In video obtained exclusively by The Brody File, Ted Cruz tells Iowa Pastors that they need to vote for the candidate who, “defends Biblical values” and that, “now is the time to sound the alarm.” Cruz made the comments at a private pastors event Monday in Cedar Rapids.
The American Renewal Project sponsored the private pastors event, which has been a driving force in presidential politics by mobilizing pastors to run for political office and having presidential candidates speak before hundreds of pastors. Cruz has spoken at a number of events. Marco Rubio did a similar event back in November.
For Cruz, it’s pretty simple. He wins Iowa if evangelical pastors get behind him AND make sure the bulk of their congregations are caucusing on Monday night. The Brody File will be in Iowa this week watching it all unfold.
The Brody File also conducted a one-on-one sit-down interview with Cruz in Des Moines Iowa Monday evening. Video clips moving soon.

Ted Cruz: “Scripture commands us to be salt and light; you can’t be salt if you don’t come into contact with that which you are preserving. You can’t be light if you’re hidden under a bushel. We are to be watchman on the wall, and now is the time to sound the alarm.”
“If each of you simply takes it on as your responsibility that every member of your congregation will show up and caucus and will caucus for someone who defends Biblical values, someone who has a record, not campaign rhetoric, that’s how we keep getting burned. The people who burn us tell us they agree with us. So don’t listen to what they say or I say, don’t listen to what I say, hold us to the test, hold us accountable…if everyone in this room insures that every member of your congregation comes out and votes in the Iowa caucus and votes for our values, we will win one week from today.”
