    HOUSTON, Texas – Continuing to build a robust national and Michigan organization, Cruz for President today named Wendy Day, the current Vice Chair of the Michigan Republican Party and Liberty movement leader, as the Michigan State Director for the Cruz for President Campaign. “Wendy is a great fit because she is no stranger to grassroots politics at every level,” said Ted Cruz. “Her influence in the Great Lake State and commitment to freedom make her a valued member of our team.” Wendy is one of the most respected, hardworking grassroots leaders Michigan has seen, said Cruz State Chairman Saul Anuzis....
  • Cruz Throws Back Gay Question To Reporter: "Do You Have A Personal Animosity Against Christians?"

    Presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz made a campaign stop in Beaumont, TX on Tuesday, May 19. He was asked repeatedly by Kevin Steele from KMBT-TV about the issue of gay marriage, to which Cruz responds by turning the tables. (via Joe Walsh) SEN. TED CRUZ: Let me ask a question: Is there something about the left, and I am going to put the media in this category, that is obsessed with sex? Why is it the only question you want to ask concerns homosexuals? Okay, you can ask those questions over and over and over again. I recognize that you're...

    Trevor Loudon, the New Zealand conservative activist who has devoted himself in recent years to exposing President Obama as an “enemy within,” joined Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt on his radio program last month to discuss his upcoming movie, which he hopes will help get Ted Cruz elected president next year, thus saving America and the world.Loudon promised Pratt that his movie “will go way further” than Dinesh D’Souza’s anti-Obama polemics “in exposing the Marxist” Obama. “America stands in the balance, and if America goes down, every Western country will fall, including my own,” he said.Claiming that the president...

    PJ Media's Spengler ^ | May 16, 2015 | David P. Goldman
    Ted Cruz is intellectually arrogant, like Ronald Reagan. The difference is that Reagan masked his arrogance with self-deprecating humor. Sen. Cruz does a Reagan impression that would do a nightclub comedian proud, but he doesn’t have Reagan’s easy and spontaneous humor. One doesn’t think of Reagan as arrogant, but he was in fact the most arrogant leader we have had since Lincoln. He ignored the whole of the foreign policy establishment in his conviction that America stood to win the Cold War and bring down Communism. Then as now, the foreign policy establishment resembled Jonathan Swift’s scientists on the floating...

    As America begins the search for a new president in 2016, many people are tired of the status quo and are looking for an authentic conservative, one who can make a difference and who has shown they are determined to make a difference. There aren’t many who fit that description like Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz. In fact, there are none in the race so far who can match his record of conservatism. And he’s demonstrated an willingness to do more than just mouth conservative platitudes. When most “Republicans” were busy badmouthing ObamaCare but doing absolutely nothing to stop it,...

    Eighteen months away from the 2016 presidential election, two Democrats and six Republicans have formally thrown their hat into the ring. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas was the first Republican to announce his candidacy. Cruz is the son of Cuban immigrants who before his congressional career was the longest-serving Solicitor General in Texas history. This week, Cruz began his ground game in Michigan by announcing his new state chairman. Saul Anuzis served as chairman of the Michigan Republican Party from 2005 to 2009. Later, he was a candidate for the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee. Now, as part of...

Ted Cruz (R) for president. Pressler, who in 2012 hosted a large group of evangelical leaders who voted to coalesce their support behind Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign as a challenge to frontrunner Mitt Romney, said he announced his endorsement of Cruz at a meeting of conservatives in Washington Saturday. “I feel that Ted Cruz is electable and he stands by his convictions in an articulate manner,” Pressler said in an interview...

    This should not even be an issue any longer, but there are still some out there who didn't get the legal memo. First, some history: The origins of the Natural Born Citizenship Clause date back to a letter John Jay (who later authored several of the Federalist Papers and served as our first chief justice) wrote to George Washington, then president of the Constitutional Convention, on July 25, 1787. At the time, as Justice Joseph Story later explained in his influential Commentaries on the Constitution, many of the framers worried about “ambitious foreigners who might otherwise be intriguing for the...

