TEA Party candidate defeats RINO in Texas!

A reason for celebration!

Yesterday, TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party candidate Ted Cruz won  the Senate Republican primary runoff election in Texas!

The Christian Science Monitor reports:
Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz upset Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst in a Republican primary runoff for an open U.S. Senate seat, the Texas Tribune projected on Tuesday.
Cruz, 41, a former state solicitor general who has never held elected office, is the third insurgent Republican this year to defeat an establishment Republican in a U.S. Senate primary.
Dewhurst, 66, a wealthy businessman who had the support of top Texas Republicans, including Governor Rick Perry, started the race as the front-runner. But Cruz drew support from conservative stars like former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and money from national conservative groups like the Club for Growth.
“Ted Cruz won because he clearly articulated the pro-growth message that Republican voters across the country have responded to,” Club for Growth President Chris Chocolasaid in a statement. Club for Growth’s political action committee spent $5.5 million to support Cruz, the organization said.
The Senate seat is being vacated by Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison. Cruz, whose father is from Cuba, would become the first Hispanic U.S. senator from Texas if he defeats the Democratic nominee in November. Texas has not elected a Democrat to statewide office since 1994.
The Texas Tribune also projected that Paul Sadler won the Democratic U.S. Senate primary runoff on Tuesday.
Dewhurst, who presides over the state Senate, spent $19 million of his own money on the race, his campaign said. The former state land commissioner has served in the U.S. Air Force and worked for the Central Intelligence Agency. He dismissed Cruz as not having enough experience and running a campaign that depended on groups from outside Texas.
Cruz, a Houston lawyer, said Dewhurst is not conservative enough and compromised too much with Democrats in the state Senate.

Let’s hope Cruz’s win is the beginning of a gigantic surge and groundswell to retake our country on November 6th!

  1. I had the pleasure of voting for Ted Cruz last week in early voting. You would not believe the mud slung at him from Dewhurst, yet he still prevailed. Hopefully, this is a sign of more good things to come!

     
  2. I just returned from “Restoring Love” in Dallas and heard Ted speak at the FreePac event. He says all the right things. Pray he remains true to the people who worked so hard to send him to Washington and joins Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Ron Johnson, Mike Tooney, Jim DeMint and other true conservtives to restore this once great nation. Too many Republicans wimp out when facing hard decisions and I want our leaders to know loyal Americans do have their back!

     
  3. Way to go, Texas! Good news at a time when good news is rare. Let’s hope this is a sign of things to come. Terry, work on Florida for us.

  8. This is good!
    And Palin supported him. That’s enough for the SRM to keep assaulting her…

     
  9. That Chess graphic is sensational! For some reason I instantly associated the pawn with the last standing Spartan at the battle of Thermopylae.
    Never, never never never never never give up!
