I was in Racine, Wisconsin earlier in the day making calls for GOTV! Tuesday was election day in Wisconsin and volunteers were reminding voters to get out and vote! The polls closed at 8pm. We stopped calling just shy of that.
Since American Serb Hall was only about a 20 minute ride from the office, another friend and I headed over to hear what the Senator had to say.
We pulled right up in front of the place, parked and headed in. I immediately saw faces I recognized, but due to tight security, we were ushered around to another entrance. As we made our way around to another door. I recognized a few faces I hadn’t seen in awhile…some since Illinois and others since South Carolina.
We entered just in time to hear Senator Cruz give his victory speech in Wisconsin’s Republican presidential primary to a tightly packed room of very exuberant and crowded supporters.
If you missed it. Here it is:
Senator Cruz called the victory a “turning point” a “rallying cry” and went on to say “Wisconsin has lit a candle guiding the way forward.”
Cruz added, “Together we will win a majority of the delegates, and together we will beat Hillary Clinton in November.”
No one said it was going to be easy, but this was certainly a turning point that Cruz needed. Thanks Wisconsin. Now on to New York…where things could get even more interesting…or not.
