Press Release - Former GOP State Chairmen Endorse Ted Cruz for President

January 16, 2016

HOUSTON, Texas — Today, the Cruz for President campaign announced the endorsement of 12 former Republican State Party Chairmen and Republican National Committee members who support Cruz for President.

"Cruz is uniquely qualified to broaden the base of our party reaching Reagan Democrats, Hispanic/Latinos, Catholic, Jewish, Christian and working families to win in November," said Saul Anuzis, former Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party.

"Ted Cruz embodies the principles of the Republican Party — he is a tireless defender of our liberties and the Constitution, an ardent believer in the values we cherish, and he possesses the leadership we so desperately need to keep our nation safe from threats abroad," said Norm Semanko, former Idaho Republican Party Chairman and RNC General Counsel. "I am honored to join this group of Republican Party leaders in support of his candidacy for president."

"I am thrilled to have this group of courageous conservatives join our campaign," said Cruz. "We must come together, as conservatives and fight for the values that have made this country great in order to win the White House. If we do that we will win and we will turn this country around."
