Ted Cruz Endorses Another Conservative Facing Down an Establishment Primary Challenger

Congressman Tim Huelskamp of Kansas was one of the leaders of the revolt that led to the ouster of John Boehner and the restoration of regular order in the House. In retaliation for this, Boehner and the rest of the establishment found a primary challenger for Huelskamp and got the Chamber of Commerce to fund his challenger’s campaign.

As you might have guessed, Ted Cruz has once again landed on the side of conservatives who are willing to challenge the Establishment. Per a statement from Cruz’s office:

HOUSTON, Texas — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today endorsed Tim Huelskamp for re-election in Kansas’s First Congressional District.


“Tim Huelskamp is a principled conservative who has stood up to the Washington Cartel and fought for Kansans since the day he first arrived in our nation’s capital,” said Sen. Cruz. “On the issues that matter most to conservatives — protecting innocent life, cutting out-of-control spending, and fighting to repeal Obamacare, just to name a few — I have been able to count on Tim’s principled, conservative leadership. That’s why I’m proud to endorse Tim’s campaign for re-election and encourage the men and women of the Sunflower State to send him back to Congress to continue fighting for jobs, freedom, and security for Kansans and all Americans.”


Congressman Tim Huelskamp was elected to his first term as a United States Representative in November 2010 and was subsequently re-elected in 2012 and 2014. In Congress, Huelskamp is a leading conservative advocate for life, marriage, cutting spending, reducing taxes, lowering regulatory burdens, and repealing Obamacare.

Good for Ted Cruz, and good for Tim Huelskamp. Consider donating to Tim to keep one of the best congressmen in Congress.
