Senator Cruz Adds to His Staff

From Breitbart:

Ted Cruz at Uninvited II

The Washington Times reports in a move to “beef up” staffing for a possible run for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has hired Senate staffer Brian Phillips as senior adviser to his Jobs, Growth, and Opportunity PAC.

Phillips had been the communications director for Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah.

Mr. Cruz’s PAC was formed in 2013 to support the Texas Republican’s presidential ambitions. By January, the PAC had raised $2.2 million, ending 2014 with just over $130,000 of cash on hand, according to Open Secrets, which traces federal campaign contributions.

Mr. Cruz’s PAC can raise unlimited funds for him, but can’t legally coordinate with him or his campaign once he officially announces a bid for the White House.

Cruz’s previous hires include Rick Tyler, a former adviser to Newt Gingrich, as well as his own former chief of staff, Chip Roy, to run his political campaign.


I’d say that’s a very good sign, eh? Go Ted!

    I heard that Hillary is hiring Brian Williams.

    Look behind the curtains. These guys would NOT have these PAC’s if they could not tap into them after their announcements. If they can’t take THIS path, they take THAT, or another path. Just ask Obama, the Clintoons, and various other scumbags.

      Oh heck yeah, Clyde. Why do you think Bill Clinton said all those donations to their foundation was a good thing? I’m just glad to see Cruz getting his ducks in a row and I hope he comes out swinging.
