South Carolina Congressman Jeff Duncan has endorsed Republican Candidate Ted Cruz for President.
Duncan says he is in Washington and will not be at the Cruz event Tuesday night at the TD Convention Center.
Cruz’s communication director calls the endorsement “a great honor.”
“We have the best Republican Presidential field that we’ve had in a generation. We have a number of candidates who would make an excellent Commander-in-Chief,” said Rep. Duncan. “But I’m reminded of a lesson my grandfather always taught me, that it’s best to judge a man not by his words but rather by his actions. I haven’t been in Washington long, but I have learned that it is a place filled with people who say one thing to get elected and do the opposite once they get there. That is why when deciding who to support, I’m looking for a candidate who has a record that matches their rhetoric and a history of following through on their word. I believe that candidate is Senator Ted Cruz.”
