The Club for Growth has chosen its next target: Texas lieutenant governor David Dewhurst.
Today, the free-market group announced a $1 million television-ad campaign against Dewhurst. Entitled “Moderate,” the new ad targets Dewhurst’s reputation as a moderate Republican. The club is supporting former Texas solicitor general Ted Cruz in the May 29 primary. A transcript and video are below.
