The Texas primary elections were held yesterday and it's now official. Wendy Davis is the Democratic Party nominee for governor.
She cruised to victory over Ray Madrigal of Corpus Christi to become the first Democratic female gubernatorial nominee since Ann Richards did so in 1990 and 1994.
Meanwhile, as expected, Greg Abbott did the same on the Teapublican side.
So now the hard part begins of getting her elected. Now that the Repugs have stopped slinging mud at each other, they are going to turn up the GOP Noise Machine to full blast and break out the lies in their attempt to hold onto the governor's mansion.
We have eight months to go.
