Perry: ‘Cruz Is Without a Doubt the Intellectual Giant That’s Left’ on the Stage


Friday on CNN, former Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) said Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) ” is without a doubt, the intellectual giant that’s left on the stage here.”

Perry said, “Well, I think the work that he’s done is really paying off now, and being the adult in the room when you talk about whether it’s foreign policy or whether it’s issues of economics, Ted Cruz is without a doubt, the intellectual giant that’s left on the stage here, and it’s a two person race, I mean, although Kasich is there, it’s a two person race. It’s between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. So what I expect is it’s going to be difficult for anyone to get to that 1237 delegate count, to get the nomination. I think we’re headed toward a contested contest, if you will, a contested convention. And at that particular point in time, I think Ted Cruz is very, very well situated to get the nomination. I think by far when you look at these numbers now and look at the things that Donald Trump has said that has offended a host of people across the country, women in particular this last week, then you’re going to see Ted Cruz be a very, very strong contender, and I think he will thrash Hillary Clinton in a general election. And I think you’re starting to see that from a lot of folks. She is truly a flawed candidate, and Ted Cruz is going to do quite well.”
