COBB COUNTY, Ga. - Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz arrived at McCollum Field in Cobb County wearing a plaid shirt, cowboy boots, jeans and a leather jacket. Flanked by his wife Heidi and daughters Caroline and Catherine the Texas senator delivered a straight forward conservative message.
He told the crowd huddled in the chilly airplane hangar that help is on the way. He promised a number of first day of office actions if elected president, including repealing Obama Care, shredding the Iranian nuclear deal, opening an investigation into the funding of Planned Parenthood. He also promised to defeat ISIS and seal the borders.
In an earlier media briefing Cruz told reporters with his leadership the country could continue to secure the borders while welcoming legal immigrants.
In an OpinionSavvy poll conducted for FOX 5 News and InsiderAdvantage, 34 percent of Georgia voters supported Donald Trump, Cruz was second with 15.8 percent. Cruz said he was glad Trump is running because he is excited Trump is in the race. He said he hopes the Trump supporters to show up and vote.
Supporters believe Cruz can take some of the Trump votes as the campaign draws closer to the elections.
Jim Jess from East Cobb said he believes Cruz will win in Georgia because grass roots conservatives will take a closer look at Cruz and see his is a fighter.
The chartered jet Cruz was on left McCollum field around 9:50 pm after Cruz spent about two and a half hours at the air field.
Cruz is headed next to Savannah then Mobile Alabama.
