A cakewalk for Cruz when conservatives in Texas descended on neighborhoods with great support for him and broke a sweat to help him. This was BEFORE the late endorsements I might add.
Freedom Works and Jim De Mint were instrumental coming up with the the early money, a great cold cash injection and rallying a little DC help.
Mark Levin was the early endorser who turned some heads.
No doubt, the hard work done before the Big Guns came in set the stage for victory.
The biggest difference is how these Conservative Superpacs
helped level or as close to level the money advantage Dewhurst had. It helped counter-balance the money advantage
A Road map for Tea Party victory was tested in Texas and it
ALL came together. The hard work of grassroots, the conservative superpac money (leveled the playing field)
and the final help of Tea Party Big Guns. Of course, the most important of all, you had a credible, gifted candidate.
a credible candidate
You are trying to sell an anti-Palin fake history.
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.
The picture is very different when it comes to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who supports Cruz. PPP, a Democratic-leaning firm, found that 36 percent of Texas Republicans say Palins support would make them more likely to back a candidate, while 21 percent consider it a negative.
In every other state, Sarah Palins endorsement has been a game-changer, Cruz told Texas on the Potomac this afternoon.
Palin is the main game changer, just like in Nebraska.
Deb Fischer and Palins latest triumph
The intriguing nature of Fischers win is that the new GOP establishment, defined as the Club for Growth and Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, had endorsed Stenberg. Palin endorsed long-shot Fischer.
