A new radio ad from Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst brought race and illegal immigration to the forefront of the U.S. Senate race Friday, the last day of early voting before Tuesday's primary.
In the ad, called "Amnesty," Dewhurst's campaign implies that former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz supports granting amnesty to illegal immigrants due to Cruz's serving as a board member for two Hispanic groups, the Hispanic Leadership Fund and the Hispanic Alliance for Prosperity Institute.
The Cruz campaign and his supporters immediately denounced the ad Friday and were quick to point out that Cruz, who is Cuban, has long been a critic of amnesty proposals.
