Ted Cruz just earned one of his biggest endorsements to date and it has everyone on the right talking.
85-year-old Thomas Sowell, a is household name to conservatives. With over 30 books published, you've probably seen his work cited somewhere in your life. To Canadians, readers of the Sun papers would often find his material republished there.
In his latest column titled Tragedy and Choices, Sowell writes the following:
“If, by some miracle, Trump became president, what kind of president would he be? Do we need another self-centered know-it-all in the White House to replace the one we have now?
If the Republicans are to avoid having Donald Trump lead them -- and the country -- to disaster, they are going to have to have the majority of non-Trump supporters get behind some given candidate...we can only make our choices among those actually available, and Senator Cruz is the one who comes to mind when depth and steadfastness come to mind.
As someone who once clerked for a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, he will know how important choosing Justice Scalia's replacement will be. And he has the intellect to understand much more.”
This is a huge deal considering the utmost respect many on the right have for Sowell. When it comes to celebrities, Sowell may not be Kim Kardashian, but when he speaks, people listen.
