Cruz Campaign Press Release - 50 Additional Wisconsin Faith Leaders Endorse Cruz Over the Weekend

April 05, 2016

"Ted Cruz Has Demonstrated That He is a Man of Faith and Principle"

HOUSTON, Texas - Presidential candidate Ted Cruz today welcomed the endorsements of more than 50 additional Wisconsin clergy and faith leaders, who joined Team Cruz over the weekend. This announcement follows the endorsement of 50 Wisconsin faith leaders last week. With more than 100 Wisconsin clergy and faith leaders adding their support, the campaign now enjoys the public support of more than 1,100 clergy and faith leaders.

"Ted Cruz has demonstrated that he is a man of faith and principle," said Pastor Wayne Devrou of Grace Bible Fellowship in Oostburg. "He was raised with, and exhibits, the character and desire to stand on principles - not only for political reasons, but for personal ones. His record confirms that he does what he says he will do. In Washington, Ted has been a principled leader and an advocate for religious liberty and constitutional conservatism. Ted has earned my respect and I'm pleased to be one of many clergy who have pledged their support for Ted. We urge people of faith in Wisconsin to cast their votes in support of a conservative champion."

"I am thrilled to have received so much support from faith leaders and clergy in Wisconsin," said Cruz. "Our system of government requires the participation of men and women of integrity, faith, and courage. These leaders have taken the time to research the candidates and make their conclusions known. With their support, and the support of organizations such as Catholic Vote, the Wisconsin Right to Life PAC, and Wisconsin Family Action PAC, we look forward to a strong performance in the Wisconsin primary tonight."
