Romney opens wide lead in Texas
Romney, Cruz take large early leads in Texas voting
Early presidential returns in Texas showed Republican Mitt Romney shellacking the president, 65 percent to 33 percent. The results -- 415,000 to 209,000 -- reflected ballots cast prior to election day.
That's almost the identical margin that GOP candidate Ted Cruz had over his Democratic rival, Paul Sadler, in their race for the U.S. Senate. Cruz would be the first hispanic elected to the Senate from Texas. He would replace Kay Bailey Hutchison, who elected to retire from Congress.
