There are many different ways for political consultants to measure success in the general election in Texas in 2014. The conventional measuring stick called winning percentage isn’t one of them though in a state where all of the Republican strategists who had clients on the ballot tied in that statistical category with perfect records at the polling plate.
In a deeply conservative state like Texas, Republican Dan Patrick was heavily favored to defeat his Democrat opponent, Leticia Van de Putte, in the race to be Texas’ next Lieutenant Governor; especially, as many political observers predicted, a Republican advantage against the backdrop of President Obama’s plummeting popularity.
The two lieutenant governor candidates are respectively sitting on multimillion-dollar war chests that will provide each the opportunity to splurge big on television ads heading into the final weeks of the election.
