Tea Party Express is Congratulating Ted Cruz’s Success Tonight

Amarillo, TX – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, is congratulating Tea Party Express-endorsed Ted Cruz on his strong showing in today’s primary election, which forces a run-off on July 31st.

Sal Russo, Chief Strategist of Tea Party Express, said, “The Ted Cruz campaign has been slowly gaining momentum and building a powerful grassroots campaign that has attracted widespread conservative support. Tonight’s results show the undeniable strength of campaigns that start from the bottom up, just like we saw recently in the victory of Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock. Both candidates have successfully galvanized the Tea Party movement behind their campaigns, which will serve as an unstoppable force for Curz in the run-off election. We are committed to helping push Ted over the top in July and make sure he is the next U.S. Senator for Texas.

“The election results for voters on Election Day show growing strength for Cruz and only a nominal margin for Dewhurst. This suggests the momentum in the campaign is with the surging Cruz campaign and points to a strong likelihood of victory in the July run-off,” Russo concluded.

Tea Party Express came to Texas with their last national bus tour in mid-May and hosted six rallies throughout the state to engage and motivate Tea Party voters. The organization also unveiled its new Mobile Phone Bank bus in Dallas yesterday and made four stops where volunteers were able to make get-out-the-vote calls. The Mobile Phone Bank bus is now proceeding to Wisconsin for the recall elections.