    Pamela Geller endorsed Ted Cruz for President Sunday, but hardly anyone noticed. The activist and outspoken critic of Islamic extremists made the endorsement in a Sunday blog post titled "Ted Cruz on Jihad in Texas: ‘Thankfully one police officer helped them meet their virgins.’” Though that headline doesn't offer a clue about her decision to back the Senator from Texas in the 2016 election, she didn't bury the political lede. Here are her first two paragraphs: I endorse Cruz for 2016. The media is going to try to use this against him. But they have been thoroughly discredited in the...

    You don’t have to like Sen. Ted Cruz, or even agree with him, to find offense in a recent line of questioning he endured. More than awkwardness, Mark Halperin offered a stunning small-mindedness as he attempted to tease out Cruz’s Hispanic bona fides: What Cuban food did he like growing up? Which Cuban music does he favor today? Would he welcome fellow Sen. Bernie Sanders to the presidential race, “and I’d like you to do it, if you would, en espańol”? Halperin, famed for co-authoring the book Game Change on the 2012 presidential campaign and prominent today for his analysis...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | May 1, 2015 | Mary Sanchez
    "....Like his fellow GOP presidential hopeful, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Cruz cannot count on a certain rapport with Latino voters simply because he is Latino himself. Trust doesn't work that way, not in life and not in politics. Hispanic voters are weary of being targeted as a desirable voter demographic to be flattered but not much more. They can spot the phony. To many critics, Cruz has tried to court two mistresses: tea party conservatives, on the one hand, and Hispanic voters whom he views as ready for takeover by the GOP. Cruz believes, with some justification, that Latinos...

    When Sen. Ted Cruz brought national campaign consultant Jeff Roe to Houston to run his insurgent campaign for president, he knew he was getting the “bad boy” of Missouri politics. He knew from experience, having himself felt the bad boy’s sting. In 2012, during his high-stakes battle with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst for the GOP nomination in Texas’ U.S. Senate race, his likeness was plastered over a Chinese flag in an eye-popping pamphlet attacking Cruz’s past legal representation of a company with ties to the Chinese government. “Mr. Cruz betrayed our country,” the pamphlet read.

He will also have air support.” TCAF says its most prominent air feature will be the “Ted Cruz Blimp,” but it also plans on recruiting “antique aircraft, towed aerial banners, light sport aircraft … [and] parachutes.” Member of TCAF Jerry Collette says he’s going to do everything he can...

On the eve of remarks to the Republican Jewish Coalition, the White House contender laid out bullet points for his approach to the Middle East in an interview with the Washington Examiner that would sharply rebuke Obama's eight years.

    Senator Ted Cruz has positioned himself as a strong opponent of same-sex marriage, urging pastors nationwide to preach in support of marriage as an institution between a man and a woman, which he said was “ordained by God.” But on Monday night, at a reception for him at the Manhattan apartment of two prominent gay hoteliers, the Texas senator and Republican presidential hopeful struck quite a different tone. During the gathering, according to two people present, Mr. Cruz said he would not love his daughters any differently if one of them was gay. He did not mention his opposition to...

    Evidence from the student newspaper of Princeton’s college newspaper shows that the young Ted Cruz was a defender of women’s rights and not the anti-woman oaf. Cruz favored instituting a patrol program at Princeton to cut down on violence and sexual assaults against women on campus, according to the Daily Princetonian on September 20, 1990. Cruz also was a member of the campus safety committee on campus. He called for spending money to address the problem of date rape on campus instead of a costly $700,000 program to institute locks. “Money should be spent on increasing proctor presence — especially...

    It's no secret that Ted Cruz is running hard to the right as he pursues the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. The strategy is pretty clear: He's pushing to out-conservative the rest of the field. Cruz wants, as he says repeatedly on the campaign trail, to lead a "grassroots army" of "courageous conservatives." But how would the tea party Texan win over the independents and Democrats needed in the general election? That's the question Cruz got at a New Hampshire gun range Sunday afternoon from a Cruz fan who had driven up from Massachusetts to express his concerns, in person, about...

