Kay Bailey Hutchinson's U.S. senate seat is up for grabs.  After a bitterly contested runoff election there are now only two left to battle for it.

Cruz vs Dewhurst was being watched around the country as a bell weather of sorts for the Republicans; Dewhurst the 'establishment' candidate, Cruz leaning towards the Tea Party.

Ted Cruz won the runoff election last night and will now look forward to his Democratic opponent, Rep. Paul Saddler.  They will face off during November's general election.

Here's hoping that contest is fought out with a bit more civility.
