Felipe Reyna did not survive the onslaught of Ellis County District Court Judge Al Scoggins, who trounced the 10th Court of Appeals judge at the polls Tuesday.

Scoggins raised $25,000 in the past three weeks to fund his challenge in the GOP primary for the spot on the Waco bench. No Democrat filed for the race.

The battle was a tough one for Reyna, who saw the powerhouses of judicial politics line up behind his opponent — the Texas Medical Association, Texans for Lawsuit Reform, Texas Civil Justice League, and former Supreme Court justices Craig Enoch, Tom Phillips, Eugene Cook, and Scott Brister, to name a few. Monday, he filed an initial proceeding in a defamation lawsuit against a Longview doctor and two political action committees supporting his opponent.

Our full primary results are available on the 2010 elections landing page.