Ted Cruz was born in 1970, six years after events refuted a theory on which he is wagering his candidacy. The 1964 theory was that many millions of conservatives abstained from voting because the GOP did not nominate sufficiently deep-dyed conservatives. So if in 1964 the party would choose someone like Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater, hitherto dormant conservatives would join the electorate in numbers sufficient for victory. This theory was slain by a fact — actually, 15,951,378 facts....

    Some high-five material for Cruz fans from WaPo and PPP. A little post-announcement bounce here or something more? In the contest for the Republican nomination, Bush tops the field with 20 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents saying they would support him if their primary or caucus were held today. He is followed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 13 percent and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 12 percent. Five other Republicans receive at least 6 percent support, with an additional six candidates at either 2 or 1 percent. Bush, Cruz and Walker are the only three to register noticeable...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | April 1, 2015 | Matthew Boyle
    HOUSTON, Texas — Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) tells Breitbart News that if he’s elected President, one of his first actions will be to undo all of President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders. “Absolutely,” Cruz replied when asked if one of the first things he would do if elected would be to undo all of Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in Houston. The next 20 months are going to be very dangerous because President Obama, unfortunately, seems to have decided to disregard the United States Congress and disregard the American people and instead is trying...
  • 5 reasons why Ted Cruz would make a great president

    The Houston Examiner ^ | April 1, 2015 | Marv Dumon
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R, Texas) is the first Republican candidate for president. Here's five reasons why the junior senator from Texas would make a great president. 1 Cruz is an exceptionally bright individual. (Harvard, Princeton alumni) He'll appeal to conservatives and potentially intellectuals who seek reforms out of Washington. 2 The Texas senator shows flashes of Reaganite effectiveness. Ronald Reagan brought conservative change that lifted America out of Carter's leftist abyss. 3 Cruz is a pro-life candidate--an important position given Hollywood's condescending view towards human life by way of violence, revenge porn, and similar themes that negatively influence our culture....

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has a chance to do very well in the 2016 presidential contest. He also could stall at the gate. His combined prospects make him the most difficult of the candidates to forecast, particularly when considering whether he will have staying power. Cruz has obvious positives. First, his ability to excite and motivate the Republican base voter is unquestioned, and is likely his most important asset toward winning an inordinately crowded 2016 nomination fight. Second, he will have a strong grassroots presence, also a critical component for doing well in the first four states of Iowa (caucus),...
  • PPP Poll: Ted Cruz enters top tier of GOP hopefuls

    04/01/2015 1:24:04 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 20 replies
    PPP's newest Republican national poll finds that Ted Cruz has the big momentum following the official announcement of his candidacy last week. His support has increased from 5% to 16% in just over a month, enough to make him one of three candidates in the top tier of GOP contenders, along with Scott Walker and Jeb Bush. Walker continues to lead the field with 20%, although that's down from his 25% standing a month ago. Bush continues to poll at 17%, followed by Cruz at 16%, Ben Carson and Rand Paul at 10%, Marco Rubio and Mike Huckabee at 6%,...
  • Why Latino ‘leaders’ reject Ted Cruz

    The New York Post ^ | March 31, 2015 | Mike Gonzalez
    Ted Cruz’s official campaign isn’t even two weeks old, and already it’s done the nation a favor — by highlighting the duplicity of the “multicultural” left and what it is really after. Ever since Cruz announced his candidacy for president, “Latino leaders” have been stepping all over themselves to declare that not only does he not speak for Hispanics (something only they presumably do) but he’s not even a “legitimate” Hispanic. All of which serves to pull the curtain back on multiculturalism: Defined by liberals, it’s a concept that exists solely to advance liberal objectives. It’s not ancestry that makes...

    Has anyone used this term yet? I think it is an accurate and fitting description of what is happening. Just like they feared Sarah, they are fearing Ted.
