Cruz revs up patrons at Kountze stop

By Dannie Oliveaux

KOUNTZE — Patrons, many standing, packed into Mama Jack’s Restaurant to hear Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz as his campaign tour came to Hardin County on July 6.

The incumbent Cruz is being challenged by Beto O’Rourk, a Democratic Congressman from El Paso, in the November general election.

Cruz, who was dressed in jeans, white shirt and boots, arrived at the restaurant to a loud ovation from the standing- room only crowd with included men and women of all ages. “I was reminded this week what Ronald Regan said a long time ago,” Cruz said. “He said; ‘For Republicans, every day is the Fourth of July. And for Democrats, every day is April 15th.’”
