The battle of Indian ended in massive defeat for the Establishment. Now the battle of Texas has become. tea Party Economic Conservative Ted Cruz is battling The Establishment candidate David Dewhurst. Progressive Big Government Republican Mike Huackbee has endorsed Dewhurts.
This morning, Governor Mike Huckabee announced his support of David Dewhurst, calling him a “strong fiscal conservative, with a record to show for it,” and saying “Huck PAC and I are pleased to endorse Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst for U.S. Senate from Texas.”
“He’s been an ardent supporter of legislation to create new jobs and improve the economy of Texas,” said Governor Huckabee. “Lt. Governor Dewhurst helped pass the largest tax cut in state history, not to mention he’s balanced every budget since taking office. As a result, Texas’ economy has grown faster than the national economy and more Texans are employed than at any other time in our state’s history.”
Sarah Palin has come out in support of Ted Cruz.
AUSTIN—Just four days before the start of early voting in the Texas Senate primary, the Ted Cruz campaign announced the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin and her husband Todd Palin.
In response to a letter from Ted Cruz, Governor Sarah Palin wrote: “We’re proud to join conservatives in Texas and throughout the nation in supporting your campaign to become the next Senator from the Lone Star State.”
“Your conservative principles, passionate defense of our Constitution and our free market system come at a time when these cornerstones of our freedom and prosperity are under attack,” Governor Palin added. “Our shared goal isn’t just to change the majority in control of the Senate, but to assure principled conservatives like you are there to fight for us.”
Ted Cruz responded, “Governor Palin has been an inspiration to conservatives across Texas and across the Nation. She is principled and passionate and never afraid to speak truth to establishment power. I am humbled and honored to have Governor Palin’s support as we fight to restore fiscal sanity to the circus that is Washington. With Governor Palin’s support, and the support of tens of thousands of conservatives from all across Texas, we will turn our country around, rein in out-of-control spending and debt in Washington, and restore the Constitution.”
I hope Ted Cruz pulls it and the establishments suffers another defeat. Ted Cruz is a viable conservative for the general election and would win handily in November.
