Senator Ted Cruz is a Republican Senator from Texas, and running for President. In Texas, before the primaries, the major papers made their endorsements.
The people who know Ted Cruz the best, have decided that they would endorse - Anyone but Ted Cruz!!!
Ted Cruz is so hated that even his home state newspapers will endorse anyone but him and what they had to say about him is absolutely embarrassing.
Despite being the only presidential candidate from the Lone Star State, the three major newspapers in Texas refused to endorse the Tea Party Senator, citing his dangerous agenda.
According to the San Antonio Express-News,
“The freshman senator has demonstrated a frightening willingness to push the American economy to the brink of disaster to pursue his ideological agenda — even when he clearly does not have the votes to get his way…The freshman senator’s methodical run for the White House is obviously well-planned, but Cruz’s self-centered approach has thoroughly alienated even his Republican Senate colleagues. And that is obviously a recipe for a weak, unsuccessful administration. He lacks the temperament to be president.
A nice list:
* alienate people
What happens when you get a list of character traits like that?
Wisconsin Legislators are falling over themselves to endorse you!
Duey Stroebel was the "winner" and gets to run the "Cruz for President" Wisconsin campaign(because its not like he has a taxpayer funded job that takes up his time at all).
Stroebel, who ran for Congress in 2014 but lost in the Republican primary, said he was impressed with Cruz's stand in Iowa against ethanol subsidies, a move that angered the state's powerful ethanol lobby and led to Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad calling for Cruz's defeat. Cruz won nonetheless.
"He put a dagger in the heart of what is truly an institution to the people of Iowa," Stroebel said. "He has shown he's a stalwart, he's unwavering."
Other Wisconsin lawmakers endorsing Cruz are Reps. André Jacque, Jesse Kremer, Dean Knudson, Adam Neylon, Bob Gannon and David Craig. Stroebel said more would be announced in the weeks leading up to the primary. Cruz was campaigning this week in South Carolina ahead of its primary on Saturday, and he has not announced any Wisconsin stops yet.
