@ 3:50 Dewhurst on Chinese
"The Chinese government and the Chinese companies are killing millions of American jobs and we need to give our trade-negotiators more tools in their toolboxes in order to create a level playing field. Mr. Cruz disagreed with that legislation, I supported it. Mr. Cruz had President Obama supporting him in that position, I had a majority of the conservatives in Senate supporting what I thought was fair."

@ 6:19 Dewhurst and Laura exchange over Dewhurst criticism of Cruz providing legal counsel to a company with ties to the Chinese government
"Between the stealing of intellectual property, between their cyber-espionage and their cyber warfare against the United States military and their currency manipulation, we have a serious, serious problem. And Mr. Cruz didn't seem to be concerned about getting paid big dollars to represent this company, with a strategy to delay until Mr. Fisherman died. Meanwhile, Mr. Fisherman has had to lay off all of his American workers. I'm interested in creating American jobs by giving the tools to our trade-negotiators so they can create a level playing field."

@ 7:48 Dewhurst on amount of money spent on this race
"The Washington-Insider groups that have been trying to hand pick a Senator -- I want Texans to pick a Senator -- but the Washington-Insider groups funded about $6.5 million dollars in negative ads that didn't say one true thing. The only thing that they got right is that my name is David Dewhurst! And so I had to defend myself. We raised more money than anyone else in this race and I've been in the least amount of time."

@ 9:10 Dewhurst on why he hasn't landed some of the top conservative endorsements
"Our polling shows that with those Tea-Party members, that believe in all the tenants and all the principles of the Tea-Party, we split that vote right down the middle. Mr. Cruz got in this race some 8 or 9 months before I did, and racked up a lot of support from different people. He's worked in and out of Washington for a long time. He's got the support of these Washington-Insider Super PAC's...I am the only career business man in this race. And certainly, between Mr. Cruz and myself, there's a huge contrast between a lawyer that's never done any of the things we're talking about and somebody who's very conservative -- I'm the most fiscally-conservative Lieutenant Governor in the history of the state of Texas. I'm the most socially-conservative Lieutenant Governor in the history of the state. I'm a conservative businessman first."

@ 12:04 Dewhurst on his accusation Cruz is pro-amnesty
"In the case of the amnesty, two of his fellow board members have already come out and made statements that he was a strong supporter of amnesty. Has he changed his mind, or is he a hypocrite? Is he only saying what he has to do, as a trial lawyer, appellate lawyer, in order to try and win this election as he's done in court to win his case?"
