Ted Cruz Campaigns in Montgomery

By Brandon Moseley

On Saturday, February 27, US Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) will campaign for President of the United States in Montgomery, Alabama.

Cruz’s Alabama Co-Chair, Dr. Chad Mathis, announced the stop late on Friday, February 26.

Sam Cooper who is the regional political co-chair of the Ted Cruz for President Campaign, wrote, “Ted is barnstorming the Super Tuesday states and the tour takes him to Alabama tomorrow! Tomorrow evening at 5:30pm at Blackfinn Ameripub in Montgomery, courageous conservatives across the Alabama will be joining us at a retail stop.”


Cooper said, “We’re coming down the homestretch here with the election in Alabama on March 1st less than 3 days away. With your your help, we will help elect Ted as our President to reignite the promise of America!”

Blackfinn Ameripub is at 6854 East Chase Parkway in Montgomery.

Cruz will also have a rally in the Atlanta, Georgia area at 12:15 p.m. on Saturday.

Sen. Cruz wrote in an email to supporters, “I am the only candidate who’s got a proven track record to contrast and prosecute the case against Hillary and her left-wing ideology. Donald Trump can’t prosecute the political case against Hillary Clinton because he has long supported the same policies on which she has based her campaign. That’s why — in a one-on-one general election matchup — Donald Trump doesn’t stand a chance at defeating Hillary Clinton.”

Cruz continued, “Donald Trump can’t take on Hillary because he is just like her — a liberal New York elitist who supports the same policy priorities — Obamacare, funding for Planned Parenthood, and Wall Street bailouts.” “We can’t risk another four years of failed Obama policies by nominating someone who would lose to Hillary Clinton in November.”

Cruz claimed, “I’m leading all Republicans in Arkansas and Texas, and we are within striking distance of Trump (and ahead of the other candidates) in five more key March 1st, Super Tuesday states — Alabama, Alaska, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Tennessee.”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D), New York City billionaire businessman and reality TV star, Donald Trump (R), US Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida), and former President Bill Clinton will also hold events in Alabama over the weekend.

The Alabama Republican Party is meeting in Mobile to plan strategy and vote on their Executive Committeeman.
