Earlier this week, the North Texas Tea Party released their February poll numbers from their membership regarding the US Senate Race and Ted led the dominated the candidates, winning with 57.5% of the vote. Wow. Just wow. The final results were as follows:
- Glenn Addison 2.2%
- Andrew Castanuela 0.0%
- Curt Cleaver 0.0%
- Ted Cruz 57.5%
- David Dewhurst 6.0%
- Tom Leppert 7.5%
- Lela Pittenger 4.5%
- Undecided 18.9%
- Other 2.2%
- Total 100%
And on Tuesday, the poll out by the Texas Tribune/UT further shows a Cruz surge continues and that he is headed to a runoff with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. This new, independent, statewide poll shows that Dewhurst is at 38%, Cruz at 27% and the next two candidates are 20 points behind at 7%. This means the race is headed for a runoff between Cruz and Dewhurst. UT pollster Jim Henson summarizes the situation: “Cruz is in the advantageous position right now of, for the most part, defending his ideas against Dewhurst’s record. In the last few cycles, that’s been a good place to be, and not to be the person who’s having to defend your actions in government.”
Yes! The campaign is surging and Ted’s message of returning our country to the limited government principles our Founding Fathers is resonating amongst Texas voters. But a Super PAC will soon be launching in Texas that will attack all others so we need to keep the Cruz Crew momentum alive! Listen to Ted as he speaks with Steve Bannon about the U.S. Senate battleground.
By electing Ted Cruz as Texas’ next U.S. Senator, we will return to limited government principles, defend free market principles and restore and follow the Constitution. Ted will fight for us! I want Ted Cruz to be my Senator. Not simply for the awesomeness that is Texas, but for the greatness that is America. America needs Ted Cruz.
Join me in supporting and standing with Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate.
