Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz won the Republican nomination for the US Senate seat in Texas that is being vacated by Kay Baily Hutchinson.

Most people see that in terms of the fact that he is supported by the Tea Party.

That may be short term, but long term I think that the main thing about it is that it represents the success of another Hispanic American in and through the Republican Party.

I see that as a good thing.   Good for the Republican Party's effort to broaden its base.  It will be good for the country if both of its major political parties have more of a multiracial constituency.
