IMO Dewhurst put $money and organization into early voting.
Cruz will benefit from the 1-on-1 race, but Dewhurst is a more natural home for Leppert voters. Cruz will benefit from a more conservative electorate in the runoff, but Dewhurst still likely has the organizational advantage.
I think in the final days Dewhurst went negative against Leppert...maybe that will de-motivate Leppert himself and maybe even some of his voters for jumping onto the Dewhurst bandwagon.
I think all things considered, I’d rather be the insurgent here...especially with Palin, Club for Growth, and Jim DeMint. Cruz might just well take this!!!
Dewhurst outspent Cruz 5 to 1. Cruz will likely attract some serious Tea Party money for the runoff.
