Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to lead T.W. Shannon Liberty Rally
Cruz Makes First Senate Endorsement of Shannon
LAWTON, OK (April 16, 2014) — Republican U.S. Senate candidate T.W. Shannon announced today that U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has endorsed his campaign. Sen. Cruz will join Gov. Sarah Palin and U.S. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, for a Liberty Rally next Thursday, April 24 in Tulsa. The endorsement is Sen. Cruz’s first endorsement in an open seat in the 2014 cycle.
“T.W. Shannon is a strong Constitutional conservative who will fight for individual liberty and help turn our country around,” Sen. Cruz said. “T.W. embodies the American dream. I’m proud to offer T.W. my enthusiastic endorsement because not only will he vote the right way, but he’ll stand up and fight with us in the Senate to stop President Obama’s assault on our liberties and defend America’s founding principles.”
“One of the things I keep hearing as I travel the state is that my fellow Oklahomans feel like their personal freedoms are under assault,” said T.W. Shannon. “Whether it’s the government mandating health insurance we don’t want, or invading our privacy, or forcing people to violate their conscience by providing abortion drugs—Oklahomans now fear their own government is taking away their liberty.
“But it doesn’t have to be this way. Thomas Jefferson said when the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. If conservatives here in Oklahoma and across America will unite, we can protect our God- given liberty, and take back this country.
“We need to send a message to Washington, D.C., and make our voices heard. I hope my fellow patriots from here in Tulsa and all across the state will join me with Gov. Palin, Sen. Cruz and Sen. Lee as we rally for Liberty here in the heartland.”
The Liberty Rally featuring Gov. Sarah Palin, Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee will take place Thursday, April 24 at 6:00pm at the Green Country Event Center located at 12000 E. 31st St. in Tulsa. The Rally is free and open to the public.
