On the ground with Tea Party Express in support of Ted Cruz


For the next week I’ll be down in Dallas and other parts of Texas with the Tea Party Express (TPE) on a week-long junket/bus tour/mobile phone bank to help GOP Senate candidate Ted Cruz pull off the victory formerly known as improbable against the Texas GOP establishment . I’m hanging out with people like former Reagan staffer Sal Russo, who founded the Tea Party Express, and hopefully will get to rub elbows with Senators DeMint, Paul and Lee later this week — as well as other famous conservatives — as we hit Dallas and Houston trying to get out the vote for Cruz.

Two events of note to keep an eye on:

First, there is the Stand with Ted Cruz Radiothon tonight with the TPE from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Central Time. A number of people will be participating, including Rick Santorum, Senator Jim DeMint, Paul, Lee and former U.S. Attorney General Ed Meese. Check out more details here, or listen locally at 570 KLIF.

Second, the tour’s highlight will be a rally in The Woodlands in Houston on Friday evening. Details about the event can be seen here, but suffice to say the goal is to get all of your favorite conservatives and then some to show up in support of Cruz.

I interviewed Cruz back in May, and enjoyed getting to sorta-kinda-meet him. Hopefully I’ll be able to make that an actual meeting before heading back to Washington next week. Check out the interview here.
