Tulsa, Oklahoma (August 22, 2018) – U.S. Senator and 2016 Oklahoma Republican presidential primary winner Ted Cruz today announced his endorsement of Kevin Stitt for Governor of Oklahoma.
“Our republic requires an active participation from all of us, and it’s encouraging when solid conservatives step forward to run for office. I’m asking Oklahoma voters to carefully consider the choices before them this election cycle, and to stand with those who have proven themselves to be conservatives of conviction. In the race for Governor in Oklahoma, I am proud to endorse Kevin Stitt, and I urge the voters in Oklahoma to join me by supporting him,” said Ted Cruz.
“It is an honor to earn the support of Ted Cruz, a conservative, principled leader in the Republican party,” Stitt said. “Oklahomans rallied around Sen. Cruz when he courageously led the fight in Washington to repeal and replace ObamaCare. I have admired Cruz’s stalwart stance for free-market principles, for individual liberty, and for the Constitution, and I will lead with these conservative values as governor of Oklahoma.”
On Super Tuesday in 2016, Oklahomans chose Ted Cruz as their Republican nominee for president.
