Constitutional scholar, best-selling author, and leading radio talk show host Mark Levin has announced his long-awaited presidential endorsement and he used his new multimedia platform, LevinTV, as the venue to announce it.
Mark Levin started out as neutral in the race and has remained that way for quite some time. He has hosted several of the various candidates on his popular radio program. After listening to all the candidates and following their policies and positions, he made the decision to endorse constitutional conservative Ted Cruz for President of the United States.
“I support Ted Cruz for the president of the United States because I believe everything I’ve just discussed with you he appreciates, he embraces, he understands, and he has fought for throughout his life, too,” Levin said. “That is the Constitution, the Republic, individual sovereignty, separation of powers, the Bill of Rights, family, faith, a secure border, our national security.”
“Nobody’s perfect — my great idol Ronald Reagan wasn’t perfect — so it’s not that we seek perfection or that we look for nitpicking ways to oppose somebody,” Levin continued. “No, we look at the whole picture — you take the whole life of the individual — you look at their entire career over a period of time.”
Ted Cruz is easily the most consistently conservative in the presidential race, even when the crowded field included 17 candidates. Cruz has also a proven track record of defending the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution before the Supreme Court on issues like protecting the First Amendment guarantee of religious liberty and the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms (which shall not be infringed).
Mark Levin’s joins another top conservative talk show host, Glenn Beck, in endorsing the Texas senator, and comes not a moment too soon, with several key states up for grabs next Tuesday.
