As Hugh Hewitt notes today on Townhall, Texas voters can now: cast their early votes for Ted Cruz.
Ted Cruz is very close.
The Texas GOP is very close.
The entire Lone Star State is very close and the country is very close to a very big win on Tuesday, July 31.
Early voting is underway in Texas right now and goes on through Friday.
…Ted Cruz has been endorsed by Senators Jim DeMint, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Pat Toomey and a host of other elected officials. Conservative luminaries from Sarah Palin to my radio brethren Sean Hannity and Mark Levin and yours truly have endorsed Ted Cruz. The wonderful Ed Meese —selfless and ever-serving–has endorsed Ted Cruz, and it is the Meese endorsement that ought to make you think about one more factor.
Ted Cruz is a very, very good lawyer, a superb originalist, a Paul Clement-like legal talent. We need more of those in the United States Senate, and not only for their votes cast there, but also for the near-complete immunity from filibuster service in the Senate bestows on them should they ever be nominated for the United States Supreme Court.
Michelle Malkin has a: few more details about why conservatives should be behind Cruz: instead of siding with the Republican establishment, which is rallying behind his extremely well-funded primary opponent, David Dewhurst.
So who are the stand-outs in the next generation of limited government, free market leaders? When I asked Malkin, she didn’t hesitate an instant before sharing her enthusiasm for Texas congressional hopeful Ted Cruz.
Cruz is by far and away, a rising star within the Tea Party and broader conservative movement. The former Solicitor General of Texas (the youngest in the nation to date) has authored over 80 U.S. Supreme Court briefs and personally argued 40 oral arguments, including 9 before the U.S. Supreme Court.
…“Ted Cruz is a wonderful scholar, lawyer and conservative,” Malkin said. He is the “ideal Tea Party candidate. His roots are in the grassroots.“ She also said the first generation Cuban American is someone who possesses the ”intellectual gravitas” Beltway elites are always deriding the Tea Party for supposedly lacking.
This is the Rand Paul vs. Trey Greyson primary all over again. Despite the fact that Paul was the natural choice, the establishment wanted the more conventional choice who would just take orders from leadership. That’s what David Dewhurst represents. Ted Cruz isn’t cut out of that same mold and replacing a mediocrity like Kay Bailey Hutchison with a 41 year old, first generation Cuban American who happens to be a Tea Party conservative and also one of the finest constitutional lawyers in the country would be a tremendous upgrade. It would also send a message that the Republicans in the Senate desperately need to hear: Don’t start backsliding because the Tea Party is still alive and kicking!
