Ladies and gentlemen, meet your next Senator from Texas and budding conservative superstar – Ted Cruz. Cruz beat Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination where he will now crush his Democrat opponent in the general election. I voted for him twice. Once back in the Presidential primary and once again today. This ain’t Chicago.
Ted is a white Hispanic, his parents having fled Cuba. Imagine! Fleeing a communist paradise to live with discrimination and no free health care in Texas. They don’t come any whiter than that.
All kidding aside, Ted is rock solid and a rock star. He made up 35 points in the polls over the past two or three months and will be a steady conservative voice in Washington. Congratulations, now make me proud.
