Campaigners grill each other on legal, financial involvement in China
DALLAS — The Republicans vying to fill Texas’ open U.S. Senate seat traded increasingly pointed attacks during a debate Tuesday night, as their already fiercely contested race enters its final two weeks.
But the best news of the night for Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst came moments after the debate, when former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert endorsed him over ex-state Solicitor General Ted Cruz. Leppert finished third behind Dewhurst and Cruz in the Republican primary on May 29, and had refused to back either.
