SAINT CHARLES, MO -- U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas won a presidential preference straw poll conducted by the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) this weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Missouri.
Cruz topped a long list of potential Republican candidates with 38 percent of the first place votes, just edging Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, who finished second with 35 percent.
Recently, several members of the Liberty Republican wing of the GOP in Maine quit the state party and changed their voter registration to unenrolled. While we respect their individual decisions of conscience, we do not agree with their decision to leave the party.
Matt Nye, Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) was interviewed by Ben Swann recently about the state of the media, the Republican Party, and why the RLC is supporting Ben's Truth in Media Project.
The Republican Liberty Caucus is a 527 voluntary grassroots membership organization dedicated to working within the Republican Party to advance the principles of individual rights, limited government and free markets. Founded in 1991, it is the oldest continuously-operating organization within the Liberty Republican movement.
