Cruz Campaign Press Release - Cruz for President Announces Key Ohio Endorsements

March 14, 2016

Dozens of Buckeye State Christian and Conservative Activists Rally to Cruz

HOUSTON, Texas – Presidential candidate Ted Cruz today announced the endorsements of more than 30 key Ohio leaders, including clergy, elected officials, and activists representing thousands of Ohio voters. As of Monday, more than three dozen pastors have also endorsed Ted Cruz in Ohio. More than 200 county leaders are organizing for Cruz on the ground in Ohio, with at least one in each of the state's 88 counties.

"I am thrilled to announce such outstanding endorsements from Ohio leaders," said Cruz. "These are some of Ohio's top conservative leaders and they add to our incredible list of courageous conservatives from all across the Buckeye State."

"Ted Cruz has a consistent track record of supporting pro-family values," said Phil Burress, Chairman of Citizens for Community Values Action (CCV Action) and a leader in Ohio's initiative to protect natural marriage. "He is the leader we need to defend and protect our God-given rights."

"We believe that in order to have pro-life legislation that protects the lives of all unborn children, we need legislators who believe in the fundamental right to life from the moment of conception, as well as the centrality of the natural family as a fundamental foundation for society," said Molly Smith, President of Cleveland Right to Life, Inc. "Our choice to endorse Ted Cruz for President was based on a number of factors: his strong and committed pro-life and pro-family stances on policy issues, outstanding judicial record, and ability to be successful in his campaign."
