GOP Sen. Bob Deuell rejects ‘liberal’ label hurled by primary rival Sharon Russell

The Dallas Morning News. Sen. Bob Deuell, chairman of the chamber’s Republican Caucus and one of the more conservative members of the Senate, never expected to be attacked as liberal in his re-election bid this year.

But that’s exactly what he’s facing in his GOP primary contest against an opponent with Tea Party support.

No one in the Senate would classify Deuell as liberal, but Rowlett Republican Sharon Russell – like other Tea Party supporters challenging veteran Republicans around the state – has tried to make that label stick as she campaigns to upset the incumbent.
