SD-25: An Open Letter to Ted Cruz

Dear Ted,

Congratulations on Tuesday.  Forcing a sitting Lieutenant Governor, with unlimited resources and the constitutional powers of the Lieutenant Governor's office behind him, into a run-off is a tremendous accomplishment.  Given your current momentum and new-found name recognition, an opportunity exists and I hope you will maximize it by endorsing Dr. Donna Campbell for the Texas Senate.

Throughout this campaign, you have repeatedly explained how Texas "is ground zero in the battle between the moderate establishment and the conservative Tea Party tidal wave that is sweeping this country."  The truth, however, is that that battle continues down the ballot from your race.  Dr. Donna Campbell is a phenomenal conservative who will shake-up Austin the same way we expect you to shake up Washington D.C.

Given the fact that your opponent is the sitting Lieutenant Governor, and given the authority the Texas Constitution grants the Lieutenant Governor over the Texas Senate, you're familiar with how disappointing the Texas Senate has been over the past decade.  Unfortunately, ten-term incumbent Sen. Jeff Wentworth, has been a big part of the problem in the Texas Senate.  Sen. Jeff Wentworth, the most far-left Republican in the Texas Senate, has marched lock-step with David Dewhurst for a decade.

Dr. Donna Campbell is running to represent the people of Texas, not David Dewhurst's cronies.  Over the past six months, you've done an admirable job making David Dewhurst miserable by representing the people of Texas.  I ask you to help Dr. Donna Campbell continue this Ted Cruz tradition next year in the Texas Senate.

You say that you're a fighter, you say you want to lead; here's your first opportunity to match your words with action....

Sincerely,
Adam Cahn
Austin, TX
