his victory speech last night, Ted Cruz said "Millions of Texans and Millions of Americans are rising up to reclaim our country, to defend liberty, and to restore the Constitution." That's true. Ted Cruz's victory last night was fueled by countless activists, bloggers, and volunteers.
There is, however, one man who's contribution stands out.
In 2011, the Texas Legislature performed its constitutionally mandated redistricting function. Unfortunately, Eric Holder's Justice Department, in collaboration with radical Latino groups, sued the state of Texas, which delayed the election twice. Those two months were critical for Ted Cruz's campaign.
In early 2012, Dewhurst led Cruz by double digits. In addition, the Presidential campaign was still in full swing, which would have sucked all the oxygen out of the U.S. Senate race. Had this election been held on time, Dewhurst would have won and it probably wouldn't have been close.
Instead, Ted Cruz got an extra month to campaign; the results speak for themselves. The poetic justice is that Ted Cruz has been Eric Holder's most effective critic. In February, Ted Cruz called for Eric Holder's impeachment. In April 2012, Ted Cruz's campaign released this devastating video about Fast and Furious:
As I said on Glenn Beck's radio show this morning (replay for GBTV subscribers here; bottom of the second hour.), thank you Eric Holder; without your help, Ted Cruz NEVER would have won.
