HH: Senator Cruz joins us. Senator Cruz, I must say I was thinking of you and Heidi today when I was listening to all of the eulogies about Nancy and Ron Reagan. Your wife and your two beautiful daughters were there in the front row last night. It’s got to be stressful on them.
TC: You know, it is, but they’ve actually been, they’ve been phenomenal. Heidi has been on the road campaigning non-stop. I mean, she is truly a road warrior. She’s in Missouri right now campaigning. I’m in Chicago campaigning. And the girls have been, they’ve had fun with it. They go on the road with us. They get out and shake hands and wave, and it’s stressful on them, but at the same time, it has been an amazing journey, and really, the most incredible thing is we’ve gotten the opportunity to meet and get to know just unbelievable people across the country who are really, really passionate to turn the country around.
HH: Now Senator Ted Cruz, www.tedcruz.org if people want to support you, I watched in pretty great amazement last night, two hours up close and personal of substantive discussion.

I understand that anger. It’s well justified. But you do not respond to the corruption of Washington by supporting an individual like Donald Trump who has been enmeshed in that corruption for 40 years. And it became evident. You know, several times, I asked Donald, name one time when you have ever stood up to Washington, where you’ve ever taken on the lobbyists on anything. And he couldn’t point to a single instance. Name one government program you would eliminate. He couldn’t point to a single program. And I think that’s why we need our support continuing to grow and grow and grow, because when people look to, okay, who has a record of actually standing up to the corruption in Washington, standing with the hard-working taxpayer, I’m the one candidate with a proven record of doing that over and over again, which explains why there have been so many slings and arrows tossed our direction, because when you take on Washington, Washington doesn’t like it.
