Sarah Palin Endorses Ted Cruz In Texas Senate Race

Updated: Friday, May 11 2012, 04:05 PM CDT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Tea party-favorite Sarah Palin has endorsed Ted Cruz in the U.S. Senate race in Texas.

The former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate praised Cruz for his conservative principles.

Cruz is a former Texas solicitor general and appellate lawyer running for the Republican nomination to replace U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. He has won endorsements from many national tea party leaders and conservative anti-tax groups.

Cruz hopes to force a run-off with front-runner Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. Dewhurst has been endorsed by most Texas Republican groups and political action committees.

The other two candidates in the race include former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert and former ESPN football analyst Craig James.

Dewhurst has touted his experience in business and state politics while Cruz has emphasized his conservative views.Sarah Palin Endorses Ted Cruz In Texas Senate Race
