Republican Presidential candidate Ted Cruz was in the Upstate Saturday afternoon holding his ‘Rally for Religious Liberty’ at Bob Jones University.
Hundreds filled the auditorium in Greenville, starting with a moment of silence for the Paris attacks.
Speaking with 7 News, Cruz says the Obama administration isn’t doing enough to eradicate ISIS.
“Mark my words,” said Cruz, “If we do not act, we will come together, I fear sooner rather than later, mourning another attack like this. That has occured on American homeland with terrorists murdering innocent Americans.”
Cruz says the goal of the rally is to bring attention to recent acts of what he calls ‘Government Sanctioned Religious Persecution’ and recent attacks against Christians.
