Ted Cruz: The next big conservative post-Indiana
By Team Cruz
How a Dedicated Group of Tea Party Activists Toppled Richard Lugar
The Atlantic’s Dan Friedman writes about Ted Cruz’s strong odds.
- It’s not just incumbents who should take notice. Conservatives recruited a credible Senate contender in Texas in Ted Cruz, who stands a real chance of forcing a surprise GOP primary runoff in the open race against Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. The Atlantic, 5/9/12
Conservative activists say a victory by Richard Mourdock in the Indiana Republican primary Tuesday would be a significant step toward a Tea Party takeover of the Senate GOP agenda.
- Rep. Jeff Flake, who is favored to win the Arizona Senate Republican primary; Josh Mandel, the GOP nominee in Ohio; and Ted Cruz, who could be headed for a runoff election in Texas, are other conservatives who are in decent position to triumph in November. The Hill 5/8/2012
Is Texas Next?
The Weekly Standard reports ”Cruz seems to have all the momentum” and predicts a tough battle for Dewhurst.
- Ted Cruz, an impressive young conservative lawyer has (amazingly) raised almost as much money as Dewhurst…And Cruz seems to have all the momentum. If no one gets 50 percent of the vote on May 29, there’s a runoff, and that would mean real trouble for Dewhurst. The Weekly Standard, 5/9/12
