    Dewhurst's Allies Are Throwing The Kitchen Sink At Cruz: The main super PAC supporting Dewhurst, the Texas Conservatives Fund, released a harsh new TV ad on Tuesday which can be best described as a political Hail Mary Pass. The spot ties Cruz to the suicide of a teenager (the boy's mother is featured in the ad) who served time in a juvenile detention center. But to say the connection is a stretch would be an understatement. Cruz defended a Pennsylvania developer in a judicial but not a corruption......

    AUSTIN — Gov. Rick Perry gave a full-throated defense of the conservative bona fides of Senate GOP hopeful David Dewhurst on Monday, blasting the main political group supporting Dewhurst’s rival, Ted Cruz. The governor also raised the specter that a Cruz victory could hurt the prospects of the state’s soon-to-be senior senator, John Cornyn. “Craft me a conservative with a more conservative voting record than David Dewhurst, and we can have a conversation,” Perry said after he and Dewhurst cast early votes together at an Austin supermarket. “But there’s not one.” [Snip] He warned that Club for Growth is promoting...

    As Texans and Conservatives, we know how important this Senate race is. The rest of the country needs to understand how it will impact them as well. We have Ted Cruz, a Reagan Conservative who, as Solicitor General of Texas, has fought not only the United Nations and the World Court, but also the Obama regime, while defending both Texas and United States sovereignty which were under attack. Ted Cruz exemplifies the Texas spirit and is a champion of Liberty and Freedom. He’s served Texas well and will be an asset for the nation. We are fighting to stop current...
  • Texas: Dewhurst accepts debate with Cruz at last minute

    07/20/2012 7:39:19 AM PDT · by rstrahan · 17 replies
    From the Dallas Morning News (no link) Dewhurst accepted a debate at the last minute with Cruz at a Tea Party event. There is strong evidence that Dewhurst's constant harping on China connections and negative ads are hurting Dewhurst, and that he has lost the conservatives in Texas. It has gotten so bad that the jokes are along the line of " Ted Cruz supports theChinese. He was seen at a Panda drive-through". Not one ad by Dewhurst giving a positive reason to vote for him.

    I have always had a lot of respect for the guys who are running David Dewhurst’s campaign, but I’m starting to see now why Rick Perry had no chance of getting elected President. The same team running Dewhurst’s campaign ran Perry’s Presidential campaign and has stooped to what I thought would be an impossible low. Contra the headline at, David Dewhurst actually raised less money than Ted Cruz. Dewhurst had to pump over $4 million into his campaign to save face and win the media spin that he outpaced Cruz. In fact, Cruz has raised $1.7 million and Dewhurst...

    "For the first time in their long campaign slog, independent polls are showing the so-called movement candidate, tea party favorite Ted Cruz, leading the GOP establishment favorite, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. They are trying to replace Kay Bailey Hutchison in the U.S. Senate and face off once again in the July 31 runoff election. “If less than a million people vote and Cruz wins, he’s likely to have coattails,” said Mustafa Tameez, a Houston political consultant. “He’ll pull in a lot of the movement candidates.” Cruz has insisted all along that his supporters have the enthusiasm, and a new survey...

    Publioc Policy Polling ^ | July 12, 2012 | Tom Jensen
    PPP's first poll of the Texas Senate runoff finds Ted Cruz with a surprising 49-44 lead and a much more enthusiastic cadre of supporters than former front runner David Dewhurst. Cruz's lead expands to a whooping 59-36 margin over Dewhurst among voters who describe themselves as 'very excited' about voting in the election. The lower turnout is, the better Cruz's chances will be. Dewhurst leads 51-43 with 'somewhat excited' voters and 50-36 with those who say they are 'not that excited.' The big question is whether those less enthused folks will actually bother to turn out or not. This race...

    By DAVID CATANESE | 7/12/12 11:39 AM EDT The Republican pollster that signaled Dick Lugar’s demise and Deb Fischer’s late surge is now flagging an upset in the making in the Texas Senate race. Tea party favorite Ted Cruz is leading Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst 47 percent to 38 percent in the GOP runoff, according to a new survey by the Columbus, Ohio-based Wenzel Strategies. The numbers directly conflict with the latest findings by Dewhurst’s camp, which released a poll Wednesday placing their candidate ahead by 8 percentage points, 50 percent to 42 percent. A Cruz campaign internal poll last...

    What else is he hiding? Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst’s Senate campaign might have just crossed a line it should not have crossed. Who else would be behind the Lt. Governor’s taxpayer funded website for his Lieutenant Governor’s Office suddenly deleting the transcript of a speech proving David Dewhurst has been lying about his position on illegal aliens? The speech is . . . well . . . it is gone. Poof. Again, the website is taxpayer funded and the document suddenly no longer there directly contradicted Dewhurst’s present statements on immigration in the Senate campaign. Now, David Dewhurst adamantly...

    If the Chronicle is Endorsing Dewhurst because Ted Cruz is too Conservative Republican then Cruz is the guy for me!   Editorial: Who should fill Hutchison's boots? Houston Chronicle Tuesday, May 15, 2012 There's a torrid race in the Texas Republican primary to replace a Washingtonmonument. U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, the first woman to represent the state of Texasin the Senate, is retiring after three-plus terms of service in the world's most exclusive club. Given a magic wand, we'd order up a replacement who would blend the skills ofHutchison with those of Lloyd Bentsen - with just...

    Earlier this year, the big race I was involved in was to help get black, super conservative, Republican State Rep James White re-elected after White was attacked by Speaker Joe Straus via redistricting. White ended up beating a Straus Chairman, Mike "Tuffy" Hamilton. Now my focus has shifted to the US Senate race. This race is very important. It is a runoff election between David Dewhurst and Ted Cruz. The Runoff Election Day is July 31st, 2012. Texas MUST elect Ted Cruz for US Senate July 31st! Let me first say that I do not hate David Dewhurst or think he is a liberal or a bad...

    Ted Cruz calls Obama's back-door amnesty "cravenly political, lawless, and wrong" Those are the strong words spoken by Ted Cruz and we couldn't agree more!In case you missed the news last week, President Obama announced a new back-door amnesty plan for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. This is outrageous and political pandering at its worst.  In an obvious move to gain favor with Latino voters, President Obama is abusing his power as president and turning the White House into a campaign office for his reelection.  We must secure our borders and ensure that the laws of the land...

    If money talks in politics, conservative activists are shouting that the hotly contested U.S. Senate runoff between conservative insurgent Ted Cruz and Austin powerhouse David Dewhurst is the most important Republican race in the country. Federal Election Commission records analyzed by the Houston Chronicle indicate Cruz, the former Texas solicitor general who has targeted his own party's establishment in a noisy nomination battle, has raked in more money from conservative super PACs than any other Senate candidate in the nation: $3.8 million. While Dewhurst, the state's lieutenant governor and the early favorite, has raised more than 90 percent of his...

    The addition of former Perry presidential campaign spokesman Mark Miner to Senate hopeful David Dewhurst’s campaign means that the three most important positions in the Dewhurst bid to go to Washington are held by Perry people. Dewhurst, who’s in a battle with former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz for Texas’ open U.S. Senate seat, has former Perry strategist Dave Carney as his senior campaign adviser. A pro-Dewhurst super PAC, Texas Conservatives Fund, is run by Rob Johnson, who managed Perry’s 2010 re-election campaign and worked in his failed presidential effort in the 2012 cycle. Miner, another Perry presidential campaign worker...
