Cruz and Dewhurst Battle Over Donor and Endorsement Numbers

The latest in the Texas GOP U.S. Senate battle between Ted Cruz and Lt. Gov. Dewhurst:

Whether you compare the number of donors (Cruz: 22,190 vs. Dewhurst: 3,023), the Republican Women endorsing (Cruz: over 200 vs. Dewhurst: 12), or Facebook fans (Cruz: 79,176 vs. Dewhurst: 27,405), the numbers don’t lie.

The big money lobbyists may support Dewhurst (over $800,000 and counting), but Grassroots conservatives are standing with Ted Cruz.

The Dewhurst campaign would like to paint Cruz as the Washington insider, though he has not held elected office. The numbers point otherwise.
