Concerning the “mudslinging” occurring between Cruz and his opponent David Dewhurst, Cruz said that Dewhurst has poured a large sum of his personal wealth into ads that blatantly attack Cruz. Cruz, on the other hand, has not released any attack ads and instead prefers to focus on his and Dewhurst’s voting records.

We have not once engaged in personal attacks or character attacks like the type that, unfortunately, have characterized my opponent’s campaign. Instead we have, from day one, kept the focus on the issues, kept the focus on a straightforward analysis of my record and my opponent’s record.”

Cruz said that he’s only gone after Dewhurst on two things: Dewhurst’s support of a payroll tax and his support of amnesty.

Cruz also expressed his views on two key issues: illegal immigration and abortion. Cruz said that immigration has become a crisis in this country, and that if elected, he would do everything possible to put more “boots on the ground” and protect the U.S. borders. On the topic of abortion, Cruz said that overturning the Roe v. Wade decision would require either new justices on the Supreme Court or a constitutional amendment. But, he said he would work to try and overturn that decision.

Early voting for the U.S. Senate runoff race takes place all this week and ends Friday, July 27th. Election day is July 31st.
