The Pulse Exclusive — Ted Cruz: “Americans Are Tired of Campaign Conservatives”


I had the opportunity to catch up with Sen. Ted Cruz Saturday at the Practical Federalism Forum in New Hampshire:

ThePulse2016: In 30 seconds or less, explain why Americans should vote for you.

Sen. Ted Cruz: I think Americans are tired of campaign conservatives, people who talk a good game on the trail, but they haven’t walked the walk. I think we’re looking for a consistent conservative. Someone who’s been the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. And in the Republican primary, everyone’s talking about how they’re going to fight Washington. Well, the natural next question is: ‘well, when have you actually stood up and done that? When have you taken on the Washington cartel?’ What I’ve tried to do in my time in the Senate is very simple. Two things: Tell the truth, and do what I said I would do. On fight after fight after fight whether it’s stopping Obamacare, stopping amnesty, stopping Planned Parenthood, or stopping the Iran deal, I’ve honored the commitments I’ve made to the men and women who elected me. And that’s exactly what I’ll do as President.
