In the last week Ted Cruz has been endorsed by NOM and Iowa’s Family Leader. Today he announced the endorsement of James Dobson, founder of both Focus On The Family and the Family Research Council. Via press release:
“Ted Cruz’s record on religious liberty, life, and marriage is second to none in this Republican field,” Dobson said. “I have met with the senator on multiple occasions: he is brilliant, articulate, and informed. Shirley and I have been praying for a leader such as this, and we are confident that Ted Cruz has the moral and spiritual foundations to lead our nation with excellence. Speaking as private individuals, we urge conservatives and people of faith to join us in supporting his race for the presidency.”
Dobson has signed the Manhattan Declaration, which calls on Christians to disobey LGBT rights laws.
