Martin: Ted Cruz can defeat Donald Trump

ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement tonight after the primary election results.

“Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund continues to be proud of the successful campaign Ted Cruz is running. He has consistently proven both the pollsters and the doubters wrong by winning states in all regions of the country. He is the only candidate left who can defeat Donald Trump. Conservative grassroots activists support Ted Cruz because they can trust him to uphold the promises he makes to voters and stand up to the Washington Establishment even if that means standing alone. Our supporters know Ted is best fit to be our next President because he will fight to repeal Obamacare, secure our borders, and appoint a Supreme Court Justice who will protect our Constitution the way late Justice Antonin Scalia did. Marco Rubio could not defeat Donald Trump in his home state and John Kasich has proven he’s the choice of only his home state among a couple dozen others where he has repeatedly lost. John Kasich may have won Ohio but hasn’t won anywhere else yet. Kasich should drop out of the race so the Party can unite behind Ted Cruz. He is the only candidate who can unite the Republican Party and defeat Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to become our next President.”
