Lubbock County Republican Party Chairman Discusses Texas Primary Results [Audio]

Rob Snyder,

Wednesday on Lubbock’s First News, Carl Tepper, Chairman of the Lubbock County Republican Party, talked about the results of the Texas primaries that were gathered Tuesday night.

Tepper gave an analysis on some of the major Republican races and candidates. He said for Congressional District 19 he had predicted 65% (he won 54%) of the vote for Randy Neugebauer, noting that those challenging an incumbent would need to more strongly work with an issue that voters can get behind. He said, “I can’t remember what the issue was to replace Randy,” suggesting this as the reason for Neugebauer’s reelection.

In the Senate races, Tepper believes Senator John Cornyn was vulnerable, but without a real competitor. He noted the importance of fundraising and allocating money to get a name out. Lack of money and money in the right place led predictions of the major name winners. He also observed that in the race for Attorney General, Ken Paxton should not be a part of the runoff. Tepper said the reason he moved on was based nearly only on Senator Ted Cruz’s positive comments.

Tepper also commented on other players in the races that didn’t quite make the cut and why. Get all the details by listening to the interview below.
