Ted Cruz is surging in the polls!

A Texas Tribune/UT poll released yesterday shows U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz surging in the polls and suggests he is headed to a runoff with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst! Dewhurst leads with 38% followed by Cruz at 27%. Although Dewhurst has held statewide office for 14 years and has universal name ID in Texas, he is far from closing in on the 50% needed to avoid a runoff that would heavily favor Cruz.

Tea Party Express was proud to travel to Texas to endorse this conservative champion. As Solicitor General of Texas from 2003-2008, Cruz authored 80 U.S. Supreme Court briefs and personally argued 40 oral arguments, including 9 before the Supreme Court. Named “a Republican star rising in Texas” and “a great Reaganite hope” by the National Review, Ted Cruz has led the fight against Obama’s offshore drilling moratorium and for private property rights for Americans. His “Growth and Jobs Agenda” promotes a limited government plan that pledges to repeal ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank, kill Cap and Trade, and dramatically simplify the tax code. Cruz knows the value of hard work and the importance of economic freedom in achieving the American dream, and he will be a champion for these principles in Washington.

This race is a classic example of Tea Party vs. Establishment. Ted Cruz is well-positioned to win this seat, but he needs your help! Please donate today and help the Tea Party Express make sure Ted Cruz is the next U.S. Senator from Texas.
