GOP Rep: Ted Cruz Will Pull America Back From ‘The Brink Of Destruction’

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, guest-hosted Family Research Council President Tony Perkins’ “Washington Watch” program on Wednesday, where he spoke to his fellow Tea Party-aligned colleague Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kansas, about the 2016 election.

Both Gohmert and Huelskamp have emerged as vocal supporters of Ted Cruz, whom Huelskamp claimed understands “the principles of life, the family, religious liberty and protecting folks who are just trying to run their business.”

“They go after Christians, they go after our way of life and they’re taking our money,” Huelskamp said of federal officials.

Indeed, Huelskamp was confident that Cruz “is going to fight for those basic foundational principles that built this nation and I think are going to bring us back from the brink of destruction.”
