Gary Bauer Endorses Ted Cruz for President
Conservative leader Gary Bauer announced on Friday he was backing U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for the Republican presidential nomination.
A former presidential candidate himself, Bauer is one of the leading religious and social conservatives active in national politics and has led the Family Research Council and the Campaign for Working Families PAC. He also worked in the Reagan administration, rising to become undersecretary of Education.
“Today, with great pleasure, I am endorsing Ted Cruz for President,” Bauer said. “Ted Cruz is a courageous conservative who has built a consistent record on the issues that matter most. He has fought for religious liberty at home and abroad. He believes all of our children should be welcomed into the world and protected by the law. Ted knows that government is too big and that taxes and regulations are too high. He will rebuild our military strength and pursue a foreign policy that repairs our frayed alliances. Ted Cruz understands that Israel is our friend and that Iran is our enemy. He understands that border security is national security. Last, but certainly not least, Ted Cruz is committed to restoring the rule of law and repealing President Obama's outrageous executive orders.
“Ted Cruz can be trusted to nominate judges who will respect their proper constitutional role and resist the temptation to legislate from the bench,” Bauer added He is the clear choice of Reagan conservatives.”
"I have the highest respect for Gary and his impact on American culture and political life,” said Cruz. “As chairman of President Reagan’s Special Working Group on the Family, Gary brought national attention to the importance of marriage and the family. He has been highlighting the issues that matter and addressing them with courage and intelligence for decades, and our nation is stronger because of it. I am honored to have Gary’s backing on this campaign."
Bauer ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2000 and pulled almost 10 percent in Iowa where Cruz is currently battling Donald Trump.
