Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who has largely stayed out of the primary fray this year, stars in a new ad from Senate Conservatives Fund backing T.W. Shannon in the Oklahoma GOP primary for Senate.

Shannon faces Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla., and several lesser known candidates in Tuesday’s primary. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., is resigning at the end of this Congress, leaving the seat open.

“In Oklahoma, there are a number of good Senate candidates, but T.W. Shannon is a conservative fighter,” Cruz says in the ad.

“He has the courage to look Washington insiders in the eye, and say, ‘I don’t work for you, I work for the people of Oklahoma,’ ” Cruz goes on.

The 30-second ad begins running Thursday and will stay on the  air through primary day. The ad is backed by a $163,429 buy, according to SCF.

Shannon is one of just two Senate candidates Cruz has endorsed this cycle. The Texas Senator appeared at a rally for him in April.

"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

 

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

 

"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792

 

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

 

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

What? Ted Cruz must not have noticed that TW Shannon is Black. The Democrat media has declared that Republican conservatives hate Blacks. They’ll have to say that Cruz is not a conservative, or that Shannon is not Black.
