Senator Cruz Thanks You
In July of 2015, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund began the process of a 2016 presidential endorsement by surveying our supporters to determine where you stood on the idea of an endorsement. The results were that you overwhelmingly wanted us to endorse. Through the final months of 2015, we held multiple webinars with Local Tea Party leaders and activists, we surveyed more, and we finalized the extensive endorsement process. In January we launched a four round balloting process that featured the entire field of Republican candidates and narrowed each week until the top two choices were featured on the final ballot. Each week during that process we held webinars and distributed surveys to ask our supporters if they wanted us to continue with the endorsement process. And every week our supporters told us to push forward. When the balloting process had ended, more than 100,000 ballots were cast and in the final round of balloting Senator Cruz came out on top with 70% of the vote.
After Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund endorsed Senator Ted Cruz for the Republican nomination for President, legal barriers prohibiting coordination between his campaign and our Super PAC prevented us from communicating with him about the work we were doing to help push him to victory. Now that the primaries are over and we have had a chance to catch up with Senator Cruz, he wanted to express his gratitude for all of the hard work you did on his behalf. Please see the letter below that he asked us to share with you.
While Senator Cruz came up short in the primaries, we still have work to do. Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona is being targeted by the establishment in his primary bid this year. The establishment already took down one Freedom Caucus member this cycle, and we can’t afford to lose another one in Gosar. One of the biggest things you can do to help is sign up to make volunteer phone calls to help get out the vote for Rep. Gosar in Arizona. Can we count on you to help keep this freedom fighter in Congress?
