WEST MONROE, Louisiana, January 15, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Texas Senator Ted Cruz “fits the bill” to be president, according to Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson.
In an endorsement video posted yesterday, Robertson said, “My qualifications for president of the United States are rather narrow: Is he or she Godly, does he or she love us, can he or she do the job, and finally would they kill a duck and put him in a pot and make him a good duck gumbo?”
“I've looked at the candidates. Ted Cruz is my man. He fits the bill,” concluded Robertson.
The endorsement came after Cruz, a top candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, went hunting with Robertson and had dinner at their home.
“I am thrilled to have Phil's support for our campaign,” Cruz said. “The Robertsons are a strong family of great Christian faith and conservative values.”
“Phil's story of starting off with something small and working hard to achieve the American dream is inspiring. Much like my parents, and many other Americans, who started a small business and worked hard to provide for our family.”
The endorsement by the popular social conservative caused Hot Air's Allahpundit to post the headline, “Video: Phil Robertson locks down the south for Ted Cruz.”
