Dewhurst Blames Messaging for Loss

Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst (R) told WFAA-TV that messaging may be the reason why he's not as popular with Tea Party voters as other conservative candidates in the state and that contributed to his Senate primary loss last year to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Said Dewhusrt: "We had a July 31 runoff in which we had a hard time finding our voters. We made some mistakes. I had a brand new team that didn't get me. But my compliments to Senator Cruz. He ran a disciplined campaign. That was then. This is now."
