Texas Republicans Get Ready for a Big Night

As the National Republicans continue to watch for a national tsunami (an overused descriptor, I'll limit its use tonight.),  Texas Republicans are ready for a pretty rockin' party as well out at the Texas Disposal Systems Exotic Game Ranch near Creedmoor.  

Governor Rick Perry, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and just about every state-wide republican is expected to win tonight.  The party is also hopes to expand it's control of the Texas House by knocking off a few Democrats there.  

Governor Perry's staff say if he wins, they expect a speech around 10 p.m.  Although in honor of speech writing superstitions a victory, concession AND "we don't know who won yet" speech has been written and is ready to go.
