With internal polls showing Ted Cruz with a lead, the GOPressive elites are in panic mode. Texas state legislators, came out attacking Ted Cruz. Clearly they are nervous and that’s a good sign.
The Texas Republican establishment on Sunday came out hard against former state Solicitor General Ted Cruz (R) in his upstart Senate bid.
Nearly every state Senator signed an open letter addressed to “Fellow Texans” that offered a defense of Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who is running against Cruz in a July 31 GOP primary runoff to replace retiring Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R).
The letter never once mentions Cruz by name. But it makes clear the state Senators’ displeasure with statements he has made on sanctuary cities, state spending, the state’s Transportation Security Administration “Anti-Groping” bill and a state income tax.
Ted Cruz is making the right enemies. Hopefully, he will pull it off and deal the Leftists in the GOP a defeat.
