David Dewhurst, I have been a supporter of yours in the past, but it is my intention to vote for your primary opponent in the run-off, Ted Cruz, unless you respond to the following. If you disagree with anything written, honor your commitment to explain your record before Texas voters, not by hiding behind people who are not running for U.S. Senator, but by standing on your own two feet.

• It is a fact that under your leadership, the sanctuary cities bill did not pass into law.

• It is a fact that under your leadership, the TSA groping bill did not pass into law and according to at least one Senator, you personally solicited the help of a Democrat Senator to kill the TSA bill.

• It is a fact that under your leadership, you led the effort to increase spending and the overall state budget grew $72 billion – from $116 billion in 2003-2004 to $188 billion 2010-2011. And while you claim to have “cut” the 2012-2013 budget, it is a fact that you “kicked the can down the road” by utilizing 24 months of revenue for 19 months of services in the most recent budget and consistently utilized accounting tricks, against the wishes of conservative.

• It is a fact that while you blame the “All Funds” budget increase on federal mandates, you repeatedly led the charge to INCREASE federal entitlement spending by arguing that more Texans should be eligible for Medicaid and you used federal stimulus dollars to “balance the budget.”

• It is a fact that in 2007, you stated that you supported a guest worker program “for those here today illegally” Dewhurst: Mr. South Texas Furthermore, after the Houston Chronicle confirmed this fact by providing a web link to the text of your speech on your taxpayer-funded website, that the text of your “Mr. South Texas” speech suddenly disappeared from the website.

• It is a fact that you did support and actively encourage the passage of a “payroll tax” in 2005.

Where there is smoke, there is fire. Dewhurst, stay in South Texas with your buddies and we will elect Cruz as our Senator. Some of these politicians speak with forked tongues. It has gotten to where you can not turn your back on them without getting stabbed in the back with some of their off the wall,cockamamie deals.

I son't like either one of these RINO's. Cruz is NOT a conservative. If he was, he would NOT be representing a Chinese company against American interests. It's a shame that we don't have better choices, but that is the Texas GOP for you.
