Texas Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore]’s communications director Rick Tyler said Monday that a President Cruz “won’t make deals.”

Monday on MSNBC’s “The Place For Politics” with Tamron Hall, Tyler said, “There’s one conservative left in the race, someone to create jobs under the economic pro-growth plans like Ronald Reagan and that’s Senator Ted Cruz. Nobody else is like it.” (RELATED: Limbaugh: Ted Cruz Is ‘The Closest In Our Lifetimes We Have Ever Been To Ronald Reagan’ [AUDIO])

Hall asked Tyler why Cruz lost the evangelical vote in South Carolina to Donald Trump. “Well, first of all, Senator Cruz’s appeal is broader than the evangelical base,” Tyler said, “but he’s done well in the evangelical base. We lost it narrowly to Donald Trump, but the evangelical base is not a monolith.”

“They care about the social issues, abortion, life, marriage, but they also care about jobs and economy,” Tyler said. “And so we’ve been talking about jobs and economy because our flat tax plan, 10 percent, grows the economy, creates five million new jobs, has the lowest deficit spending than all of the plans.”(RELATED: This Is What The South Carolina Exit Polls Reveal About GOP Voters)

According to Tyler, “Donald Trump’s [plan] blows the deficit out of the water. [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore]’s plan is more of the same. So look, you have someone who wants to make deals, someone who is already making deals, and someone like Ted Cruz has stood up to the Washington establishment and won’t make deals.”

“So that’s the clear choice.”
