Texas Sen. Ted Cruz just received some bad news: Texas Republicans want to replace him with Rick Perry…
According to The Hill:
“Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) leads Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in a hypothetical 2018 Senate primary match-up, a new poll finds.
The survey from left-leaning Public Policy Polling found Perry leading his former GOP presidential rival by 9 points, 46 percent to 37 percent, with 18 percent undecided, according to the Texas Tribune.
Perry is the only potential challenger that tops Cruz in the poll. Cruz holds a 22-point lead over Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) and a 32-point lead over Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas).
In a general election match-up with Democrats, the poll also showed Perry leading Housing Secretary Julián Castro, as well as former gubernatorial nominee Wendy Davis by 12 points.”
