Ted Cruz Wins Texas Runoff
Senate Conservatives spent $2 million supporting Ted Cruz
ALEXANDRIA, VA — The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) congratulated Ted Cruz on defeating David Dewhurst and winning the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Texas today.
"Ted Cruz won this race because he never stopped fighting for conservative principles," said SCF Executive Director Matt Hoskins. "The Washington establishment said Ted couldn't win, would be outspent, and was a lost cause. They were wrong, and now another conservative fighter is headed to the U.S. Senate."
The Senate Conservatives Fund and its super PAC spent $2 million supporting Ted Cruz in this critical race. Senate Conservatives raised $700,000 in direct contributions for the Cruz campaign and made $1.3 million in independent expenditures, including two statewide television ads.

"This is another victory for conservatives and it shows that the Tea Party can still defeat the Republican establishment if it wants to," added Hoskins. "This wasn't a fluke. Ted Cruz was massively outspent in a state of 25 million people and he still won. If conservatives can win a race like this in Texas, they can win anywhere."
The Senate Conservatives Fund is a political action committee dedicated to electing principled leaders to the United States Senate. In the 2011-2012 election cycle, SCF and its super PAC have raised over $9 million and have endorsed Josh Mandel (R-OH), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mark Nuemann (R-WI), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), and Richard Mourdock (R-IN).
