When:Saturday, October 12th, 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific
Where: Saturday Night Cigar Lounge with Taylor on Blog Talk Radio
What: Saturday nights were meant for cigars and politics.
Hear Taylor and his co-host Liz Harrison talk about everything from the past week – from politics, to news, to books, and entertainment. Whatever comes to mind, and of course, sobriety is not likely.
Tonight: Tonight is Texas politics and cigar talk with Scott Braddock! He’s not just from Texas…he’s OF Texas. Also expect some TX/OU weekend talk to, but only if we’re either A) Shocked at how much OU beats TX by or B) Shocked TX actually makes it a decent game.
AUSTIN, Texas, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — In a true Tea Party vs. establishment showdown, fiscally conservative candidate Ted Cruz forced establishment candidate David Dewhurst to a runoff election. The runoff election is expected to take place in late July.
“For the past year FreedomWorks for America has been preparing activists and building grassroots communities across the state so that Texas Tea Partiers were ready to support Cruz in this race,” commented Ryan Hecker, Chief Operating Officer of FreedomWorks for America.
“This is an incremental, but important victory for the limited government grassroots movement in Texas. We have helped maximize our 100,000 Texan activists’ efforts by providing materials, phone banking, and walking map technology. The activists have risen to the challenge and run a sophisticated ground game on behalf of Ted Cruz.”
FreedomWorks for America was one of Ted Cruz’s earliest endorsements, announcing support for the constitutional conservative in June 2011. Since the endorsement, FreedomWorks for America hosted 26 “Get out the Vote” events and established 35 distribution centers across the state to distribute approximately 46,000 door hangers, 8,600 yard signs, and 7,500 bumper stickers.
Hecker continued, “Ted Cruz’s success in Texas is yet another example of a larger national movement to support fiscal conservative House and Senate candidates like Dan Liljenquist in Utah, Richard Mourdockin Indiana and Josh Mandel in Ohio. Cruz would not only be a strong addition to take back the majority in the Senate, but also to strengthen the cohort of fiscal conservatives who will take leadership on crafting serious reform and advancing pro-growth economic policy.”
This week, David formally launched his campaign for U.S. Senate, and the roll-out was a great success.
In San Antonio, David held a town hall meeting at the state’s oldest VFW, drawing over 150 supporters. Grassroots activists, Tea Party members, veterans and young men and women all heard about David’s mission to stop Obama from killing the American Dream.
In Dallas, David headlined the opening of the grand opening of Dallas County Republican Party headquarters, and talked about getting America back on track.

To coincide with our kick-off, our campaign re-launched our updated website on Tuesday, http://dewhurstfortexas.com/, and expanded its E-campaign to the Drudge Report. At our website you’ll find the latest news, learn about David’s proven, conservative record and how you can get involved in the fight against Obama’s war on the American economy.
Our campaign also released a new Web video earlier this week about Obama’s shameful economic record, and the positive response we’ve received since we entered the race.
