Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) is endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for president. “Ted is a man of great intellect, great courage, and the right principles,” Rohrabacher stated. “Having worked so closely with Ronald Reagan, I can identify Reagan’s best traits in Ted Cruz. Under Ted’s leadership we can put America back on the right track.”
“I am thrilled to have Dana’s support in this campaign,” Cruz responded to the endorsement. “Dana is one of the most ardent champions of freedom around the world and a courageous conservative here at home. For over a quarter century, he has fought for lower taxes and government spending. I’m proud to call Dana a friend and our campaign is further strengthened by his support.”
Rohrabacher released a full statement detailing why he believes Cruz should be President of the United States:
Today I enthusiastically endorse Senator Ted Cruz in his bid for President of the United States. Ted is a man of great intellect great courage and the right principles. Having worked so closely with Ronald Reagan, I can identify Reagan’s best traits in Ted Cruz. Under Ted’s leadership we can put America back on the right track. Ted has more foreign policy experience than Ronald Reagan did when he became President. But he has the same focus on what’s in the best interest of the American people. Like Reagan, he doesn’t apologize for facing foreign policy challenges in a strong and forceful manner but at the same time he realizes that we should not be belligerent toward others who might want to work with us to achieve specific goals nor are we the policemen of the world.
I have no doubt that Ted will reaffirm America’s leadership in thwarting evils like radical Islamic terrorism. Ted is a real freedom fighter both at home and abroad and he’s the kind of statesman we need to ensure that Americans will live in security, prosperity and freedom. Consistent with that, Ted is the toughest and most realistic of the candidates on the issue of illegal immigration. Like me, he would prevent illegal immigrants from taking jobs and government benefits that should go to Americans and legal immigrants, thus eliminating the major attraction that draws illegal immigrants into our country.
Rohrabacher is serving his 13th term in Congress and serves as the Chairman of the Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
