Former Attorney General and conservative leader Ken Cuccinelli has endorsed Ted Cruz for President. In his endorsement at a rally in Mechanicsville today Cuccinelli said this about Ted Cruz:
[Cruz is] someone who is committed to protecting life and family and their privacy in our society, who knows the judiciary. Senator Cruz clerked for Chief Justice Rehnquist, not Justice Kennedy, not Justice Ginsburg.”
Cuccinelli went on to say for the first time in his life he has given the maximum contribution to a Presidential candidate.
And many of you know how cheap I am,” Cuccinelli said. “That hurts. I want you to give until it hurts.
Ted Cruz commented on the Omnibus bill:
‘I think this … was a betrayal of the men and women who elected us,’ Cruz said. ‘All across this country, people are frustrated out of their minds. They’re frustrated because we keep winning elections as conservatives and then Republican leaders keep advancing Barack Obama’s agenda.
‘This is stunning. This is a trillion dollar deal, thousands of pages, cut in the dark of night. It funds all of Obamacare, funds all the executive actions. It funds all of Planned Parenthood. It does nothing to stop this catastrophic Iranian nuclear deal. It does nothing to stop President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s indefensible plan to bring tens of thousands of Syrian refugees to America even though the head of the FBI says they cannot vet those refugees to determine if they’re ISIS terrorists.’
