The Ted Cruz (R-TX) campaign for the White House just released the best ad of the campaign season, and it is sure to win him more than a few new votes.
“When the mainstream media covers illegal immigration they do not see it as an economic issue, but I can tell that for millions of Americans at home watching this it is a very personal economic issue.
I will say, the politics of it would be very, very different if a bunch of lawyers or bankers were crossing the Rio Grande. Or if a bunch of people with journalism degrees were coming over and driving down the wages in the press, then we would see stories about the economic calamity that is befalling our nation…
If I’m elected President we will triple the border patrol, we will build a wall that works, we will secure the border.
I’m Ted Cruz and I approve this message.”
The ad is built from a segment of the GOP debate from early November, where Ted Cruz destroyed Jeb Bush’s Amnesty position — a moment that I noted back in November may well have won Cruz the nomination (before Cruz began his surge in the polls).
