Silvestre Reyes (D, TX-16) defeated in primary.

It was a bit of a surprise, yesterday: long-term Texas Democratic incumbent Silvestre Reyes was taken down in a primary yesterday. Early reports are crediting the Campaign for Primary Responsibility (CPA), an ostensibly non-partisan anti-incumbent group, for the upset.  Fortunately, Reyes is frankly a loss neither to our side (long-notorious PMA porker) nor the Left’s (heavy-handed War on Some Drugs booster).  And alas, but the district is pretty heavily Democratic, so the news just guts the Democrats of one more experienced politician when they’re going to need every one they can get their hands on next year.

Yes.  This is my sad face.
