David Dewhurst Addresses GOP Convention Without Boos

Updated: Friday, June 8 2012, 12:06 PM CDT
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst addressed the Texas Republican convention largely without boos -- a sign of unity in a party still struggling with deep internal divisions.

The U.S. Senate candidate took the podium with only isolated outcries a day after some delegates booed Gov. Rick Perry when he endorsed Dewhurst during his convention speech.

Dewhurst is competing for the Republican nomination to replace retiring Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison with former state Solicitor General and tea party favorite Ted Cruz.

They face a runoff July 31 after no one in a crowded GOP field won a majority of the senatorial votes cast in last month's primary.

Dewhurst has held the lieutenant governorship since 2003 and is the mainstream Republican choice. But many tea party groups have branded him too moderate.
