SC Dems Statement on Ted Cruz Campaigning in South Carolina Today
Columbia, SC—South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jaime Harrison issued the following statement in response to U.S. Senator and Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz campaigning in South Carolina today.
Once again, Senator Cruz is campaigning using the same hateful rhetoric against undocumented immigrants and Muslim Americans that voters have come to expect from the Republican Party. While Senator Cruz would like for South Carolinians to believe he would keep our country safe, the facts are just the opposite. From leading the effort to shut down the Department of Homeland Security to voting against legislation that could prevent suspected terrorists from purchasing guns, Ted Cruz cannot be trusted to be our next Commander in Chief.”
