David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United, issued the following statement after Ted Cruz and Steve Stockman won impressive double-digit victories last night in the Texas run-off elections:
“Ted Cruz ran a great race against the party establishment that initially panned his candidacy. The Cruz victory shows that a consistent conservative message centered on our founding principles can win a resounding victory. CUPVF’s poll early last month showing Cruz in the lead was mocked by establishment ‘experts.’ I look forward to working with Ted Cruz in the coming years to grow the conservative movement and enact fiscally responsible reforms.
“Steve Stockman ran a race centered on core conservative values and won. He will come back to Washington and pick up right where he left off. I am comfortable in saying conservatives across the country have an ally in Steve Stockman. CUPVF did a radio ad in support of Steve Stockman’s strong conservative message and I am humbled that the voters of the district listened to our message.”
