Let's keep our momentum going - all aboard to our next big battle!

If you feel like we do, you are still buzzing from our historic victory in Wisconsin and can feel that we have momentum on our side!

While we have a full head of steam, we must re-focus this tremendous energy on our next big battle - the runoff election for U.S. Senate in Texas between Tea Party conservative Ted Cruz and  moderate Republican establishment candidate David Dewhurst.

Tea Party Express endorsed and conservative Texas U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz was successful in holding David Dewhurst under 50% of the vote forcing a runoff election between the two on July 31st.

The runoff will be a battle between the moderate establishment Republican vs. the Tea Party conservative.

We hope to build on our new momentum ahead of the runoff, and raise enough money to help the Ted Cruz campaign combat the smear campaign funded by the personal resources of millionaire David Dewhurst. 

Dewhurst remains personally wealthy, well-connected and we have no reason to believe that he will let up on the low-blows and lies that we saw from his campaign the last couple of weeks.

We need all Tea Party members to coalesce behind Ted Cruz, as we did behind Wisconsin's Gov. Walker.  This is the next great Tea Party battle and we will prove the critics wrong again!

Your passion is why we are where we are today!

This campaign has always been about taking our country back, restoring the Constitution and returning our government to “We, the people.”  Now, for the next 2 months, the battle is on. The runoff is July 31, and we need conservatives more united than ever.

In the closing weeks of the campaign, our support surged with the endorsements of Gov. Sarah Palin, Sen. Rick Santorum, Congressman Ron Paul, and Sean Hannity, in addition to the support off Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Rand Paul, and many others.

We need you to stand with us united in this runoff to defeat career politicians clinging to power. The battle is on, and liberty is at stake.

Ted Cruz speaking at our rally in San Antonio, TX last month
If you haven't heard about Ted Cruz, here is a little about why we have endorsed him and are fighting to send him to Washington:
Ted Cruz is a self-professed child of the Reagan revolution.  His parents fled Cuba after experiencing an oppressive government and instilled in Ted a profound respect and appreciation for freedom.  He understands that it is not our government that makes America run, but our entrepreneurial spirit.  He made money as a kid by reciting the Constitution from memory to Rotary Clubs in Texas and giving speeches on free-market economics.
As Solicitor General of Texas from 2003-2008, Cruz authored 80 U.S. Supreme Court briefs and personally argued 40 oral arguments, including 9 before the Supreme Court.  Named “a Republican star rising in Texas” and “a great Reaganite hope” by the National Review, Ted Cruz has led the fight against Obama’s offshore drilling moratorium and for private property rights for Americans.  His “Growth and Jobs Agenda” promotes a limited government plan that pledges to repeal ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank, kill Cap and Trade, and dramatically simplify the tax code.

We were honored to travel around the great state of Texas with him last month to endorse his campaign and hope that you will be as excited as we are about his candidacy. 

We have a great candidate that we all need to support to send him to Washington!

One of Tea Party Express’ top priorities in 2012 is to elect a conservative majority to the U.S. Senate, and thanks to patriots like Ted Cruz, we are well on our way to doing just that.  But we need your support if we are going to be successful and finish the work we all started in 2010.

Attn: Tea Party Express Please get behind Jesse Kelly in AZ-8CD. Special election for Gabby Giffords seat. A loss of Giffords seat by the Democrats would be another body blow to failed POTUS, Obama. Go Tea Party and Go, Jesse Kelly!!!

Some more info including early voting dates. If we want Ted to win then publicizing early voting dates on conservative web sites should generate votes.

If a registered voter did not vote in the Primary they may vote in either party’s Run-Off election. Eligible Texans who are not registered to vote must register by July 2, 2012 to vote in the July 31st Run-Off election.

re Jesse Kelly AZ

MAF PAC (sister group to TPX) endorsed and sent some money to Kelly in support of his run.

He's on of those candidates that has been influenced by the GOP to not align with the Tea Party.

Same kind of thing happened with Kleeflich (Lt Gov) in Micigan on our last tour through WI

She wised up and realized that throwing the Tea Party under the bus is not good for electability (in spite of the scardy cat GOP says) and she spoke at one of our rallies last week when we were in WI.

Of course, she and Walker (who has never been shy about liking the Tea Party) beat the sleazy Obama/Union/Leftist/Democrat recall.

Thanks for the post and information.

We need to get the democrat out of this seat if at all possible.

This Jesse Kelly CD8 race in Tucson, etc. is very important. If Ron Barber loses this race to Kelly, it will be another devastating body blow to failed POTUS Obama. I just wish other Freepers, etc. would jump on this race with the gusto they put forth for Scott Walker. Why: Because IMHO, if Kelly wins the seat, Obama will surely lose Arizona, come November, 2012!!! My fingers are crossed and prayers flowing for Kelly and America.

I sure hope Kelly knocks her out of that seat.

The TPX is concentrating on the Senate this cycle so aren't working on House races.
