Today is the day Texans go to the polls to cast their vote in the U.S. Senate GOP primary. Governor Palin endorsed Ted Cruz, after which time he gained ground. Cruz is the underdog, but he has a good chance of forcing a July runoff.
Here's Ian Lazaran's take:
The Texas GOP primary is today. The Governor endorsed Ted Cruz. Polls in the race suggest that Texas Lt. Gov. Dewhurst will likely win at least a plurality of the vote today but Cruz’ real goal today is to keep him under 50% so that the race goes to a run-off between Cruz and Dewhurst. Cruz should have a decent shot in a one-on-one if he’s able to keep Dewhurst under 50% in today’s primary race. Cruz has promoted and used the Governor’s endorsement. Polling suggests that the Governor’s endorsement is more persuasive to Texas GOP primary voters than Rick Perry’s endorsement.Today, Governor Palin tweeted this reminder and a video:
Dear Texans, please remember to vote today for Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate! fb.me/KpyB3ek3
