In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” on Tuesday, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, announced he was endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for president of the United States.
“I have many friends in this race, but I believe the one who is best positioned, best prepared to lead this nation forward, pulling it out of the tailspin this President has put us in, I believe it is Ted Cruz,” Perkins said. “He is smart, he is bold, much like you, he is not afraid to upset people to do the right thing.”
“He’s done exactly what he said he was going to do when he ran for United States Senate,” he added. “I supported him when he was an underdog against some friends. I believe he’s the right guy to lead this country forward.”
