From The Texas Tribune:
Ted Cruz's campaign is counting on lower turnout, because he believes his supporters, who come from the more activist Tea Party segment of the GOP, are more energized to vote. Even in the middle of the summer.
That has Dewhurst doing everything he can to mobilize his supporters. Especially in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Last week, the Dewhurst campaign released a couple of major endorsements. Texas Rangers owner and baseball legend Nolan Ryan gave his support, along with former Senate candidate and Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert.
