One day after her Ted Cruz’s big 2016 announcement, his wife Heidi Cruz took center stage and talked up her husband’s chances to win the GOP presidential nomination.
In the couple’s first joint interview with “Today” show host Matt Lauer Tuesday morning, Heidi Cruz called her husband a “person of conviction,” while adding that he is “someone who tells the truth.”
“Is the public perception of this man inaccurate?” Lauer asked Heidi Cruz, who will be taking a leave of absence from her job at Goldman Sachs.
“Ted Cruz is someone who tells the truth. He knows what he believes,” Heidi Cruz said. “It was one of the things that really drew me to him is this is a person of conviction, and I think the American people want to know what they’re getting.”
The senator’s wife also touched on the 2016 run and its affect on their family, including their two young daughters,
“We have a very strong marriage, an incredibly strong family, and are guided by our faith,” Heidi Cruz said. “I think we are ready to see change in this country and we’re honored to have a voice in that.”
