David Dewhurst: I formed a business from scratch; bring that to government

At Friday's U.S. Senate debate between David Dewhurst and Ted Cruz, Dewhurst said, "I formed a business from scratch and built it up. Then I tried to take my business skills to Austin and we've created the very best economy in the entire country."

Cruz responded, "My record is one of spending a lifetime of fighting to defend the Constitution and winning on a national level."

Tom Leppert: I'm a career businessman; I've actually created jobs

In his attempt to set himself apart from the other candidates, Leppert pitched his experience as a career businessman before entering politics. "I don't only talk about creating jobs and cutting spending, I've actually done it," the former Dallas mayor said.

Leppert suggested that Texans needed a senator who wasn't a career politician like Dewhurst, lacking in business experience like Cruz, or inexperienced holding elected office like James.
