Here’s an analysis of the Texas races for Senator and Governor by David Guenther, managing editor of the Lone Star Report. Guenther sees Republicans winning both. The Senate race was neck-in-neck most of the year, but Republican John Cornyn now is 12 points up in the Zogby poll. Particularly gratifying to me is Guenther’s suggestion that the defeat of Bush judicial nominee Priscilla Owen (a Texan) played an important role in the decline of Democrat Ron Kirk. However, Kirk’s biggest problems apparently have centered on the issue of Iraq, which is also gratifying. Guenther predicts a five to ten point victory for Cornyn.
