Cruz: 'We Are the Only Campaign that Can Beat Donald Trump'
Ted Cruz urged conservatives to “unite behind our campaign," speaking as he and Marco Rubio were locked for second place in tonight's South Carolina GOP primary.
“If you are a conservative, this is where you belong, because only one strong conservative is in a position to win this race,” the Texas senator said.
He reminded the audience, “We are the only campaign that has beaten and can beat Donald Trump.”
“That’s why Donald relentlessly attacks us, and ignores all the other candidates,” he continued.
“Now, I congratulate Donald on his victory tonight. But I will say this to the people of America.
If you don’t believe that Donald Trump is the best candidate to run against Hillary Clinton in November, if you believe we need a strong contrast with the Democrats… then we welcome you aboard our team.”
