At least one GOP presidential candidate is using “fake news” to appeal directly to Hispanic and Asian voters.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has made it a campaign promise to win over Latinos in the upcoming general election.
“We have to fight for America.
We have to stand up for our values,” Cruz said on “Fox and Friends” Tuesday.
“I’m not going to be the guy that tells you what to do.
I’m not the guy to tell you what you should do.”
Cruz, who recently declared he was “absolutely” running for president in 2020, also told The Associated Press that he “will be the most progressive candidate on any issue in the history of the country.”
He added, “The people of Texas have made it clear.”
On Monday, Cruz hosted a rally at the Texas Capitol, which attracted about 1,000 supporters.
The event was one of two Trump campaign events that Cruz has hosted since announcing his candidacy.
On Monday night, Cruz met with about 1 1,500 supporters at the Capitol, according to the Houston Chronicle.
On Wednesday, Cruz told reporters at a press conference, “There’s no doubt about it, we’re going to win.”
On Wednesday evening, Cruz said he would “make it a priority” to bring a Mexican-American senator to the White House in the 2020 race.
“That’s the type of candidate that’s going to get elected,” Cruz told the AP.
