Texas Senator Ted Cruz joined by his wife Heidi, mother Eleanor and Carly Fiorina at a “Women For Cruz” campaign event in Madison on Wednesday – the same day that the latest Marquette University Law School Poll showed Cruz leading Donald Trump and Ohio Governor John Kasich on the Republican side of Wisconsin’s Presidential Primary.
“We’re here because we love our families. We’re here because we love our country, and because America right now is in crisis,” Cruz said. “This event is a celebration of strong women.”
Cruz accused Democrats of trying to pigeonhole women, who he referred to as “the majority” of the United States and “not a special interest group.”
Heidi Cruz told several hundred people at the Madison Sheraton that she and her husband share a strong Christian faith. Eleanor Cruz provided a glimpse of the candidate as a youngster, recalling how she used to drive her son to twice a week study groups on the U.S. Constitution.
