having good news for a change.

I know many around here believe votes are rigged

How do those people explain this? If the powers that be were truly in control of elections, then why allow Huffines to beat Carona? Is the Texas senate just not important enough to rig elections?

I'm proud to say that I got out and voted for Don, and I do believe my vote was counted and that it mattered.

Yeah, those people only show

Yeah, those people only show up on articles about us losing. Debbie downers, your vote really did matter in this race. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for staying the course!

Wao wao, hang on there, Stonewaller....

"Yeah, those people only show up on articles about us losing."

Is that to say you don't believe in rigged elections, Sir?

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

I don't know what happens

I don't know what happens behind the scenes, all I am saying is some people say: "It is all rigged." emphases on "all"

I have not given up on voting yet because people like Huffines keep winning.

Sure, elections can be rigged, and votes can be tampered with. But Don Huffines would not have won this election if it was totally rigged.

I see what you're sayin'.

The lazy talk of "it's all rigged."

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Yessiree when we win, I hear

Yessiree when we win, I hear that people are waking up. When we lose I hear it's all rigged. We fight on regardless, and of course expose any corruption we see.

It would be too obvious

if all elections were rigged.

The race for comptroller was interesting.

Tuesday, one week ago:

Medina: 39 percent
Hilderbran: 26 percent
Hegar: 24 percent

Election Day:

Glenn Hegar 322,327 49.99%
Harvey Hilderbran 184,905 26.01%
