At a campaign stop in Indiana on Saturday, Heidi Cruz said her husband, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, “is an immigrant.”
“Ted is an immigrant. He is Hispanic. ” she said, according to the Washington Examiner. “He can unify this party.”
“We have libertarians joining our cause. I have people every day from the Democrat Party telling me that they re-registered to vote for Ted as a Republican. Because they understand what he stands for, and he represents America,” she continued.
