11:00 a.m. New Heights Church, 1500 W. Hawkins Pkwy., Longview
Es un gran honor para nosotros el poder patrocinar este evento y presentarles a ustedes al Reverendo Rafael Cruz, quien es el padre de nuestro Senador Ted Cruz.
Rev. Cruz viaja extensamente por el pais dirigiendose a audiencias de habla Ingles al igual que en Espanol. Es un gran orador, especialmente en el tema de respeto y patriotismo hacia este pais.
Rafael Cruz emigro a los Estados Unidos en 1950 procedente de Cuba, de donde el huyo al regimen comunista. El Rev Cruz salio de Cuba, como muchos otros, huyendo de la opresion, corrupcion y censura – las mismas tendencias que actualmente nuestro Gobierno exhibe.

Both the Republican and Democrat parties will draw stark contrasts next year, each side confident they reflect the views of the majority of Texans. Republicans argue, based on their winning streak, that Texas is a conservative state that will always elect Republicans.
Texas also has the lowest voter turnout in the nation, Democrats say, and the majority of eligible Texas voters are either minorities or liberals. They say getting more Texans to vote is the key to their victory, and Republican policies will help them accomplish that.
The result has been two very different tactics during primary season. The Davis campaign brags about making 100,000 phone calls to potential voters. Battleground Texas, the PAC hoping to turn Texas blue, is training thousands of field organizers and voter registrars.
