Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst is promoting his grassroots efforts in a new campaign ad released today. “Spending time with the grassroots only makes me love Texas more,” Dewhurst says in the new 60-second web spot. “Over the years life has taught me, the most important thing I can do, is listen.”

Dewhurst faces a crowded field of Republicans in the GOP primary race. Sen. Dan Patrick, Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson and Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples are also vying for the state’s number two spot.
