    HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) -- Long before he was the Senator from Texas or Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, he was a hometown boy carving a path in life. Those who were there for the journey spoke to Eyewitness News. Much has been made about Cruz having been born in Canada. Four years later, he and his family moved to Houston and like many young boys, Ted Cruz could be mischievous and playful. At Clay Road Baptist Church, his first church home in Houston, he was sometimes a prankster. "He would get down and rummage around underneath the seats. In fact...

    During Saturday night's ABC News debate, co-moderator Martha Raddatz, a personal friend of Barack Obama's, asked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) an incredibly dumb gotcha question premised on the idea that Cruz is some kind of war-monger, but only when he wants to be. Cruz was first about the news that, in violation of treaty, North Korea launched fired a long-range rocket Saturday. Cruz gave an impressive and detailed answer about North Korean threat that included legitimate criticism of President Clinton's mishandling of his failed nuclear deal. Raddatz then attacked: ...

    Republican presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson's former top campaign aides think Carson's campaign botched the handling of his post-Iowa caucus trip home to Florida, the fallout of which has pervaded throughout the week. Before the caucuses began, Carson's campaign hastily said that the candidate was heading home "to get fresh clothes," amid speculation that he might be pulling the plug on his campaign. Barry Bennett, Carson's former campaign manager, and Doug Watts, his former communications director, told Business Insider that the candidate was asking for such speculation by making the announcement in the middle of the caucus fury....

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- The New Hampshire primary is less than four days away, but the Cruz campaign is already ramping up volunteer organizing efforts in South Carolina. The campaign on Saturday sent an email asking supporters to join a "strike force" to deploy to South Carolina and aid get-out-the-vote operations, with housing provided in Greenville, S.C. -- the third "Camp Cruz" lodging operation to open, following those based in Des Moines and Manchester. Cruz sees friendlier territory in evangelical-dominated South Carolina than he does here in more moderate New Hampshire, and made it a point to stop in Greenville Tuesday...

    In an effort to draw attention to his Kim Kardashian-style vanity campaign, Ben Carson took his contrived outrage mongering against Cruz to a new level yesterday.  During one of his numerous media appearances over the past three days, which is more actual campaigning than he’s done for the past few months while he took a hiatus to sell books, Carson compared Cruz’s behavior in Iowa to Hillary following the Benghazi tragedy. Enough is enough.  If Carson wants to talk about the depths of deception and dishonesty he should “start looking at the man in the mirror.”I was born and bred...

Let's start from the beginning. Shortly before the Iowa caucus was set to begin, CNN's Jake Tapper reported: ...

    The liberty movement must help elect Senator Ted Cruz the next President of the United States. Many of us in the liberty movement saw the handwriting on the wall some time ago, as far as the Rand Paul campaign was concerned. He came in a distant fifth in Iowa, a state many thought he would win a year ago. His polling looked bleak in the other early states, and he was short on resources. He likely could have gone on, but instead, suspended his campaign Wednesday morning. He'll focus on securing re-election to the Senate, which he should easily accomplish....

The Carson campaign generated headlines that Carson was packing it up after Iowa and heading back to Florida. It read to a lot of people, including the Cruz camp, that Carson was dropping out.No, according to Carson, he just needed clean clothes.But since then, the Carson camp has bludgeoned Ted Cruz’s campaign for daring to rapidly respond to Carson’s news far more rapidly than Carson walked it back....

    Ted Cruz's path to the presidency could be short lived — with statistics revealing his victory in Iowa this week is very similar to the 2008 and 2012 wins of Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, whose presidential campaigns eventually went belly up. That mirrors Santorum, a former senator from Pennsylvania, and Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor, whose voters consisted of 76 and 83 percent evangelical Christians, respectively, according to number-crunching by The Post.

