Sarah Palin Endorses Ted Cruz for US Senate

Governor Sarah Palin stated

“We’re proud to join conservatives in Texas and throughout the nation in supporting your campaign to become the next Senator from the Lone Star State.”

“Your conservative principles, passionate defense of our Constitution and our free market system come at a time when these cornerstones of our freedom and prosperity are under attack,” Governor Palin added. “Our shared goal isn’t just to change the majority in control of the Senate, but to assure principled conservatives like you are there to fight for us.”

New Poll: Ted Cruz Continues to Gain Ground

A new poll out today by Public Policy Polling shows Ted Cruz gaining ground, despite a barrage of Dewhurst’s negative attack ads.

The independent poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling, has Cruz at 26% and Dewhurst at 38% — despite Dewhurst spending over $6 million on TV and Radio ads and almost $1 million attacking Ted. By comparison, the Ted Cruz campaign has spent less than a million dollars on paid advertising, yet Ted continues to climb in the polls.

Public Policy Polling has this to say about their poll showing Ted surging and Dewhurst staying “stagnant.”

Every time PPP polls Texas the Republican Senate primary gets closer and closer. What was a 29 point lead for David Dewhurst in September has now been cut all the way down to 12 points. Dewhurst is at 38% to 26% for Ted Cruz, 8% for Tom Leppert, and 7% for Craig James.

Cruz’s support has increased from 12% to 18% to 26% over our last three polls. Meanwhile Dewhurst has remained stagnant in the 36-41% range. Cruz’s name recognition has increased from 29% to 48% with Republican primary voters since January and the change has almost all been positive. His favorability’s gone from 15/14 to 31/17. The other candidates have seen just modest gains in name recognition or none at all.

Among voters who are familiar with Cruz- whether they have a positive opinion of him or not- Cruz leads Dewhurst 39-34. That suggests that as Cruz’s profile continues to increase this race may continue to get closer.

Ted Cruz First TV Ad and ObamaCare Repeal Money Bomb

With 69 days to election day and 10 days left in the fundraising quarter the Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate campaign launched its first television ad of the Senate race “Delivers,” and launched an Obamacare Repeal Money Bomb.

The 30-second spot, “Delivers,” highlight’s Cruz’s successful work as the Solicitor General of Texas defending U.S. sovereignty against the United Nations and World Court in the case Medellin vs. Texas. The ad also reaffirms Cruz’s commitment to leading the fight for fiscal responsibility in Washington.

The central case discussed in the ad is Medellin vs. Texas. Jose Ernesto Medellin brutally gang-raped and murdered two teenage girls in Houston. When the World Court tried to order the United States to reopen Medellin’s conviction (along with the convictions of 50 other murderers), Cruz fought the World Court and the U.N. all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and won 6-3.

The ObamaCare Repeal Money Bomb is running for three days with the goal of raising $100,000.  The Money Bomb is running to Friday March 23rd, the date President Obama signed ObamaCare into law.  Will you contribute today to help repeal ObamaCare and to keep Ted’s TV ad on the air?

The “Delivers” TV ad script is below.

Ted Cruz Launches Two Statewide Radio Ads

The Ted Cruz for Senate campaign launched two statewide radio ads that highlight Ted’s proven conservative record.  The two radio ads are 60 seconds long and will begin airing statewide today.  These are the campaigns first paid media buy of the 2012 primary race.

One of the new ads, “Delivered,” highlights Cruz’s proven record of fighting for conservative principles, specifically defending U.S. sovereignty and standing up for three million veterans. The other ad,“Fighter,” emphasizes Cruz’s family history of fleeing oppression in Cuba. Ted’s father fought against the oppressive Batista regime before he fled to Texas in 1957.

Running ads in a state as big as Texas is a very costly.  If you like what you heard  than consider donating to the Cruz campaign to help make sure Ted continues to get his message out through these new radio ads.

Below the jump are the scripts of the two radio ads.

Happy Texas Independence Day!

Happy Texas Independence Day, I was not lucky enough to be born here, but I got here as fast as I could!  Today’s Texas Independence Day history lesson below comes from Ted Cruz, enjoy.

This Texas Independence Day, Texans face a choice. Liberty is in danger, and we have a chance to draw a line in the sand and fight for it. I’m proud to say that Texans will stand up. Because Liberty is in their veins and in their heritage.

In early March, 1836, 52 men braved the bitter cold in the small village of Washington-on-the Brazos, Texas to form a new nation. The building had no glass in the windows, and these delegates wore buckskin and homespun. Compared to the gathering in Philadelphia 60 years before that launched the United States, this was a poor and improvised affair.

But the men who on that day declared the Independence of Texas knew with every fiber of their being what the price of liberty was. One hundred and fifty miles away, in a dank, crumbling adobe fort called the Alamo, just under 200 of their countrymen faced the ninth day of a terrible siege.

The enemy was the Mexican general Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, who had campaigned on a platform of change and liberty. Many Texans had supported him, but soon soured when it was clear that he was not quite what he had claimed to be.

In the Alamo, Lt. Col. William Barrett Travis knew the odds were against him. But he also knew that the fight for liberty is always worth it – whatever the odds. In a letter a few days before, he made it clear where he and his men stood:

“…I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch. The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country. — Victory or Death!

The Alamo fell on March 6, 1836. None of the men inside could know that just four days earlier, Texas had declared its independence. None would know that by the end of April, Texas would secure that independence with the glorious victory of San Jacinto. For all they knew, they would die forgotten in that crumbling frontier bastion. And yet those brave men fought on, because the fight for liberty is what makes men and women free.

That spirit still guides the Lone Star State today. In the words of Sam Houston, true now as they were the day they were spoken, “Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may.”

Sign up to join our fight for liberty today.

POLL: Cruz Surge Continues, Headed to Runoff With Dewhurst

A new Texas Tribune/UT poll released today on the US Senate race indicates that the proven conservative Ted Cruz continues to surge and he’s headed to a runoff with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst.

headedtorunoff

Here’s a summary of the new independent, statewide poll:

  • Dewhurst is at 38%, Cruz 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.
  • Despite being in statewide office for 14 years and having universal name ID among GOP primary voters, the Lt. Governor is far from closing in on the 50% needed to avoid a runoff. And Cruz is in a solid second place, and surging strongly.
  • A runoff would overwhelmingly favor Cruz, given that the most engaged and conservative voters would dominate a runoff – informed conservative voters are a nightmare for Dewhurst.
  • Here’s how 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.”
  • Henson added these numbers are a “yellow flag” for Dewhurst. And the Texas Tribune noted that Cruz is looming in the rearview mirror of Dewhurst.
