Ted Cruz Endorses 'Duck Dynasty' Star's Nephew for Congress

By    |   Wednesday, 29 Oct 2014 04:15 PM

Conservative Sen. Ted Cruz is endorsing Louisiana Republican congressional candidate Zach Dasher, adding to the candidate's roster of high-wattage support.

"Zach Dasher is a conservative with a backbone to stand up to career politicians in both parties, to help lead the fight to repeal Obamacare, to stop amnesty, to defend our conservative values," Cruz, a Texas Republican, says in a video endorsement of Dasher released Wednesday.

Story continues below video.




The Louisiana businessman is among a field of candidates running against scandal-scarred Republican Rep. Vance McAllister for a spot in the race's December runoff.

McAllister, whose political ambitions took a pounding when he was caught on tape kissing a married staffer, won a special runoff last year to fill the seat
but is struggling for support in his current campaign.

"We're facing enormous threats in this country. The American Dream is under assault, government is out of control. We need a strong conservative who will stand up and lead the fight to stop the radical Obama agenda," Cruz says in the video.

Cruz's endorsement comes a day after two 15-second ads were introduced showing "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson, Dasher's uncle, praising his nephew – whose endorsement of McAllister last year helped push him to victory in the special election.

Dasher also has snagged endorsements from Sarah Palin, the Club for Growth and several other conservative groups, The Hill notes.
