Dear Democrats –
Every single week, Republican Senator Ted Cruz takes his crazy up to a new level.
Rep. Joaquin Castro put it well: “Republicans in Texas have gone off the rails. More folks are waking up and realizing these folks have gone too far.”

Every time you look at the news, Cruz is embarrassing Texas in new ways. When he’s not hanging out with his friends Sarah Palin and Donald Trump at CPAC, Cruz is acting crazy in the Senate.
In a recent debate about assault weapons, Cruz got into a fight with Senator Feinstein. Senator Feinstein became mayor of San Francisco after Harvey Milk and Mayor Moscone were shot and killed in City Hall. She saw their bullet-riddled bodies. She broke the news to the public. She has sat on the Senate Judiciary Committee for twenty years. Cruz decided he needed to give her a lecture to explain the Constitution and guns. Republican Joe Scarborough gave a fierce and impassioned response to Cruz’s lecture, calling it, among other things, “complete and utter ignorance.”
“I am not a sixth grader,” Senator Dianne Feinstein replied. “I am reasonably well-educated, and I thank you for the lecture.” As one news outlet put it: She looked, really, like she might throw some water in his face
Don’t us Texans know that feeling!
Cruz is setting new records for crazy. Yesterday Dana Milbank wrote in the Washington Post that Cruz’s actions in the Senate are essentially the same as inmates running an insane asylum. And when Senator John McCain recently referring to Cruz as a “wacko bird,” you know we’ve crossed into some seriously crazy territory!
That’s our representation in the Senate.
It doesn’t have to always be this way. We have an upcoming Senate race in 2014, and then we can replace Cruz in 2018. But there’s a lot of work we need to do first.
Donate Today to support our efforts to elect strong Democrats!
We need to build a field infrastructure throughout the state to organize Democrats. We need to educate more Texans about the harm Republicans are causing. We need to recruit strong candidates. And we need to talk to our friends and neighbors about how we’re going to Turn Texas Blue!
But we can’t do this without you.
If Cruz and his crazy don’t represent you, DONATE TODAY to support our efforts.
We’ll keep working hard on your behalf until Texas is represented by those who share Texas Values. But we need you to join our efforts.
Can we count on your help?
Thank you for giving what you can, and for fighting to make Texas a state represented by elected officials who actually represent us!
