Dewhurst: I Focused On Texans, Not Tea Party

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst says he never felt the need to woo key tea party leaders nationwide. In his words, "I've been focused on Texans."
    
Dewhurst made the comments to The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday.
    
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and other tea party favorites are scheduled to visit Dallas and Houston this week to campaign for Ted Cruz, Dewhurst's Republican opponent for U.S. Senate.
    
Dewhurst says South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and other Cruz supporters are from smaller and less diverse states than Texas.
    
Dewhurst and Cruz meet Tuesday in a runoff election for the GOP nomination to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.
