You do NOT have Tea Party support: An Open Letter to David Dewhurst

By Gary P Jackson

This is extraordinary. I’ve never seen a group as large as the Tea Party have to publicly tell a candidate to cease and desist. Of course David Dewhurst is no ordinary dishonest politician. This is a guy who has produced some of the most despicable ads we’ve ever seen, aimed at his opponent Ted Cruz. This is a guy who has robocalls using someone impersonating Sarah Palin, claiming she supports him, when in fact she strongly supports Ted Cruz, and was just in The Woodlands on Friday.

Texas is Tea Party country. More voters identify themselves as Tea Party, percentage wise, than any other state. Among the Tea Party, Ted Cruz holds a substantial 75-25 percent advantage. That’s the ball game.

Now it seems Dewhurst, in a panic is embracing the Tea Party and claiming it’s support. Well, Te Texas Tea Party groups have a strongly worded reply. From the Tea party Express’ Texas Blog:

An Open Letter to David Dewhurst

You do NOT have Tea Party support: An Open Letter to David Dewhurst

Dear Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst,

As Texas tea party leaders, we reject your campaign’s recent claims that you have earned tea party support. We stand with the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, which has more small donors in Texas than you have – over 30,000.

Your performance in Austin is identical to the “go along to get along” establishment political culture in Washington. This behavior has led to a nearly $16-trillion-dollar national debt, infringement on our liberties, and the erosion of the American Dream. We need a U.S. Senator that is a bold leader and a proven conservative, and that is Ted Cruz.

It is obvious that your recent tea party posturing is just a desperate attempt to trick voters in the closing hours of this election. Though you are right to recognize that the tea party will be the deciding factor in this election, our support is not with you. You have failed to attract the support of this grassroots movement because of your record as Lieutenant Governor.

The Tea Party was born out of the shared frustration with both parties, which have failed to address the fundamental problems that are facing our country: unsustainable spending, job-stifling regulations and an ever-growing federal government. This movement has coalesced around the common goal of reducing the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government by electing bold leaders that will stand up in difficult times.

Your dishonest and misleading smear campaign of Ted Cruz, coupled with your recent false claims of tea party support, show clearly that you simply represent the political status quo rather than the leadership we require. We have spent our time, dollars, and passion to elect Ted Cruz because he is the candidate qualified to stand up for the voice of We the People.

Sincerely,

    I voted for Cruz but I am not sure I won’t regret it. I know for a fact that Dewhurst is the wrong guy. The sweet looking lady under Cruz’s arm is a member of the CFR, and he got an appreciable amount of funding from Goldman Sachs. I voted Addison in the primary. I am basing my vote on his stance against Texas being governed by the International Criminal Court and his recognition of indefinite detention as a genuine threat. None of our past Tea Party trophy wins have done so, with the exception of Lee, Paul and Amash. Don’t let us down, Ted.

      Cruz is the real deal. He wouldn’t have the support of Sarah Palin, Mark Levin, or Jim DeMint if he wasn’t. We won’t have to watch Cruz like a hawk watches chickens the way we do with KBH and John Cornyn.

      Yeah Cruz is supported by CONSERVATIVES. Meanwhile Dewhurst is supported by every corrupt lobbyist in DC and Texas, and had a Washington fundraiser at George Soros stooge John Podesta’s townhome.

      Thankfully, Cruz is beating Dewhurst mighty handily in all the precincts that have reported.
