Cruz Attacked by Desperate Dewhurst – Get the Facts

David Dewhurst has finally realized what grassroots conservative Texans have known for months: Ted Cruz is the only thing standing in the way of the Lt. Governor achieving his dream—a new political title and more power.

A year ago, few believed Ted Cruz had a prayer of becoming the next U.S. Senator from Texas. David Dewhurst was considered the “inevitable” front-runner and proud representative of the establishment.

But in the past 15 months something remarkable has happened. Dewhurst’s support has plunged while support for Ted continues to surge.

Now the Lt. Governor is desperate, and desperate men do desperate things.

And desperate is the best way to sum up Dewhurst’s latest attack on Ted. Mr. Dewhurst is desperate for voters to think about anything other than his record of trying to force a new “wage” tax on Texans, using Enron-style accounting tricks to ‘balance the budget’, and increasing spending $72 billion.

So the question for Texans is what matters more, Dewhurst’s record of raising taxes and increasing spending in Texas, or the fact that Ted, in private practice, works for a law firm that represents one private company in a dispute with another private company outside Texas?

Dewhurst Smear:

  • Ted Cruz is “representing a Chinese company against an American company.”

The Facts:

  • Ted works in the private sector as an appellate lawyer at a major law firm that represents clients on different sides of litigation. One of the clients of the firm is a tire company based in China. That private company was sued in a trademark dispute and hit with a judgment, and the firm was hired to handle the appeal. Contrary to Dewhurst’s claim, Ted did not represent the company at trial, and was not the company’s “trial lawyer.” And the appeal concerns technical issues like the court’s jurisdiction and the appropriate statute of limitations.
  • An appeal is an ordinary part of the legal process between two private parties, and legal proceedings are not concluded until the appeal has run its course. The purpose of the appellate process is to ensure that the correct legal rules were followed—that U.S. law was properly applied. This is what lawyers do—they represent clients, in the same great tradition of our nation’s history like John Adams, Abraham Lincoln, and many others.
  • Earlier this year, Ted argued and won Global Tech v. SEB, a major intellectual property case before the U.S. Supreme Court against a Chinese company that had improperly copied and stolen U.S. intellectual property. The standard the Court adopted, at Ted’s urging, is designed to vigorously protect U.S. intellectual property from unscrupulous foreign companies.

Key Question:

What is more important: Ted Cruz, a proven conservative defender of the Constitution, working at a law firm that represents a company in a lawsuit between two private parties outside Texas or David Dewhurst’s long record of pushing new taxes on Texans and using accounting tricks to enable a $72 billion increase in government spending?

  • The Dewhurst campaign has consistently blown off the grassroots, skipping 32 candidate forums, and his campaign is now terrified of the incredible momentum behind the Cruz campaign, as conservatives all across Texas are uniting behind a strong conservative fighter.
  • Texans are tired of timid career politicians, and David Dewhurst is so desperate to cling to power that he’s willing to pour his personal money into the campaign and spend over $600,000 to try to convince Texans that a $26 million jury verdict on appeal between two private parties outside Texas is more relevant than his own public record of increasing government spending $72 billion, balancing the budget with Enron-style accounting tricks, and proposing a job-killing “wage tax” on Texans.
  • Dewhurst would rather discuss Chinese mining tires than his own tax-and-spend record. Learn what he’s trying to hide: www.dewbious.com
