HOUSTON, Texas – Today the Cruz for President campaign continued to build on its strong Georgia leadership team with endorsements from major Georgia leaders including Georgia School Superintendent Richard Woods and Georgia Senate President Pro Tempore David Shafer.

"I am thrilled to announce such outstanding additions to our Georgia leadership team," Cruz stated. "These leaders are some of Georgia's top conservative leaders and they add to our incredible list of courageous conservatives from all across the Peach State."

"On Super Tuesday, we have the great opportunity to move the only consistent, constitutional, Christian conservative candidate closer to becoming the Republican nominee for President. The importance of this election cannot be understated as the future of our amazing nation hangs in the balance. Thus, I am asking all of Georgia to join me in supporting Ted Cruz on Tuesday as we go to the ballot box," said Georgia School Superintendent Richard Woods.

"Ted Cruz is the candidate with a consistent commitment to conservative principles," Shafer stated. "I believe he has the courage to break through the dysfunction of our federal government."

The new endorsements give Cruz a total of two statewide elected officials, two current or former members of Congress, ten current and former state senators, twelve current and former state representatives, congressional chairs in all fourteen Georgia congressional districts, and over 130 county chairs leading his Georgia campaign.

The full list of new Georgia endorsements is:
