‘nuther reason to vote for Cruz.
Pretty much seals the deal for me.
I thought Dewhurst was an insider. This confirms it.
Ted Cruz is my man, especially after the early attack ad run by Dewhurst.
Perry is a CROOKED CRONY. No more crony politics.
Dammit. Perry must still be taking his back pain drugs.
Cruz all the way.
It’s Cruz at my house, too.
All you Texas Freepers. Dewhurst is just another professional politician. Don’t vote for him. Ted Cruz is the real deal.
Another 4 votes for Cruz at my house.
Young Conservatives of Texas endorsed Ted Cruz.
Perry wouldn’t have won his home state. Cruz is going to cruise to victory, and Perry can’t do a damn thing about it.
Ted Cruz is the Paul “Obamacare Oral Argument God” Clement of Texas, the conservative who’s able to articulate CONSERVATISM in a clear way off-the-cuff.
I can’t speak to Dewhurst, although it is hardly surprising that the sitting governor endorses his own sitting LtGov. It would have been considered a big slap if Perry did otherwise, would it not?
Unfortunately, it looks like Dewhurst is holding a big (if slightly decreasing) lead in RCP poll averages.
Shame on you FR Perry supporters.
He wants to send another RINO to the senate.
Perry is no friend to the Tea-Party.
Dittos for my house...it would be 5 votes for Cruz if I could get fake id for my 10 YO. lol
I’ve heard too much about Dewhurst. I’ll vote for Cruz.
Dewhurst? WTF Perry? I will be voting for Lela Pittenger if she can get some traction. Or Cruz if she doesn’t.
Cruise to victory with Cruz!
Dewhurst is running 3rd in this KFYO poll.
I met her back in 2010 when everyone though KBH was going to retire (until the final filing deadline, I wasn't entirely sure she would retire this time); she's very nice, passionate, etc., but she honestly never had a chance.
One republican conservative fraud endorses another. No surprise there.
That's an assinine thing to say. It's not his supporter's fault that he favors loyalty to his lt Governor.
Remember when Sarah Palin endorsed McCain for Senate? That wasn't a shame on Palin supporters.
It seems that Perry has finally found a Hispanic that he DOESN’T love.
I can’t help remembering all the people on this site SHOUTING that he was such a conservative, including that Ohio babe.
Oh well, I guess I was right - he’s OWNED by the Establishment.
My world ended when Cheney endorsed Mittens the other day.
I won’t even have a Sarah entry on the ballot to focus on while I pull the lever for.... man, I can’t even say it.
Ted will receive two votes from my family, just hope he can keep up with Dewhurst money wise.
On the other hand, I am certainly with everybody here saying vote for Cruz.
Another 4 votes for Cruz at my house too.
No, it was his supporters who kept telling us what a heroic tea party conservative he was that would shake up the establishment, when his record showed the opposite -- he IS the establishment.
>> Remember when Sarah Palin endorsed McCain for Senate? That wasn't a shame on Palin supporters. <<
McCain plucked Sarah Palin from obsurity and made her a national figure, she owed him big time. Perry does not owe Dewhurst for his career, it's the other way around. Just rewarding one of his lackey's.
