Ted Cruz at #RSG12 gives credit to Marco Rubio and bloggers
Promoted from the diaries Ted Cruz, fresh off his amazing win in the runoff for the Texas Republican Senate primary on Tuesday, was in Jacksonville, Florida on Friday for this year’s RedState Gathering. He gave a great speech to kick off the conference and was kind enough to sit down for a interview with me. I first met Cruz at CPAC 2011 and have followed | Read More »
Ted Cruz Interview at RedState Gathering 2012
From the diaries by Neil… In what is widely being described as one of the TEA Party’s biggest upsets, Ted Cruz became Texas’ Republican nominee for US Senate on Tuesday night. Heavy advantages in name ID, money and institutional support were overcome by grassroots activists, ready to send a fighter to Washington. I’ve known Ted for two years but this weekend at #RSG12 I had | Read More »
The Establishment’s Near Sexual Advances on Ted Cruz Are About to Begin

Under the Radar: Erin DeLullo
The first time I met Ken Cuccinelli it was because of the persistence of a lady named Erin DeLullo. She would not leave me alone. She, a long time friend and wife of the Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis (he’d totally write about her if he hadn’t put a ring on her finger then got her pregnant. After marriage of course), found out I was headed | Read More »

Counting Chickens in Texas
Some friends in Texas are privately worried about Ted Cruz. The polls are very close. David Dewhurst has vastly outspent him. There is a huge turnout happening in random places in Texas — lots of people showing up in the runoff who do not normally vote in runoffs, let alone in Republican primaries. That could be a sign that people are really fired up for | Read More »
Conservative Grassroots Must Claim Texas Victory
Rumors of the Tea Party’s demise have been greatly exaggerated, as Mark Twain might say. Following massive victories across the country, which netted 63 House pickups and seven new Republican senators last cycle, this year alone, the Tea Party has won important primary contests with conservative candidates in Indiana and Nebraska. But the biggest prize is Texas. A state of 25 million people with 20 | Read More »

Is David Dewhurst a Conservative? Of Course Not.
But don’t tell that to DC’s chattering class who would have you believe there isn’t any difference between Dewhurst and Ted Cruz. They claim this campaign is just about which kind of “conservative” we will get in Washington — a “veteran conservative legislator” (read: guy who make nice with leadership), or a new member of the “doesn’t-play-well-with-others” caucus. It is “nonsense,” according to George Will | Read More »

The Establishment Hates Ted Cruz, You and Me
The most difficult thing to explain to your average Republican voter is how people like David Dewhurst, Charlie Crist and all the establishment, ladder-climbing, butt-kissing, near permanent political staff flacks who grow up to be lobbyists they put around them literally hate you, me, and conservative fighters like Ted Cruz.

Ted Cruz Outraises David Dewhurst. Dewhurst Reponds By Accusing Cruz of Supporting Pedophiles.
“It’s akin to saying David Dewhurst is a kid toucher because kissed a baby on the campaign trail. ” I have always had a lot of respect for the guys who are running David Dewhurst’s campaign, but I’m starting to see now why Rick Perry had no chance of getting elected President. The same team running Dewhurst’s campaign ran Perry’s Presidential campaign and has stooped | Read More »
