Ever wonder why Canadian born Ted Cruz is polling high in the Republican presidential nomination process? Well wonder no more.
Ted Cruz has figured out just how crazy the Republican base is. Heck, look at the HUGE support they’ve dropped in the lap of Donald Trump. So with that in mind, Cruz is pandering to the side of the Republican party he can identify with – the crazies. And to pacify their thirst for pure insanity, Cruz is actively campaigning with the likes of Michele Bachmann, Peter King and Louie Gohmert to name a few.
Lawmakers like Reps. Steve King of Iowa and Mo Brooks of Alabama are attending campaign rallies with Cruz…So far, Reps. Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma, and Louie Gohmert and John Ratcliffe of Texas have been surrogates for Cruz at Republican debates. And Bridenstine recently hosted an event in Tulsa and did an Internet ad for the campaign pushing back against Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s attacks on Cruz’s national security credentials. Other lawmakers who have endorsed Cruz include Texas Reps. Randy Weber, Brian Babin, Michael Burgess and John Culberson. Reps. Jody Hice of Georgia, Sam Graves of Missouri and Dana Rohrabacher of California are also behind Cruz.
