Ted Cruz looks like he is on the way to denying Dewhurst a victory, and will head to a runoff where it will be a one-on-one establishment vs. conservative battle:

Every time PPP polls Texas the Republican Senate primary gets closer and closer. What was a 29 point lead for David Dewhurst in September has now been cut all the way down to 12 points. Dewhurst is at 38% to 26% for Ted Cruz, 8% for Tom Leppert, and 7% for Craig James.

The key data point here is that among voters who are familiar with Cruz, he leads Dewhurst 39-34.  The more people get to know Cruz the more they like him.
