Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has endorsed Raúl Labrador’s bid to become Idaho’s next governor.

“I’ve worked closely with Raúl Labrador over the past few years to advance conservative policies for our country and I can tell you he is one of the most effective, dedicated, and honest men I have known,” said Cruz.  “His fierce commitment to conservative values, his respect for our Constitution, and his pledge to making government accountable to the people will make him a great governor and I’m proud to endorse his candidacy.”

“I’m honored to have Senator Ted Cruz’s support,” said Labrador.  “Ted Cruz and I both know that conservative policies, like freedom, liberty, and personal accountability, will do more to improve people’s lives than any government program. And when we can get government out of the way, people will thrive.  It’s been a privilege to work alongside Senator Cruz in Congress to promote policies that support these ideals, and I’m humbled to have his support in this campaign.”

Labrador, 49, represents Idaho’s First Congressional District.  He and his wife Becca are proud of their five children and one daughter-in-law, and are happily expecting their first grandchild.  More information about Raul Labrador and his campaign is available at www.RaulLabrador.com.
