• Ted Cruz: ‘I Don’t Believe Donald Trump Is Going to Be Our Nominee’

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) predicted at a campaign stop in Iowa Monday  that he doesn’t believe Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump will not be the GOP nominee.
    “Let me be very clear, I don’t believe Donald Trump is going to be our nominee,” Cruz said. “I don’t think he’s going to be our president. And I actually think the men and women in this room have something powerful to say.”
    Cruz said voters are drawn to his campaign because of his record of of standing up to Democrats and Republicans leaders in Washington and said he was grateful that Trump is in the race because he is fighting Washington.
    “I think the reason people got excited about Donald Trump is they’re fed up with Washington. And they’re fed up with politicians in both parties who lie to us, who don’t tell the truth and don’t do what they said they would do,” Cruz said. “I am immensely grateful that Donald Trump is running and I think that it has actually been enormously beneficial to our campaign. Why? Because Trump has helped frame the central question of this primary as: Who will stand up to Washington?”
     “We are seeing conservatives uniting behind our campaign,” he continued. “And the reason, I think it is quite straight forward, people are tired of what I call campaign conservatives.”
    Cruz, who has  been the only candidate to refrain from attacking Trump, took a shot at the billionaire business magnate last week for calling for
    a national registry for American Muslims.

    “I’m a big fan of Donald Trump’s but I’m not a fan of government registries of American citizens,” Cruz said in Iowa, according to Politico. “The First Amendment protects religious liberty, I’ve spent the past several decades defending religious liberty.”

    The Texas senator has steadily risen in the polls in recent weeks and has surged into second place in Iowa behind trump, according to according to a Quinnipiac University poll last week.
