Texans for Fiscal Responsibility
Texans for Fiscal Responsibility today offered its endorsement to Ted Cruz in the 2016 presidential primary.

“Ted Cruz is a principled, commonsense conservative who has done in Washington precisely what he said he was going to do,” said Michael Quinn Sullivan, the president of TFR. “Ted Cruz has taken on the Washington establishment cartel of Democrats and liberal Republicans, unabashedly defending our constitutional liberties and promoting the principles of liberty.”

Texas’ primary election begins with early voting from Tuesday, Feb. 16 through Friday, Feb. 26. Election day is Tuesday, March 1.

"I appreciate the support of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility. I'm committed to scrubbing the budget of unconstitutional spending to ensure taxpayer dollars are spent wisely," said Cruz. "No responsible parent would leave their children with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt; we should not allow the government to do this to our children and grandchildren either. It’s time for Washington to tighten its belt – no more reckless spending or handing out favors to K-Street lobbyists while hard-working Americans are left to foot the bill."

In the open-seat election for the U.S. Senate, Cruz was not predicted to defeat his wealthy opponent in a multi-candidate primary. Yet Cruz won despite being strongly outspent and roundly attacked by the media and establishment pundits.

“Americans are tired of politicians who worm their way up to the seat of crony power in Washington, DC. People are looking for statesmen who will overturn that table and shine a light in the darkness that has engulfed our nation’s Capitol,” added Sullivan. "Ted Cruz and proven time and again that he isn't beholden to, or intimidated by, the paper tigers in the Washington cartel of influence peddlers and crony corporate subsidizers. As his record demonstrates over and over, Americans can trust Ted Cruz to do what he promises."

In considering the presidential candidates, Texans for Fiscal Responsibility compared the public statements and governing records of the candidates, as well as considered input from the grassroots organization’s subscribers. TFR is the largest grassroots organization in the Lone Star State focused on budget and governance issues.

“Republicans have an embarrassment of riches in this field of GOP presidential candidates, but Ted Cruz has demonstrated an unwavering loyalty to the principles of liberty embodied in our constitution. Texas taxpayers are strongly supporting Ted Cruz, and we’re honored to stand alongside them.”
