May 10— Sarah Palin has weighed in on the fiercely competitive Texas Senate primary race with an endorsement of Ted Cruz, the tea-party-backed candidate announced on his website Thursday.
Mr. Cruz, pulling 26 percent of likely Republican voters in the latest Public Policy Polling survey, is hoping to finish well enough in the May 29 Texas GOP primary to make it into a July 31 runoff with Mr. Dewhurst, who is comfortably in first with 38 percent.
========== Dewhurst leads Cruz in the PPP poll, 46 percent to 29 percent.
Agreed, but the Tea Party will not be recognized until it has actual members and with that some clout.
I would register as a Tea Party member.
