Ted Cruz to Supporters: 'Strap on the Full Armor of God'

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has admonished supporters to “strap on the full armor of God.”

 

Cruz and his campaign began their six-day bus tour of Iowa on Monday, attempting to cover lots of ground and make many stops before the Iowa Caucus on February 1, according to ABCNews.com.

 

Cruz has been widening the margin between himself and the rather crowded field of Republican candidates, but he has warned his campaign and supporters that there is still much to do.

 

"We're winning right now, and as a result, I want to tell everyone, get ready," Cruz said, according to Charisma News."Strap on the full armor of God, get ready for the attacks that are coming. ... We ain't seen nothing yet." 

 

Other Republican candidates have been criticizing Cruz.

 

"Cruz isn't exaggerating about the attacks," PJ Media's Michael Van Der Galien writes. "Senator Marco Rubio and his SuperPAC are doing everything in their power to discredit the senator from Texas, even if they have to spin and blatantly lie to do so. More recently, Rand Paul also jumped on the anti-Cruz bandwagon, accusing him of flip flopping. I'm sure the senator from Kentucky will continue to do so in the weeks leading up to the Iowa caucuses." 

 

Cruz has predicted that he will win the Iowa Caucus and believes the Republican candidate will be decided by March.
