Glenn Beck has thrown his endorsement behind Ted Cruz. The announcement was made on Saturday during a rally at Faith Bible College in Iowa.
“We need a new George Washington,” Beck said at the rally. “Today’s Washington will not be found in the garish light of gold, but rather, in the bold service of a man who stands tirelessly for what he deeply believes — that government should be of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
“I have prayed for the next George Washington,” Beck said of Cruz. “I believe I have found him.”
Beck told those in attendance that we have to get back to what made American “exceptional.”
Glenn Beck pointed to pivotal court cases and his enforcement of the constitution as to why Ted Cruz is the right person for the job.
“It’s not somebody who’s got a lot of strip clubs and casinos. It’s a guy who stands on his principles relentlessly,” Beck said.
Beck also ripped into Donald Trump, demanding that he “apologize” to the conservative movement for his arrogant and self-centered ways.
“The man owes America an apology, and he should ask conservatives in America for forgiveness,” Beck said.
“If Donald Trump wins, it’s going to be a snowball to hell.”
This is the first time Beck has ever made an official endorsement of a presidential candidate. Although he says he has been asked “many times,” Beck has “never trusted anyone enough — until now.”
The Iowa Caucuses will be held on February 1.
