Mooney endorses Cruz for 2016 presidential run

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Second district Congressman Alex Mooney endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Tuesday in his run for the White House.

Mooney will become Cruz for President’s West Virginia Chairman.

“I am proud to endorse Ted Cruz for President. Senator Cruz’s father, Rafael, visited West Virginia to discuss how he fled communist Cuba to live in freedom in America just as my mother did,” said Mooney in part of a statement. “I have had the pleasure of visiting with Senator Cruz on several occasions to discuss the shared conservative policies for which we are fighting in Congress.”

Cruz responded that he was grateful for Mooney’s support.

“Alex is part of the new generation of leaders who will fight for our conservative values. I deeply appreciate Alex’s support because we need leaders like him to stand up to Washington and fight for real change,” the senator said.
