KERRVILLE (AP) - The two Texans embroiled in a white-hot battle for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination both say their records prove they are more-conservative than their opponent.

Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and former state Solicitor General Ted Cruz were in Kerrville on Friday to address a Republican Women’s Club.

Dewhurst says if the crowd liked what was happening in Texas, they should send him to Washington. Cruz countered that he was the only true conservative in the race.

The pair is vying for the GOP nomination to replace retiring Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. They face a runoff election July 31.

Dewhurst has been lieutenant governor since 2003 and is the establishment party favorite. But the younger and more-fiery Cruz is backed by tea party groups across Texas and nationally.
