CPAC 2016 – Senator Ted Cruz Rocks the Washington, D.C.

Written by Onan Coca

Of the four presidential candidates who made an appearance at the recent presidential debate in Detroit, Michigan, three of them have decided to speak to the conservatives meeting this weekend in Washington, D.C.
Governor John Kasich (R-OH) and Senator [score]Ted Cruz[/score] (R-TX) both spoke on Friday and Senator [score]Marco Rubio[/score] (R-FL) and Donald Trump were schedule to appear on Saturday.
Sadly, Donald Trump decided to back out late Friday afternoon. Thankfully the other three candidates have decided to honor their commitments and show up to speak to the gathered grassroots activists.
On Friday, the one speaker who stole the show was Senator Cruz.
Cruz brought down the house in D.C. and sparked a raucous crowd during his energetic and passionate speech.
While a handful of Donald Trump supporters tried to make themselves heard, the overwhelming majority of Constitutional Conservatives made themselves far louder as they cheered on the conservative Senator from Texas.
