    “He is our best chance to preserve American exceptionalism for the next generation”HOUSTON, Texas – The Cruz Campaign today released a video featuring Iowa conservative activist Steve Deace explaining why Ted Cruz is the candidate that conservatives should unify behind, and how he has what it takes to win the 2016 GOP primary and general elections.Steve Deace: Ted Cruz is our best chance to preserve American exceptionalism for the next generation (Video)“Ted Cruz has proven that we can build the organization and raise the money that it takes to actually win national elections without compromising our principles at all,” Deace...

    Trent Lott wasn’t always this way. He was once a conservative champion, who came to Washington to change the ruling-class narrative. But now he’s a profile in what Washington does to you if you stay too long — unless you have Winston Churchill-like courage of conviction, and few mere mortals do. Mr. Lott was originally part of a group that included former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Vin Webber, who were dubbed the “Young Turks.” They were among the chief lieutenants of the Reagan Revolution back in the day. Best known for fighting the Fraternal Order of Establishment Republicans....

    For the past several election cycles, conservatives have lamented their lack of inspiring options. This time is different, though. Now there may be too many good options to choose from. That’s all the more reason for me to follow through on what I’ve been telling my audience ever since Mitt Romney lost the 2012 election. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. The GOP establishment settles on its corporatist shill early while conservatives peel off in numerous directions, mainly because there’s not a viable full-spectrum conservative running. And so we splinter among the candidates whose priorities match our own....

    --- First, Mr. Cruz is the one candidate in this primary who has never looked the other way when the GOP establishment sold out conservatives or betrayed the trust of the American people. ... Second for Mr. Cruz is electability. Starting with the primary, conservatives can only coalesce to defeat the GOP establishment if there is a viable, full-spectrum conservative in the race. And not only can no one question Mr. Cruz’s conservative credentials, but he has raised the most hard money of any GOP presidential candidate (and an astonishing $50 million overall). He’s already drawing massive crowds and building...

In a statement share with POLITICO and echoed on his show, Deace said that Cruz has demonstrated he can win the nomination through his fundraising haul and his campaign infrastructure, while remaining true to conservative values. “Ted Cruz presents exactly what we’ve been waiting for, an end to the Washington Cartel’s false choice between our principles and electability,” the statement read. “No one can question Ted’s courage of conviction and his commitment to our principles.

"The candidate we are supporting is Texas Senator Ted Cruz…He's what we've been waiting for," said the conservative host. The announcement, which Deace made on his radio program on Wednesday afternoon, came two days ahead of the candidate's visit to the Iowa State Fair and about six months ahead of the Iowa Republican Caucus. He also tweeted about the endorsement after making the announcement on the air. The syndicated radio host has promised to fully put his weight behind Cruz's candidacy on his...

    Senator Ted Cruz just picked up a huge endorsement in Iowa. Iowa-based talk radio host Steve Deace, who has been a fixture for conservatives in the Hawkeye State, spoke highly of Cruz’s record and his belief that only the Texan can clean up Washington.

No one can question Ted’s courage of conviction and his commitment to our principles.” Deace insisted that Cruz has the chops “to actually defeat the...

    Nobody screws up a one-car funeral, or kills the goose that lays the golden egg, quite like the Republican Party establishment. Such is the plight of a political party lead by people who don’t share the same basic values as its base. This puts the GOP in a constant state of inner turmoil. For example, just six months after a historic midterm election victory only 23 percent of Republicans believe their party’s leaders have kept their campaign promises, according to a new Pew Research poll. At the epicenter of this dysfunctional family lies my native state of Iowa: Home to...

    Iowa radio host Steve Deace, who supported recently-announced presidential candidate Mike Huckabee (R) during his 2008 White House bid, expressed grave disappointment over the fact that the former Arkansas governor supports certain entitlement programs, which Huckabee outlined in his May 4 candidacy announcement. Deace's rejection of Huckabee comes in the wake of his praise and early support for one of Huckabee's challengers for the GOP nomination, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). During the May 6 episode of the Steve Deace Show, Deace played former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's presidential candidacy announcement speech but frequently interrupted it so that he and his...

    “Likely fellow 2016 GOP presidential rival Marco Rubio has taken some heat from the conservative grassroots for being the face of “comprehensive immigration reform” (or what many conservatives call amnesty). Now it appears Rand Paul is going to the left of Rubio on this issue if you read his column in The Washington Times,” says Steve Deace. The entire premise of Rand’s piece is what’s best and fair for the illegal aliens, and never discusses what’s best and fair for the people here legally, paying taxes, and paying the freight for those who aren’t.

