    Texas Senate Debate: Will Dewhurst Defend His Moderate Record?

    By Even Academic Standards, David Dewhurst is “centrist”

    In the race for U.S. Senate in Texas, the conservative candidate clearly is Ted Cruz. His record of fighting for conservative ideals is clear, as I have noted before.

    RS at CPAC: Ted Cruz (R CAND, TX-SEN PRI).

    Ted Cruz is an old friend of RedState, of course: so we made sure to spend a couple of minutes talking about the race, how the ongoing redistricting dispute in Texas is making everybody’s elections difficult, and about CPAC generally.  And if you’re wondering why a Texas federal Senate race would be affected by redistricting, it’s because nobody really wants to have three primary dates | Read More »
