MIAMI, FL – Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz announced today the endorsement of former Republican Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina during a rally in Miami, Florida.
“Carly Fiorina is a strong, principled leader and woman of faith,” said Cruz. “Our campaign is stronger with her leadership and her voice. Her story embodies the promise that in America anyone can start as a secretary and become a Fortune 50 CEO. Carly speaks the truth with courage, doesn’t back down to the Washington powerbrokers, and terrifies Hillary and the Democrats. We are blessed to have her support, and together I am confident we will continue to unite conservatives so that every American has the opportunity to achieve the unimaginable.”
“Ted Cruz is a fearless fighter for our constitutional rights. He has spent his life protecting Americans’ God-given liberties, and he has always stood by his word. Unlike the status-quo political class in D.C., Ted Cruz didn’t cower when he got to Washington – he stood unequivocally for the American people. I know Ted, and he’ll do the same as president,” said Carly Fiorina.

The Conservative Business League of New Hampshire
to hold Press Conference March 7th
The Conservative Business League of New Hampshire (CBL-NH), the sister organization of the 603 Alliance, will host a Press Conference on Monday, March 7, at 1:00 p.m. in the lobby of the Legislative Office Building (LOB) in Concord.
Americans for Prosperity (AFP) will co-host this Press Conference. Its purpose is to call attention to the way in which businesses are adversely affected by the proposed Medicaid Expansion and to offer suggestions for ways that the current program can be resolved for the betterment of all New Hampshire citizens.
Not only has Greg Abbot know Cruz for many years, but he selected and trusted Cruz as the state’s Solicitor General, where Ted ran an office with hundreds of attorneys, and argued some of the most critical constitutional cases before the Supreme Court.
Quite a coup to be endorsed by both current and former governors of Texas, AND to be trusted by both of them to keep Washington of our backs. Go Ted!
Recorded at Alpine Grove, where the Cruz post-primary party was held. Apologies for the poor focus during the speech – the lighting fooled the autofocus. What you can see is a good crowd, and lots of press – the main press platform at the rear overflowed, there were two rows of tables for reporters, and a separate table at the side where NPR set up.
There was a lot of excitement, and Ted’s speech was very well received, indeed, the room became raucous during his key lines:
Conservative? Ted fell in love with the Constitution and US history in middle school. Pastor Rafael Cruz says conservatism is hereditary – he learned it from his kid!
Smart and persuasive? A top debater, Cruz was praised by liberal law professor Alan Dershowitz, who called Ted one of the smartest students ever to attend Harvard Law.
Knows how the Supreme Court works – clerked for Chief Justice William Rehnquist.
Knows how to reduce regulation? As Steve points out at Granite Grok, during Ted’s stint at the Commerce Department, he worked to prevent regulation of Internet commerce.
Can run a large organization? As Solicitor General of Texas, Cruz led a team of hundreds of attorneys and their staff, and was considered extremely effective.
Protect and defend the Constitution? The state of Texas, under AG Abbott and Solicitor General Cruz, argued multiple constitutional cases before the Supreme Court, to great effect on the side of originalism.
Knows how to win? Cruz ran for senate against a very well funded establishment favorite, former Lt Gov David Dewhurst, and beat all odds with a convincing win in the final runoff (multiple contenders). It is worth noting, that while Gov Rick Perry supported Dewhurst in that race, he has since carefully evaluated and endorsed Ted Cruz for President.
