Cruz Cruises to the Senate!

Ted Cruz, Texas, Senate, Dewhurst

Fox News is reporting another victory for the Tea Party!  Newcomer Ted Cruz won their support and convincingly defeated the Republican establishment favorite, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, in the Texas’ runoff election Tuesday.  Cruz captured the GOP nomination to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison with the support of  conservative voters across the state.

With name recognition, Dewhurst was seen as an easy victory for mainstream Republicans, even getting the endorsement from Texas Governor Rick Perry.  But he was seen as too moderate by conservatives.

The 41-year-old Cruz has received millions in support from national tea party groups and other conservative organizations.  He also was endorsed by ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, radio talk show host Glen Beck, U.S. Senators Jim DeMint of South Carolina and Kentucky’s Rand Paul, as well as former GOP presidential hopeful and Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.
