HOUSTON, Texas – U.S. Sen.

Arizona is a winner-take-all state that holds its primary on March 22, 2016. These leadership team members join previously announced Arizona State Director Constantin Querard.
"I am excited to have the support of such an accomplished group of conservatives in Arizona," said Sen. Cruz. "Their experience and depth of political knowledge in the state is a tremendous resource for our campaign. Our growing team of grassroots activists and political leaders across the country is helping to spread our message, build our organization and raise the resources we'll need to be competitive for the long run."
"Arizona is a great state for conservatives and has led the way when it comes to financial responsibility, creating a pro-growth environment, restoring Constitutional rights, and fighting to secure our border. So it is no surprise that a courageous conservative like Senator Cruz is inspiring so many of us," Cruz for President Arizona State Director Constantin Querard said.
