Tony Perkins: America May Never Have Another Election If We Don't Elect Ted Cruz

The Family Research Council's Tony Perkins introduced Glenn Beck at a campaign rally for Ted Cruz in South Carolina light night, where he warned that if America does not elect a bold Christian leader like Cruz, the nation might not have another presidential election ever again.

"I'm here because I decided that too much was a stake to sit on the sidelines," Perkins said, "that I couldn't just sit there and talk about it and do commentary about it; that I wanted to use what influence I had with Christians around this country to say that I've talked to all these candidates, I have vetted the candidates and from my vantage point in Washington, D.C., I can tell you America is in trouble."

"We don't have the latitude to get it wrong one more time," he warned. "If we don't elect a bold, courageous, godly leader in this next election, I'm afraid we may not have another election for our republic. That's not hyperbole. That's the reality based upon what this president's policies have done to this nation."

Perkins, who helped rally Religious Right leaders behind Cruz's campaign, made a similar prediction back in 2012, when he repeatedly warned that America would not survive a second Obama presidential term.
