Concerning the campaign of his opponent, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, Cruz said that his opponent has spent far too much time pouring money into attack ads and has not once mentioned anything about his spending record.

My opponent has dumped now over sixteen million dollars of his vast personal wealth into just flooding the airwaves with false, nasty attack ads all aimed at me.

Cruz responded to the attack ads concerning his involvement in a lawsuit concerning a Chinese tire company. Cruz said that the man featured in Dewhurst’s ads moved his operations to China several years ago and that the lawsuit was really involving two Chinese companies and dd not affect American jobs, as the ads claimed. He also predicted that Dewhurst would release another attack ad today, right before the two debate in Dallas, but that Dewhurst probably would not do much “mud slinging” during the debate.

Cruz also talked about why his campaign is leading over Dewhurst’s campaign, and also what he plans to accomplish if elected to the Senate, such as working to repeal Obamacare and cut spending.
