Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said, “Over the past month, the Dewhurst campaign has waged one of the most offensive and misleading political smear campaigns of this election cycle. In the past week Dewhurst has doubled down by claiming support from the tea party. Tomorrow will be an unquestionable exhibition of statewide grassroots Tea Party support to the contrary.

“Dewhurst is right to believe the tea party will be the deciding factor in tomorrow’s election, but unfortunately for him, that support is with Ted Cruz. We are going to stand together and show David Dewhurst just what tea party support looks like!

“This showing of support will also aim to combat some of Dewhurst’s most appalling distortions. After traveling through the state over this past week, it has been evident that Dewhurst’s dishonest campaigning must be addressed.

“What today will be about is bringing together the most influential tea party leaders in the state to share their reasons why Ted Cruz is the strongest and most qualified candidate in tomorrow’s runoff election,” Kremer concluded.
