Cruz Credits ‘Power of the Grassroots’ For Iowa Victory

“They cannot keep the people down!” Ted Cruz told his supporters Monday night after winning the Iowa caucuses, according to Breitbart News.

“Tonight is a testament to the people’s commitment to their yearnings to get back (to) Judeo-Christian values,” the Texas senator said. “From day one, this campaign has been a movement for millions of Americans across the country. When the Washington lobbyists settled for other candidates in the race … nationwide, over 800,000 contributions poured into tedcruz.org as courageous conservatives said, ‘Yes, we can.’”

Noting that his campaign’s average donation has been just $67, Cruz declared: “That is the power of the grassroots. The Republican nominee and president of the United States will not be chosen by the media, will not be chosen by the Washington establishment, will not be chosen by the lobbyists.” Instead, he said, “we the people, the American people,” will decide who succeeds Barack Obama in the White House.

Cruz won the caucuses with 27.6 percent of the vote. Donald Trump, who leads national polls of GOP voters, finished second at 24.3 percent. Next came Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 23.1 percent and retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 9.3 percent. Cruz relied heavily on the support of evangelicals, who made up a majority of the Republicans who attended the caucuses.
