“Conservative values are at his core. He’s principled. He’s fearless. And he has true conviction.” ~ Gov. Greg Abbott on Ted Cruz
Ted Cruz has just landed what could easily be considered the most important endorsement in the key electoral state of Texas.
Popular Republican Governor Greg Abbott announced on Tuesday that he would be throwing his support to Cruz with the Lone Star State’s primary date of March 1 approaching.
In a video announcement, Gov. Abbott states that it is the duty of Texas conservatives to support a leader they can trust to restore the values they believe in.
“Unlike far too many in Washington, the Ted Cruz we’ve seen in the Senate is the same Ted Cruz we elected, and he’s the same Ted Cruz I served with when I was attorney general,” Abbott said.
“Conservative values are at his core. He’s principled. He’s fearless. And he has true conviction,” Abbott declared. “Ted is a constitutionalist whose judgment I trust to appoint the right judges to the United States Supreme Court.”
Abbott then urges fellow Texas conservatives to take the necessary action to take the country back.
“We need to deliver. This is our time. Ted Cruz is our candidate. Now let’s do our part to take this country back,” Abbott said.
Ted Cruz also has the endorsement of former Texas Governor Rick Perry, a former GOP presidential candidate who is the longest service governor in the history of Texas.
