Dewhurst launches new online ad

Lt. Governor David Dewhurst is launching a fresh round of attack ads. The online released today entitled ‘What is Ted Cruz Hiding’ spot takes aim at Cruz’s missed deadline to disclose his personal finance statement and his work for a Pennsylvania developer at the center of the so-called ‘Kids for Cash’ scandal.

Cruz banking on ‘donation surge’

Ted Cruz, meanwhile, is trying to capitalize on yesterday’s poll numbers that showed him running ahead of Dewhurst. His campaign launched a ‘donation surge’ yesterday. The campaign and its supporters took to Twitter, urging voters to keep the momentum going. This evening, the campaign touted its 450+ donations.
