Ted Cruz Calls David Dewhurst A 'LIAR' In Texas GOP Senate Debate
The Texas Republican primary for U.S. Senate took an increasingly heated turn Thursday night, when Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz called opponent Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst a liar over one of his campaign ads.
"The reason that he's lying is because conservatives all over this state are uniting behind our campaign," Cruz said during a debate, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Dewhurst, the frontrunner, didn't respond to the accusation, the Chronicle reported.
The commercial, released two weeks ago by Dewhurst's campaign, questioned Cruz over his work as an attorney, when he represented a Chinese company accused of copyright violations.
Cruz's campaign released its first two ads Wednesday, one defending his legal work and the other attacking Dewhurst's conservative credentials.
Texas holds its primary on May 29.
