Paul 2, Perry 0 in Senate Endorsements
I haven’t seen this pointed out anywhere else so I figured this was the place to do it.
Both Ron Paul and Texas Governor Rick Perry have made endorsements in two high profile U.S. Senate races recently.
In Minnesota’s Senate race, Ron Paul endorsed Kurt Bills in the Republican Primary. Gov. Perry endorsed Bills’ opponent Pete Hegseth.
In Texas Senate race, Ron Paul endorsed Ted Cruz in the Republican Primary. Gov. Perry endorsed Cruz’ opponent David Dewhurst.
Cruz is now in a runoff against Dewhurst–exactly what Dewhurst had hoped to avoid.
Virtually everyone saw Tuesday’s results in Texas as a big win for Cruz.
Both of these races were also wins for Ron Paul. They were also losses for Gov. Perry.
It’s easy to see which Texan is having more influence on the future and direction of the Republican Party.
