Tony Sanchez crushed Dan Morales in the Democratic primary for the gubernatorial nomination. This wasn't a surprise. What was a surprise was that Ken Bensten failed to make the runoff in the three-way race for the Senate nomination. The unsinkable Victor Morales, who did essentially no campaigning, came in first with 34% of the vote, followed by former Dallas mayor Ron Kirk at 32% and Congressman Ken Bentsen at 27%.
I voted for Bentsen, which was a tough choice since I like all three candidates. I'm leaning towards Morales in the runoff but will have to think about it. Congrats to all the winners. I remain excited about Democratic prospects in November.Posted by Charles Kuffner on March 13, 2002 to Election 2002
