Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman congratulates Cruz on ‘resounding victory’ in Utah

ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today congratulating Ted Cruz on his victory in the Utah caucuses.

“Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund congratulates Ted Cruz on his resounding victory today in the Utah caucuses. He is the first candidate to break the 50 percent mark and win a majority of the votes in two contests this cycle. Ted’s momentum continues to build because he’s uniting Tea Party supporters, grassroots conservatives and rank and file Republicans who are ready to take their country back from the Washington establishment.  He’s the candidate that grassroots activists trust to keep his word. We know Ted keeps his promises because he has proven it time and again on the issues that matter most to conservatives. He led the fight to stop Obamacare before the individual mandate kicked in and opposed Congress’ lawless exemption from the law. He helped stop President Obama and the Senate’s ‘Gang of Eight’ from passing amnesty into law. Ted has also proven he is the only Republican candidate who can defeat Donald Trump in states from Alaska to Utah to Maine. It’s time for John Kasich to drop out of the race so the Republican Party can completely unite behind Ted Cruz in order to defeat Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.”
