Religious Right Leader James Dobson To Endorse Ted Cruz

In an interview yesterday with the Washington Post, James Dobson, the influential founder of Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council, revealed that he is likely to endorse Ted Cruz’s presidential bid, noting that the Religious Right is “coalescing around Senator Cruz” thanks to his “strong record on religious liberty, life and marriage.”

Cruz has ramped up his support from the party’s far-right in recent weeks, touting endorsements from an activist who wants abortion doctors executed and others who have linked homosexuality to Ebolatrain crashes and the Holocaust.

While Dobson’s support is unsurprising, it further demonstrates how Cruz is courting — and winning — the support of the leaders of the GOP’s extremist wing.

Dobson has:

  • Alleged that Obamacare will deprive the elderly of life-saving treatments.
  • Insisted that bisexuality means “orgies.”

With a record like that, it is no wonder that he is supporting Ted Cruz.
