Above: It all came to an end tonight for soft-on-illegals TX Lt. Gov Dewhurst.

by Brian Hayes | Top Right News

In tonights Republican primary runoff in Texas, pro-amnesty Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst (R) was crushed at the polls tonight, ending more than a decade in office. His unabashed tough-on-illegals opponent State Sen. Dan Patrick trounced him by a 2-to-1 margin.

Dewhurst, who was also defeated by now-Sen. Ted Cruz in a 2012 GOP runoff, has long been criticized by conservatives for his alleged suppression of Arizona-style legislation to bar sanctuary cities for illegal aliens, among other tough bills, in his presiding role over the TX Senate over the past decade.

Dewhurst has gone to great some would say unethical lengths to hide his past record supporting in-state tuition for illegal aliens, and even a guest worker amnesty for illegals.

As Breitbart reported in 2012, when his then-primary opponent Cruz exposed Dewhursts 2007 speech supporting amnesty for illegals, rather than owning up to it, Dewhurst had the entire speech removed from his official, taxpayer-funded Lt. Governors website. It didnt work, Cruz defeated him handily in the runoff.

Dewhursts opponent, State Sen., Dan Patrick, hammered him on the immigration issue this year, showing a willingness to do what Republicans around the nation have shied away from: express a clear opposition to any amnesty for illegal aliens.

Most Republicans in primaries this year have shied away from the immigration issue, in the face of pro-amnesty noises by House Speaker John Boehner, and the GOP-allied U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has demanded the GOP pass amnesty this year. And those candidates have done very poorly, such as Matt Bevin, the Tea Party-backed candidate trounced by Sen. Mitch McConnell, after Bevin expressed support for so-called immigration reform, and insulted American workers as less productive than illegal aliens.

By contrast, Patrick made his anti-illegal immigration positions the centerpiece of his campaign. This ad was a clear example:

It worked. Big time.

Tonight, the Associated Press has called the race for Patrick (R). As of this printing, Patrick leads Dewhurst by 65 percent to 34 percent with 81% percent of precincts reporting.

The GOP base is consistently, overwhelmingly against amnesty and demand that the border be secured before any talk of immigration reform: moves forward.

Let us see if the GOP establishments big drubbing tonight at the hands of an immigration hawk is noticed by other Republican candidates across the nation, and prods them to come out more strongly on the issue. As to the pro-amnesty RINOs like Boehner and the Chamber, they cannot be happy that their guy went down…hard.
