Freedom Caucus Leader Raul Labrador Endorses Ted Cruz

Idaho Representative and Freedom Caucus leader Raul Labrador has endorsed Senator Ted Cruz for President, National Review reported yesterday. Labrador joins fellow Freedom Caucus members Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), who previously indicated support for the Senator from Texas.

Labrador, long viewed as an ally of the Liberty Movement, earned support from liberty icon Rep. Justin Amash for house speaker in 2013 and until recently served as Western State Chair for Sen. Rand Paul’s presidential campaign.

Cruz, the only candidate to contest Paul for the liberty vote over the course of the 2016 cycle, has drawn strong support from the movement in the wake of the latter’s departure from the race. The addition of Labrador could allow him to make an even stronger play for the libertarian bloc.
