Senator Ted Cruz is planning three stops in Oklahoma this week bolstered by his impressive performance in the recent presidential debate and a growing list of endorsements including from Rep. Jim Bridenstine (OK-1 Dist.) of Tulsa who will join him in OKC, Bartlesville and Tulsa.
In a recent op-ed, Bridenstine wrote:
“Beating Hillary Clinton requires a Republican nominee who will energize all elements of the Republican Party: fiscal conservatives, national security conservatives, values voters, and constitutional conservatives.
“Nominating a milquetoast Republican who fails to gain the support of the whole party will cripple Republican enthusiasm and shrink turnout just as it has in previous elections. Since the media is going to chastise Republicans for rejecting the liberal agenda, let’s nominate a solid conservative, energize the Republican Party, and win,” Bridenstine noted.
“I have seen Sen. Ted Cruz meet the test by standing up to the Washington Cartel. In 2013, when both political parties suggested we needed to change our approach to the Second Amendment, Sen. Ted Cruz fought back and came out the winner,” Bridenstine continued. “In the same year, when both political parties were moving at breakneck speed to pass a comprehensive immigration bill that included amnesty, Sen. Ted Cruz once again fought back, stood against the Washington Cartel, and came out the winner.
“Some say he stands alone, but I say he stands with the American people. I saw that most clearly when he fought with everything he had to defund Obamacare. He told Republicans that funding Obamacare subsidies would create a dependency that Congress would never repeal and the Supreme Court would never overturn.
“He quoted Ronald Reagan: ‘A government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.’ After June’s Supreme Court ruling, we now know that Ted Cruz was correct,” Bridenstine wrote.
