(KYW-TV) Heidi Cruz, the wife of presidential candidate Ted Cruz, championed his campaign and defended her husband against criticism for the way he is amassing convention delegates despite not winning the popular vote in some states.
Cruz, speaking with Dom Giordano on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, said Ted is doing what it takes to succeed in a presidential campaign.
"The rules that under-gird the basic outline of the electoral process have been in place since 1860. Within that, we have a popular vote that elects delegates that go to a convention and as the field has narrowed, we’ve been uniting the Republican party. We’ve been doing it by meeting voters, by going to the state, by hosting numerous events a day, by filling our offices with phone callers and block walkers, that’s how you win elections. You win elections by doing that, not just by flying in on a private jet and hosting a big rally and flying right out. I think our campaign has built the groundwork to touch real voters and their talking to each other and that’s why Ted’s winning."
