As the Texas Senate primary counts down to its final days, former Solicitor General Ted Cruz will be getting help from Sen. Jim DeMint’s new Super PAC, beginning with an ad running Monday.

The ad is entitled “Save America,” a response to former President Ronald Reagan’s quote that “Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction.” The ad praises Cruz as a “champion of freedom, defender of the constitution, endorsed by grassroots conservatives.”

“When the stakes are highest,” the narrator says, “we need our most principled leaders.”

The newly launched Senate Conservatives Action made a $500,000 buy — the first independent expenditure since its formation. The ad will run on network television in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin — the largest media markets in Texas.
