Outside Groups Spend Almost $4 Million For Texas GOP Senate Primary

In the past two days a Super PAC called the Texas Conservatives Fund — which acknowledges that it was created expressly to boost the Senate candidacy of Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst (R-TX) — has reported spending over $1.25 million on independent expenditures attacking one of his primary opponents, former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz (R). In total, outside groups have already spent at least $3,961,331 advocating for and against candidates in the May 29 Republican Senate primary — with two weeks left until Election Day.
