WI: Ron Paul defeated Phil Gramm in the 1984 GOP Texas Senate Primary

The only way I see Paul getting a senate nomination is absent a primary runoff system, and in a heavily divided field where he comes in with a plurality below thirty percent of the vote. But Texas had a very well-established system of runoffs, at least as far back as 'Landslide Lyndon'.

Nowhere go on this one.

Eh, I could see Paul winning a Senate nomination in like the 2000's if the Dems are presiding over the War on Terror and provoking a libertarian/paleoconservative backlash.

That said he almost certainly can't win the 1984 primary.
