Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Endorses Ted Cruz Ahead of WI Primary
Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) announced his support for Ted Cruz Friday morning.
Vos previously backed Marco Rubio for the Republican presidential nomination.
While Vos urged people in Wisconsin to support Cruz in a statement, Vos said he expects to support whoever becomes the Republican nominee.
Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement:
“Wisconsin Republicans have a very important choice to make in the April 5th presidential primary.
“While I am still very disappointed that Marco Rubio is no longer a choice in the race, I have decided to support Ted Cruz.
“Beating Hillary Clinton should be the primary goal of every Republican voter who casts their ballot on April 5th.
“The only questions left for voters to consider are who can win the nomination and who can win the general election. Using those criteria, the choice is obvious – Senator Ted Cruz.
“Ted Cruz has the most viable chance to beat the Democratic nominee. I believe he has always been a principled voice for conservative values. I know he loves our country and as our President he will do everything he can to defend America and the constitution.
“Under President Obama, our nation has gone seriously off-track. We need to rally around a leader who holds the conservative values our party has long espoused: economic opportunity for all, lower taxes, fewer government regulations, more personal freedom and a strong military.
“I expect to support the eventual Republican nominee, but today, I ask Wisconsin Republicans to join me in voting for Ted Cruz in the April primary.”
