I first met Cruz at CPAC 2011 and have followed his campaign as it has progressed from only getting 2% in the first polls. It’s very similar to how Marco Rubio’s first poll was just 3%, leading those of us who supported him from the beginning to call ourselves the “Three Percenters.” Cruz acknowledged the parallels and gives a lot of credit to Marco Rubio: “he blazed the path that we followed.”
He also attributes his victory to the support he received from conservative activists and bloggers around the country:
Social media was a very powerful tool, bloggers were incredibly helpful. Sarah, your support, over a year ago, I mean, you were a two percenter in this race, and I am grateful for it because it helped spread the message, spread the word…
…this is the way elections are supposed to be decided. It’s not supposed to be a handful of lobbyists in a back room, writing some checks and deciding this will be the next Senator. It’s supposed to be “We The People.”
I have to admit, I was thrilled that Cruz called me “a relentless voice for liberty.” Might have to put that on my business cards. I know I join a lot of you here in saying that I cannot wait to be able to officially call him “Senator Ted Cruz!”
Mike Lee spoke to Mark Levin Thursday evening and didn’t hold back when addressing John Boehner’s attack on Ted Cruz. Keep in mind, Mike Lee is basically the most mild-mannered person in the entire senate, and even he isn’t tolerating this nonsense anymore.

And Carly Fiorina’s new position as the Vice Presidential half of the Cruz ticket did just that. The liberal media clearly can’t deal with this new addition to the Cruz team. Yes, it’s a female, but it’s a | Read More »