    They both have Iowa caucus wins, yet the only feeling voters seem to manage for these two is apathy. Rick Santorum was unhappy. While other candidates have managed to draw crowds of hundreds and even tens of thousands this cycle, Santorum arrived at Second Street Emporium, a dimly lit restaurant and bar in Webster City, Iowa, on Saturday afternoon, to find that fewer than 50 people had come to see his town hall. Making matters worse, the majority of them weren't Iowa voters, but high school students who'd been bussed in from Cincinnati. They couldn't even vote in the caucus...

"Ted Cruz has changed his positions on ethanol, immigration, H-1B visas," Huckabee said Friday on CNN's "New Day." "He's changed it on whether marriage is a state or a federal issue. He's changed it on whether he's going to be a real champion for religious liberty or whether that's going to be way down the road and it's not important," he added.

Appearing on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" after Fox Business Network's Republican undercard presidential debate, Huckabee said that the Canadian-born Cruz should seek a summary judgment from a court in order to prove that he can serve as commander-in-chief. "I didn't think it was an issue until I started seeing extensive and thoroughly detailed articles from constitutional law professors with strong credibility saying that this is an issue," Huckabee...

    just sayin... What's the point of voting for some spoiler polling at 1-3% -both Santorum and the Huckster in the race for dubious reasons anyway, imho. I got to assume such Republican base voters would prefer someone other than Trump be the nominee... and sure can't see what any real conservative wouldn't want to support Cruz as the most credible alternative. Why are people even considering Santorum or Huckabee at this point... nothing special about either of these retreads, really. With Cruz and Trump polling neck-and-neck in Iowa, conservative GOP voters really ought to think about what an extra...

    Candidates who get their funding from corporate contributors and donors who support other candidates will answer to the people who "throw the dollars at their campaigns," GOP candidate Mike Huckabee said Friday, while accusing fellow candidate Ted Cruz of changing his position on a number of issues. He insisted he wasn't suggesting that Cruz is lacking convictions, but told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" that the Texas Republican has changed his position on a number of issues. Candidates who get their funding from corporate contributors and donors who support other candidates will answer to the people who "throw the dollars at...

    "Why not rally around me? Why not rally around Rick Santorum?" Mike Huckabee said Thursday that it's "rather childish" for Ted Cruz to suggest candidates drop out of the race to ensure the conservative voice isn't splintered. Iowa radio host Simon Conway said Cruz's warning that a split in the conservative vote would allowing a moderate Republican to win the nomination could be directed at Huckabee and Santorum. Huckabee replied, "Well, I mean, that is certainly something he is going to want to say, but my question would be, why not rally around me? Why not rally around Rick Santorum?"...

    Via BuzzFeed, I'm trying to think of another case where a member of a movement as prominent as Huckabee is among politically active evangelicals has turned around and basically accused the rest of the movement of being money-grubbing frauds. Because that's what he's doing here, no? Listen to the clip and tell me I'm wrong. Six weeks ago, this guy was desperately seeking the support of many of the same Christian conservative leaders, most notably Bob Vander Plaats, who endorsed him in 2008. But it hasn't gone his way; a coalition of influential evangelicals decided at a meeting in early...

    "I plan to finish first in Iowa," Huckabee said on Thursday morning. "I know a lot of people have written me off, but they wrote me off eight years ago. They wrote Rick Santorum off four years ago. I'm still counting that we're going to have a big surprise for people on February first." "This is not a surrender. This is an all out declaration," Huckabee charged, adding that he wouldn't be working this hard if he didn't think he can win. "There is no short cut here," he continued, explaining that candidates can send out mailers and buy up...

    Alice Stewart, the former communications director for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's campaign for the GOP presidential nomination, has joined Sen. Ted Cruz's campaign as a senior adviser, Stewart confirmed on Monday. Stewart said she cemented a deal to join the Texas senator in the past week. She will serve as a national spokeswoman and senior adviser. Stewart's movement comes less than a month after she left the Huckabee campaign amid differing views on the direction of his White House bid. Huckabee's campaign, as POLITICO first reported, recently moved all of its resources to Iowa and the former governor and...
