Ted Cruz Woos Orthodox Jews

posted on April 16, 2015

At POLITICO, Katie Glueck reports that Ted Cruz has struck a profitable relationship with Orthodox Jews, who support his position on many political issues, including his vigorous opposition to negotiations with Iran. Cruz’s strong support for Israel and his conservative social policies make him the ideal candidate for Orthodox voters. “I share a great many values with the Jewish community and the Orthodox community,” Cruz said in an interview. “Chief among them is a passionate dedication to strengthening our friendship and alliance with the nation of Israel.”
