73. Did Connecticut elect him governor? Is Texas going to start issuing H1-B visas to import...
a new crop of foreign born RW bullshit politicians?

Massachussets might not be part of Texas, but the 7th congressional district of Texas certainly is, and those are the sorry fuckers who put him into his first elected office.

If anything this shows that the Texas electorate is willing to vote for even outsider "yankees" as long as they're fucked up RW nutbags enough.
