Ted Cruz’s campaign for the US Senate has gained huge momentum this week due to two major national endorsements and one of his Republican primary opponents dropping out and switching races.
FreedomWorks PAC believes that Ted Cruz’s promises to protect the Constitution and fight on behalf of taxpayers against runaway government spending and the continuous erosion of our fundamental freedoms will propel him to victory in the November, 2012 election.
After evaluating the candidates in this race, we believe that Ted Cruz will best serve the interests of hardworking Texas taxpayers by advocating the principles of lower taxes, less government and more individual freedom.”
Today the Club for Growth, a national group that believes “prosperity and opportunity come through economic freedom,” also endorsed Ted Cruz for US Senate.
“The Club for Growth PAC is excited to endorse Ted Cruz for the United States Senate,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Ted Cruz will fight for economic liberty and will be a stalwart defender of the U.S. Constitution. He will be an ally for other pro-growth Senators and Texans will be proud to have him representing them in Congress. Club Members will do everything they can to see that Ted Cruz is elected as Texas’s next Senator.”
These two major national endorsements alone should be enough for Ted Cruz’s best week ever, but there is more. Today the Texas Tribune broke the news that Cruz’s main challenger from the right Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams is withdrawing from the US Senate race to run for US Congress in a new district based in Arlington.
This is great news for conservatives and Tea Party folks, as they will not have to pick between Ted Cruz and Michael Williams, now they can support them both!
Next week the Texas Tribune is hosting the declared US Senate candidates for the first debate, register here to attend this free event.
