Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has just won over another evangelical leader. This time, the Texas Senator received the endorsement of one of Virginia’s most well-loved African-American pastors – Bishop. E.W. Jackson of Fall Church.
Jackson raved about Cruz’s “authentic faith in Jesus Christ” and has committed to back him up in his quest for the White House.
“It is absolutely essential and urgent that we elect a godly President who reveres our Constitution, honours our Judeo-Christian values and respects the freedom of the American people. After eight years of ‘fundamental transformation,’ we need a leader who will dedicate himself to restoring the fundamentals of America. I urge every American, especially Christians, to elect Ted Cruz as the next President of the United States,” Jackson said in a statement to Conservative HQ.
Jackson strongly believes that Cruz would work well with Christian ministries to help relieve America’s inner cities of poverty and crime.
“Senator Cruz knows that ‘central planning’ by Washington elites will never match the ingenuity and effectiveness of free market capitalism working hand-in-hand with people of faith to restore cultural values and bring prosperity to the most needy people in our country,” he further said.
Jackson stressed that America needs a president who is willing to end the “cycle of poverty, violence and despair in the inner city by marshalling the goodwill and resources of the private sector—churches, businesses, nonprofits and private schools.”
