“Well, he wants Senator Cruz to be President,” Billie Rowan said. “We pray for him, Senator Cruz, and we know he is the person that can bring our country back and save it for our children."
Cruz told News On 6 that recent changes in Oklahoma will up his chances for a win this week.
Reporter: “Here in Oklahoma, more Oklahomans have changed their party affiliation to Republican for this election cycle, do you think that will help you Super Tuesday?”
Cruz: “I think it is a tremendously encouraging part of this election. Here in Oklahoma, we've had people come up to us and say I've been a Democrat my whole life, I've voted Democrat, now I'm Republican and we're seeing that all over the country."
