Cruz Gets Prime RNC Slot

Mitt Romney may be trying to appeal to centrists and moderates as we approach Election Day, but that doesn’t mean his party won’t continue to lavish attention on the Tea Party. Next week the RNC will announce that former Texas solicitor general and current Senate candidate Ted Cruz, a favorite of the Tea Party, will get a prime speaking slot at the Republican National Convention later this month in Tampa. Last week Cruz beat Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst in the Texas GOP primary runoff. Cruz will be joined by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Puerto Rico Gov. Luis Fortuño, and Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens.
