With two Republican contenders for the 2012 Senate race in Texas dropping out recently to run instead for a House seat, conventional wisdom has the GOP contest shaping up as a two-man showdown between the "establishment" candidate, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, and the tea party insurgent, former Solicitor General Ted Cruz.
Cruz spokesman John Drogin said Mr. Cruz, who has been racking up endorsements from the likes of Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and Utah Sen. Mike Lee, is focused on his campaign — not competitors.
But the Cruz campaign has momentum, he said, and the right message on state's rights and fiscal responsibility.
