Tea Party Conservatives Choose Cruz
March 14, 2016
For the last several months, Ohio Conservatives United and affiliated groups in Florida and Illinois have been conducting surveys of members of Tea Party, 9/12, and other liberty groups. In each state, their theory was simple:
“If Ohio conservatives unite behind one candidate in the primary election, we will win.
“If we split and fragment our vote across the entire field, the establishment Republican will win.”
All three groups have completed their process and endorsed the clear winner among Tea Party conservatives: Ted Cruz.
Update (March 15th, 2016):
