Or at least Ted Cruz is destroying the establishment’s candidate, David Dewhurst, says Business Insider. According to Public Policy Polling, the standings in the Republican Senate runoff “finds Ted Cruz opening up a 52-42 lead, an increase from our survey two weeks ago that found him ahead 49-44″. This explains the one direct mail and 6 emails per day we have all been receiving from team Dewhurst.
They go on to say “Cruz’s victory is driven by 4 things: the Tea Party, the enthusiasm of his supporters, a generational divide within the Texas Republican ranks, and the lack of regard the party base currently holds for Rick Perry.
Cruz is ahead by a whooping 75-22 margin with Tea Party voters,”.
This would seem to be in contrast to some local establishmentarians who believe that the tea party is “Over”. Also serves to explain why local establishment candidates, formerly scornful of the humble tea partiers, are scrambling to get tea party endorsements on their direct mailers. Funny stuff.
Go vote for Ted and take someone with you. Remember to vote for Randy Weber, for Bonnen, Greg Parker, Bill Wallace, Wayne Mallia, Henry Trochesset and Mark Foster. Better yet, take a copy of this page with you.
