    Rep. Mo Brooks endorses Ted Cruz for president

    Rep. Mo Brooks endorses Ted Cruz for president


    It comes as no surprise but it’s now official: U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks has endorsed Ted Cruz for president.

    Brooks lauded Cruz’s entry into the race in March, hosted Cruz during a campaign stop in Brooks’ hometown of Huntsville in August and the congressman has now removed all asterisks of not endorsing Cruz despite overwhelming support.

    According to an announcement from the Cruz campaign, Brooks is running as a delegate in support of Cruz for the Alabama Republican primary and Brooks will also serve as chair of Cruz’s Alabama leadership team.

    “I am honored to have the support of Congressman Brooks, who has been a leading conservative voice in the House of Representatives,” Cruz said in the statement. “I am thrilled to have him lead our campaign efforts in Alabama and thankful for his partnership in fighting the Washington Cartel and working to restore and protect jobs, growth, and individual liberty across our nation.”

    In a statement, Brooks said Cruz represents the GOP’s best shot at defeating presumed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

    “America needs a president with both a keen intellect and understanding of the foundational principles that have made America great and the backbone to defend and promote those foundational principles in the face of intense political pressure to do the wrong thing,” Brooks said. “Ted Cruz’s record proves he has the intellect, strength of character, and backbone to do what is best for America in the face of stiff political winds that seek to blow our nation off course.

    “I wholeheartedly endorse Ted Cruz for President and encourage Americans to support Ted Cruz because he not only has what it takes to make a great President, he also has what it takes to best expose and defeat the Hillary Clinton machine in 2016.

    This is a fantastic endorsement! Rep. Mo Brooks has an A+ immigration-reduction report card at NumbersUSA. Serving as chair to Cruz's Alabama leadership team, he should prove to be a very valuable asset to the Cruz team. https://www.numbersusa.com/content/m...resheet/recent

    Cruz has received 20 congressional endorsements, including those from conservative hawks Reps. Steve King of Iowa, Louie Gohmert of Texas and Mo Brooks of Alabama.

    What's your point? Those number have absolutely nothing to do with how strong an ally Rep. Mo Brooks has been to our cause.

    Our cause had nothing to do with my post. My post was in reply to your claim that Cruz has 20 Congressional Endorsements, and I'm thinking well, based on the low approval rating of Congress, that's probably not helpful.

    To some extent you may be right. However, I think the individual's are more important in this instance. For example, the last two endorsements Cruz has received have been great on the immigration and border security issue (Rep. Brooks & Rep Meadows). Not sure where all the others stand ..... guess I'll have to check it out.
