Just how liberal is Texas Senate candidate David Dewhurst?  He is so liberal that he won’t even hide his associations with Democrat operatives in middle of a heated primary in a conservative state!  Ben Shapiro of Big Government reports that Dewhurst was in Washington this week meeting with Democrat bigwigs, including lobbyist and strategist Tony Podesta:

Chalk another one up to “bipartisanship.” David Dewhurst, the lieutenant governor of Texas, spent time in November hanging out with his left-wing friends in Washington D.C. to raise a little scratch for his run for the Senate. One of those friends was Tony Podesta, a major fundraiser for the Democratic Party, who held a fundraiser at his townhouse for Dewhurst.

The hosts of the party were all typically fundraisers for Democrats. Podesta himself heads up the Podesta Group, which earned a whopping $27.4 million in lobbying fees last year. Salon.com, no right-wing outlet, labeled the Podesta Group a firm with “close ties to the Democratic Party and the Obama administration.” Tony and his brother John are frequent visitors to the White House. Podesta has worked for political campaigns for Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, George McGovern, and Michael Dukakis. He was a founding member of the radical liberal group People for the American Way.

Maybe this relationship with these supercilious rich liberals is what prompted Dewhurst to support tax increases.  Is it too much to ask that we elect a somewhat conservative Senator from a state like Texas?  Luckily, we won’t have to settle for someone who is even somewhat conservative.  We have a rock solid conservative fighter in Ted Cruz.

Unfortunately, Dewhurst’s connections to the permanent political class is paying off.   This is a race that we absolutely must get right.  While Cruz’s average donation was $319, Dewhurst has enjoyed an average of $2,286 a pop.  There are many more bigwigs who are willing to fund someone who will look out for special interests instead of the unencumbered free-market.   Let’s help Ted Cruz fight Dewhurst’s liberal money machine, and put him over the top.
