U.S. Senate Candidate Ted Cruz Encourages Conservatives To Get Out And Vote [AUDIO]

At the beginning of the race, Cruz was only polling it at around 3%. But today, many polls are now showing Cruz as the frontrunner in the Senate race. Cruz said he is thrilled with the “tremendous momentum” he’s received and the lead he has in the polls, but to him, there’s only one poll that really matters.

“The only poll that matters is the poll that closes at 7 o’clock tonight. And so our focus for the remaining 12 hours is entirely on turnout. If conservatives show up and vote today, we’ll win this race.”

Cruz said that his campaign has been focused on “conservative grassroots” from the very start. He believes his message of being fed up with establishment incumbent politicians, and calling for politicians to stop spending money they don’t have and return to the constitution has really resonated with the voters. Cruz also talked about how he would approach several major issues if elected to the Senate, such as illegal immigration and Bush-era tax cuts.

Polls opened today at 7:00 AM and will remain open until 7:00 PM this evening.
