Ted Cruz confident on final day of campaigning before NH primary


MANCHESTER - Despite the winter storm outside, Ted Cruz supporters packed inside the American Legion Henry J. Sweeney Post in Manchester.

The Senator from Texas says it’s all about having the same kind of turnout Tuesday at the polls.

Cruz kept with the theme of his campaign, calling himself courageous, conservative, and consistent.

Reflecting on Saturday’s debate, Cruz says he was disappointed he didn’t get to answer the question “What does it mean to be a conservative?”

“That our rights do not come from government, they don’t come from kings or queens, they come rather as the declaration put it, we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,” Cruz said.

Cruz came out on top in Iowa, he says despite his choice to campaign against the ethanol mandate.

“That’s almost like coming to New Hampshire and campaigning against the New England Patriots - which to be clear - I’m not doing. I’m not that crazy,” Cruz said.

Most recently polling in second and third place in New Hampshire, Cruz is confident in his campaign. He told voters to look at the records of the candidates when checking off a name on their ballots Tuesday.

“If you want a president who will repeal every word of Obamacare, simply ask the question, when have you stood up and led the fight to stop Obamacare?” Cruz said.

The Cruz Campaign will be in Hollis tomorrow. NH1 News will be there and bring you all of the Primary results as they come in.
