Texans for Fiscal Responsibility announced in a video and statement Monday its endorsement of Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“Ted Cruz is a principled, commonsense conservative who has done in Washington precisely what he said he was going to do,” said Michael Quinn Sullivan, the president of TFR, in a video. “Ted Cruz has taken on the Washington establishment cartel of Democrats and liberal Republicans, unabashedly defending our constitutional liberties by promoting the principles of liberty.”

“I appreciate the support of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility. I’m committed to scrubbing the budget of unconstitutional spending to ensure taxpayer dollars are spent wisely,” said Cruz.

“No responsible parent would leave their children with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt; we should not allow the government to do this to our children and grandchildren either,” Cruz said. “It’s time for Washington to tighten its belt – no more reckless spending or handing out favors to K-Street lobbyists while hard-working Americans are left to foot the bill.”