    The main event is finally here. The race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination is now underway. This is shaping up to be the strongest field of Republican challengers in recent memory. After the GOP’s strong showing in the 2014 midterms, the list of those who sense an opportunity, and want to seize it to run in 2016, is both long and distinguished. While the Democrat presidential primary is essentially Hillary Clinton (their 2008 also-ran) or bust, the Republicans have a deep bench of potential standard-bearers... Though it may seem early to some to already be posting odds on the...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is expected to receive a "hero's welcome" when he travels to Iowa and New Hampshire in the coming months after he again stood up against the GOP establishment on the vote to raise the debt ceiling without any reductions in spending. Conservative activists, according to the The Hill, are cheering Cruz for forcing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and others to vote to advance the legislation. On March 18, Cruz will keynote a Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators rally. On April 12, Cruz will attend the New Hampshire Freedom Summit, which is sponsored by Americans For Prosperity....

    Nationally syndicated talk-radio host Steve Deace, an Iowa native who has built a national brand as an in-house critic of the conservative movement, says Democrats are out-gunning Republicans on strategy and message. “Say what you will, the Democrats offer solutions,” Deace said. Meanwhile, the GOP issues statements that come across like sponsors’ patches on NASCAR drivers or scout badges, he said. Deace, 40, spoke for about two hours to a crowd of 80 people at the Santa Maria Winery in Carroll last week, an event organized by the Carroll Area Tea Party. His central theme: Republicans shouldn’t get mad with...

    Iowa’s talk-radio hosts have been particularly brutal. Steve Deace, an influential Christian conservative, has warned Rubio not to even show up, and has often taunted him during broadcasts. “Zip, zilch, nada — he’s got no support, he would be dead on arrival,” Deace tells me. “He may end up running for president, but he can’t win here.” Rubio’s latest Iowa headache is Sam Clovis, a charismatic, suspenders-wearing Republican running for U.S. Senate. On the campaign trail, Clovis frequently uses Rubio as a target. Rather than hit President Obama, the usual rhetorical punching bag, he slams Rubio on immigration to score...

    There has been a great deal of discussion over the last week concerning the remarks made by Governor Palin in answer to a question from Josh Painter, regarding the possibility of a new party to supplant the GOP. As Steve Deace covers in his own cost/benefit analysis of the idea, there are a few practical considerations to leaving the Republican Party that make for a gargantuan series of problems, including effectively surrendering the whole governance of the country to the Democrats in the short run. As Deace also explains quite effectively, if we don’t change the direction of the country,...

You’ve raised her to be the best wife and mother she can be. She is beautiful, wise and loves God with all of her heart. For some reason, however, you are afraid that she will not be able to capture the heart of a truly noble man. Having a successful courtship that leads to an early marriage is important to you because you don’t want to...

    The harassment scandal highlights Cain's rift with Iowa's most dangerous conservative talker. Herman Cain has messed with the wrong Iowan. One strand of the multifaceted scandal unfolding around the Republican presidential candidate this week has been the charge that Cain treated female staffers of Des Moines-based radio host Steve Deace in a manner Deace found "awkward and inappropriate." While Deace has refused to describe the interaction that prompted that characterization, he has also spent the week relentlessly pounding Cain on his nightly talk show -- and taking to task the conservatives who, at least at first, largely defended the former...

    On Friday morning, our very own Rebekah Maxwell got an opportunity to do something few in the media have had the chance to do at one of Rick Perry’s presidential campaign stops — ask him a serious question about his own record. Given Perry’s answer, it calls into question either Perry’s truthfulness or whether or not he even knows his own record. In the exchange, Maxwell asks Perry about his support for the controversial 2008 bank bailout known as the TARP, a hugely unpopular move that eventually launched what is now known as the Tea Party movement. Perry responds by...

    What is better? To ban some abortions or ban none because just banning some is incrementalism and not prolife enough? That is a debate that is happening at the Iowa Statehouse and on the air waves. Eric wrote on Tuesday about the battle for life at the Iowa Statehouse especially surrounding the first prolife bill this session on the docket – House File 5. This bill in effect bans all abortions beyond 20 weeks with certain exceptions. It would keep Dr. Leroy Carhart from setting up shop in Council Bluffs, IA. It is a good bill, and it is a...
