Cruz is pro-life and gave exactly the same response to the abortion question as did Dewhurst.
Dewhurst has run slimy, false ads against Cruz, placing his desperate desire for office above any sense of personal integrity. Hence, he is basically a dirtbag.
Regardless of questionnaires, Cruz won’t answer my questions when I put them to him in person.
I questioned my friends about their endorsement for Dewhurst last November, when I was still endorsing Cruz.
We were all at the convention of the Texas Federation of Republican Women in Fort Worth. Almost immediately, I ran into Mr. Cruz’ staff. A little later that day, I talked to Cruz himself. All were hostile to my wishes that they would not engage in the negative ad campaign they were already running on the Internet. Dewhurst hadn’t put out any negative ads, yet — but the ones Cruz was using were half truths and innuendos.
In addition, Cruz won’t explain the course he sees for the Nation after Roe is overturned - but I can’t tell whether it’s because he doesn’t believe it will be overturned or because he doesn’t believe I’ll like his plan. He changes the subject.
Nevertheless, in both conversations, Cruz and staff became hostile toward me for asking them not to tear down a good Conservative man.
After this scenario - face to face attempts at conversation and persuasion — was repeated in February at the Comal County Republican Forum, I changed my endorsement and sent a donation to Dewhurst.
