Skip to comments.Palin, DeMint to rally for Ted Cruz in Houston on Friday (Tea Time)
Posted on 07/25/2012 5:20:14 PM PDT by Hojczyk
In case you need more proof that Cruz has a very real chance of pulling this upset, hes now got tea-party icons ready to spend political capital in person on pushing him over the top.
Sarah Palin is getting back on the campaign trail. Shell hit the road this Friday at an evening rally for Ted Cruz, Texas candidate for the U.S. Senate, at the Woodlands, north of Houston, his campaign and a Palin friend confirmed for ABC News
And its not just Palin. South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint will also be on hand for the 6 p.m. rally. Glenn Beck will be featured at another rally Thursday at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas and Rick Santorum will be campaigning with Cruz over the weekend, although the details are still being worked out
The former Alaska governor has a stellar GOP primary endorsement record so far this cycle. She backed Orrin Hatch in his Senate primary in Utah, Richard Mourdock in his primary against Dick Lugar in Indiana, and helped Deb Fischer with her surprise victory in Nebraska. She still has not formally endorsed Mitt Romney nor joined him on the campaign trail.
Even in Texas, tea partiers are outnumbered by non-tea partiers but not by much. According to PPPs poll taken two weeks ago, fully 40 percent of the electorate identifies as TP and Cruz utterly crushes Dewhurst among them, 71/26. Dewhurst, meanwhile, leads 57/34 among the 50 percent of Texas Republicans who say theyre non-TPers. Inviting Palin and DeMint is thus a no-brainer:
Not only is it a way to widen Cruzs already gigantic lead among TPers, its a fire alarm for those who havent paid much attention to the race yet (are there any conservatives in Texas who havent?)

Dirty Dewhurst is going down!
Palin and Demint for Cruz against all the GOPe’s in Texas
and DC for Dewpiss... Not a fair fight. Palin and Demint
should have their hands tied to make it a fairer fight.
The Grassroots vs the GOPe’s Astroturfers.
Cruz will crush Dewpiss.
DeMint is on Mark Levin’s show right now.
Just Christine O, this will be a loss for Palin.
Are you posting about the primary or the general?
By the way, Palin is the most effective endorser we have ever have, and her choice usually wins.
The GOPe’s Astrofurfers will be no match for Palin’s conservative Army.
Dewpiss has resorted to outright lies against Cruz.
Very similar to Lugar’s race.
Cruz ain’t COD.
