 Club for Growth President Chris Chocola: “Texas newspapers describe David Dewhurst as a moderate at heart because he has grown the size of government, supported new taxes, and has done his best to stop conservative policies in Austin.” 

Washington, DC – Fresh off the historic victory of Club for Growth PAC-endorsed candidate Richard Mourdock over Senator Richard Lugar in Indiana’s Republican Primary, Club for Growth Action today announced that it will begin a one million dollar ad campaign hitting “moderate tax-raising David Dewhurst” as part of Club for Growth Action’s efforts in Texas.

For this phase of the campaign, Club for Growth action is launching a thirty second TV advertisement today criticizing Lt. Governor David Dewhurst for supporting a state income tax. The Club for Growth PAC has endorsed former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz in the race. The seat became vacant following the retirement of Republican Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. The TV ad will run statewide on broadcast and cable in Dallas, Houston, Austin, and other markets.

In addition, Club for Growth Action is launching a 15-second version of the ad that will run statewide on conservative websites as a component of an internet campaign designed to urge Texas Republicans to vote against Lt. Governor Dewhurst in the May 29th Republican Primary.

“Texans looking for a principled defender of economic freedom should vote for Ted Cruz in the Republican Primary for U.S. Senate,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Texas newspapers describe David Dewhurst as a moderate at heart because he has grown the size of government, supported new taxes, and has done his best to stop conservative policies in Austin. Texas Republicans should vote against David Dewhurst and his support for higher taxes on May 29th.”

Script for “Moderate” (TV :30)

The Dallas Morning News says Dewhurst has served as a moderate Republican.

The Houston Chronicle says Dewhurst is generally considered a moderate.

A moderate at heart, says the Texas Observer.

And the Wall Street Journal says Dewhurst supported an income tax for Texas.

Moderate tax-raising David Dewhurst. Wrong for Texas.

Vote against Dewhurst on May 29th
