AUSTIN, Texas (October 7, 2012)—U.S. Senate candidate and tea party favorite Ted Cruz is thought to have a commanding lead against ex-Democratic state representative Paul Sadler and has largely ignored his opponent.
Instead, he's concentrated on fundraising and mending fences with a Texas GOP establishment he attacked during the fiercely contested Republican senatorial primary.
Sadler said Cruz’s views are too extreme for Texas, but Cruz has refused to respond, trying to deny Sadler a chance to raise his profile statewide.
During the Republican primary, Cruz criticized opponent Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst for using the same strategy.
