Over 200 Leading Republican Women Endorse Cruz for Senate
By Jon McClellan
The Ted Cruz campaign has exciting news to announce today. Over 200 leading Republican women across Texas have endorsed the campaign, continuing its remarkable momentum in the U.S. Senate race. Among the individual women leaders supporting Cruz are numerous current and former statewide officers of the Texas Federation of Republican Women, former Republican Womens’ club presidents, and leading Republican women activists.
Cruz has been publicly endorsed by markedly more Republican women leaders than has any other campaign. Indeed, Cruz has been endorsed by over half of the current statewide leadership of TFRW that is permitted to and intends to endorse in Republican primaries.

“I am honored and humbled to have the support of Republican Women all across Texas,” Cruz said. “Nothing in Texas politics is more unstoppable than the passion and commitment of Republican Women.”
Diane Fulton, the former President of the Austin Republican Women’s Club, said that there is a stark contrast among the candidates running for Senate in Texas. “This election isn’t about just electing any Republican. These are serious times, and we need a Senator who will lead the fight for Texas,” Fulton said.
“The grassroots are with Ted, period. Simply put – Ted Cruz is a conservative we can trust. He doesn’t just talk conservative, he has walked the walk,” TFRW District Director Sue De Villez stated. “Ted Cruz has a proven track record of standing up and leading the fight to defeat the Obama agenda.”
In addition to over 200 Republican women leaders, conservative leaders all across Texas and the nation have coalesced around the Cruz campaign, including: Cathie Adams, Ernie Angelo, David Barton, George P. Bush, Tim Lambert, Kelly Shackelford, George Strake, Peggy Venable, FreedomWorks PAC, Club for Growth PAC, the Senate Conservative’s Fund, Sen. Jim DeMint, Sen. Mike Lee, Sen. Rand Paul, and Sen. Pat Toomey.
(Please note: These are individual endorsements. The Texas Federation of Republican Women does not and cannot endorse in a Republican primary, and current TFRW club Presidents and Campaign Activities Chairs are not permitted to endorse.)
