Heidi Cruz said on the Indiana campaign trail yesterday that her husband Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) “is an immigrant,” BREITBART reports.
“Ted is an immigrant. He is Hispanic,” Heidi Cruz said of her Texas senator husband, an American citizen who renounced his Canadian citizenship though he was born north of the border. “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.”
UPDATE: Brian Phillips of the Cruz campaign issued a clarification: “Heidi just misspoke. She meant to say ‘Ted is the son of an immigrant’ as she’s said at countless stops before.”
