In an interview with host Cliff Sims earlier this week on “Yellowhammer Radio” on 101.1, WYDE in Birmingham, AL, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) sung his praises for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who announced his candidacy for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA earlier this week.
Brooks went as far as suggesting Cruz could be as great as former President Ronald Reagan.
“I believe Ted Cruz would be an excellent president,” Brooks said. “The parallels between Ted Cruz and the way he conducts himself, his belief system, and Ronald Reagan are uncanny. Even now, what is the negative about Ted Cruz? Well, the Democrats, and to some degree the establishment Republican crowd are trying to portray Ted Cruz as a right-wing nut. Well, that’s exactly what those same groups did to Ronald Reagan.”
