Politico: Cruz emerges as Iowa’s new favorite!

I don’t think there is any question that Iowa would be Ted Cruz’s to lose at this point in time. Not only does the most accurate and the most reliable polling entity (Monmouth University) have Cruz in the lead, surpassing Trump and Carson by as much as five points, but we have witnessed a whole slew of very prominent Iowan conservative figures in just the last week proudly endorse Cruz.

It actually started a few months ago with the support of pro-family talk radio host ​​Steve Deace, who put his prominent stamp of approval on Cruz in August.

Then, just a couple of weeks ago, Iowa’s most influential conservative Congressman Steve King made his rare endorsement.

Now, probably the most influential and prominent of all the pro-family leaders in Iowa Bob Vander Plaats gave his full-throated endorsement of the most conservative candidate in this race.

Vander Plaats

Vander Plaats was instrumental in helping both Huckabee win the Caucus in 2008 and Santorum’s late win in 2012. This guy is a true king maker in every sense and his sway with evangelicals in the heartland cannot be overstated!

In addition to Vander Plaats’ powerful endorsement, the National Organization of Marriage recently just endorsed Cruz.

If he does lose Iowa in less than 60 days, it certainly won’t be because he didn’t have the backing of powerhouse political players in the first Caucus state in the nation!

In addition to the articles below, I’ve pasted an interview with Vander Plaats on the Laura Ingraham show where he details his reasons for supporting our constitutional conservative warrior. Read and listen below!

On a side note, for all the O.C. Cruz Crew, I want to inform you that we will likely be having a very huge announcement to make in the next few days regarding a Cruz related event that will likely take place next week.

That is all I am authorized to say at this point, but I encourage you to stay tuned and keep your eyes and ears open to any updates that I and others may give you through email and on the Orange County Tea Party Blog site!

There is also an important debate night watching party taking place on Tuesday night. That event I am able to tell you about and I will update you on that sometime this weekend. Stay tuned! Ted Cruz for President!

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – Deuteronomy 4:29-31 (NIV)

"But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in later days you will return to the Lord your God and obey him. For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your forefathers, which he confirmed to them by oath." 3-7-16

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Donald Trump from”Crippled America” (Posted on 3-7-16)

"But then I realized I couldn't stand what I was seeing. I couldn't believe the hypocrisy and inaction of Washington 'insiders' who wanted to keep the gravy train flowing in their direction, while outside the beltway, Americans were suffering and they were rightfully angry about the lack of leadership and creativity. . . . It begins by creating millions of good jobs for hardworking Americans."
