    Eighteen months ago, Ted Cruz was a starry-eyed Texas Republican with long-shot hopes of becoming a United States senator. On Tuesday, the former state solicitor general looks headed to an unlikely runoff victory over Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, win that would defy the power of the state’s GOP establishment. ((snip)) So how did Cruz stay competitive and even climb into what looks like the driver’s seat? He leveraged national acclaim from conservatives like Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and George Will into strong local tea party support, winning an impressive 34 percent of the primary vote and forcing a runoff against...

    From Congresswoman Adams: Governor Sarah Palin Endorses Conservative Sandy Adams for U.S. House Orlando, FL – Today, freshman Sandy Adams announced that she had earned the endorsement of former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential Nominee Sarah Palin. Governor Palin’s support is proof-positive that Sandy Adams is the conservative choice for Florida’s new 7th Congressional District. “Governor Sarah Palin has led the charge for conservatives,” said Adams. “While many politicians subscribe to the notion of the status quo, Governor Palin has risen above it. She knows that the true power of our country comes from the American people – not the...

    In an appearance on the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” on Tuesday, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity that the reason why she didn’t endorse presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney during a Las Vegas speech this weekend was because she couldn’t. The Daily Caller had pointed out on Tuesday that former Palin did not even mention Romney in her speech. But, Palin told Hannity, that doesn’t mean that the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee isn’t supporting the former Massachusetts governor. “There was a reason I did not mention Gov. Romney in my speech at the Americans for Prosperity Foundation event and...

    It was never going to be easy for Ted Cruz to force a runoff in the Texas Senate primary. “This race is Ground Zero between the moderate establishment and the conservative tidal wave,” Cruz said Tuesday at a Houston polling site, according to the Houston Chronicle. “The stakes are high.” “A runoff,” he added, “would be a tremendous victory.” Last night, the former Texas solicitor general got his wish, winning a spot in the runoff and a direct showdown with Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, who finished just short of the “ 50 percent plus one” threshold he needed to avoid...

    Maggie and Emily write this morning on the new role Sarah Palin has carved out for herself in 2012 politics, picking the races she gets involved in more carefully and seeking out opportunities where she can have (or appear to have) disproportionate impact: "This year, Palin has become almost irrelevant in the context of the presidential race she once had a chance to dominate, and is seen more than ever as a sideshow by the Republican establishment. But after seeing her celebrity peak last year, Palin has settled into a role as something of a strong Triple-A political ballplayer, picking...

    Ted Cruz won’t go to the U.S. Senate to get along in the U.S. Senate, the candidate told Gregg County Republicans on Wednesday in Longview. “We need to draw a line in the sand,” the Republican told some 40 party members, after recalling a Dallas Morning News editorial panel asking about the need for compromise in Washington, D.C. “At this point, I literally laughed out loud,” Cruz said. “If you’re looking for an established moderate who will go to Washington and work across the aisle and compromise, and continue this spending and building the debt deeper ...

Both Palin and her husband, Todd, pledge their support in a letter to Cruz, who hopes to replace retiring U.S. Sen.

She backed five candidates in Arizona, Florida and Alaska and they all won. The rest of the results from the evening defied easy matching. . . Palin now has more support for a favorite story line of hers: The pundits and so-called experts said things were going to go one way but she had faith; she knew the real deal. This is part of her larger pitch: that she understands something fundamental about conservative voters. That, in turn, is...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has used her Facebook page and Twitter feed to make high-profile and often winning endorsements in the 2010 cycle. But more than her 'batting average' for picking winners -- which many commentators have focused on -- it's her ability to totally change the dynamic of a given race that sets her apart not only from current GOP rivals but even most other politicos in recent memory. Whereas others can provide an incremental push to unknowns and incumbents alike, only Palin has demonstrated the ability to pluck a candidate from virtual obscurity and rocket them to...

    Sarah Palin got some push-back Wednesday, but not from one of her liberal critics in the "mainstream" media. No, it was a conservative -- and influential -- New Hampshire newspaper that tartly dismissed the former Alaska governor's recent endorsement of U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Ayotte. In a front-page editorial, New Hampshire Union Leader Publisher Joseph W. McQuaid wrote that Palin's endorsement should "neither surprise nor upset the other campaigns" since voters in the state are "rarely impressed by what outsiders have to say." Better pay attention: in a state that traditionally hosts the first presidential primary -- and will again...

    Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has thrown her support behind Todd Tiahrt in the GOP Senate primary in Kansas. In announcing her endorsement, Palin called the eight-term congressman from Goddard a "protector of our Constitution, a pro-family, pro-Second Amendment commonsense conservative who has never voted for a tax increase." Tiahrt is battling U.S. Rep Jerry Moran, Hays, in the Aug. 3 primary. "We can count on Todd to take on the liberal spending agenda of the Obama administration," Palin said.

    It’s a pink-letter year for Republican women. This season, more female GOP candidates than in any previous election cycle are running for national and state offices, beating the previous record year – 1994 – by 38 women. That’s a surprising development for the GOP. After all, this is the Party that as recently as last fall launched a “Republican Accomplishments” webpage and failed to include a single female representative, senator, Supreme Court justice, governor, cabinet member, or vice presidential candidate. Many would like to give the credit for the sudden rise of GOP women to that VP candidate. After all,...
