Early voting in Texas’ runoff elections begins today. Sarah Palin, who has endorsed Senate candidate Ted Cruz in the GOP primary, took to Facebook today to urge Texas Republicans to get out and vote.
“Texans have a clear choice in this race, and I encourage them to support Ted Cruz, a strong conservative fighter who will protect and defend our Constitution and not just go along to get along with the reckless spending of the permanent political class in D.C.” Palin writes. Palin adds that the “high-paid consultants of Ted’s well-funded opponent are in full panic mode and have plunged millions of dollars into false personal attacks against Ted meant to dispirit us and break our conviction.” That opponent is Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who has been endorsed by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. The race between Cruz and Dewhurst has been among the most expensive in Texas’ history.
