Tea party darling Cruz wins Texas' US Senate race

DALLAS (AP) Texas overwhelmingly elected tea party-backed Republican Ted Cruz to the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, completing the former state solicitor general's once seemingly impossible rise from virtual unknown to the first Hispanic to represent the Lone Star State in the Senate.

The 41-year-old Houston attorney beat Democrat and former state Rep. Paul Sadler. He replaces retiring Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison of Dallas.

Cruz has vowed to limit spending and shrink the size of government and promised to do so again during his victory speech in Houston, saying four more years with President Barack Obama "will be challenging indeed."

"If President Obama means what he says on the campaign trail, if he is interested in working to bring people together to reduce the deficit and get people working, then I will work with him," Cruz said. But he added that if the president continues to take the country "down this same path, then I will spend every waking moment to the fight to stop it."
