Sen. Ted Cruz, one of two declared Republican candidates for president, told National Rifle Association members in Nashville that he’s fought the conservative battles, unlike his opponents. “In a Republican primary, every candidate’s going to stand up and say, ‘I oppose Obamacare,'” Cruz said at the NRA’s annual meeting Friday. “The question we ought to ask is, ‘Great, when have you stood up and fought Obamacare?’ “Every candidate is going to say they don’t support amnesty. Alright, great. When have you stood up and fought to stop the president’s illegal and unconstitutional executive action?” Cruz, a first-term senator and a Tea Party favorite, boasted about the Senate’s defeat of several gun restrictions in recent years. He also recalled the recent letter that he and 46 other Republican senators signed and sent to leaders of Iran, which critics said jeopardized a nuclear deal between the nations.
