Victory Chairman Christi Craddick hosted a fundraiser and panel discussion in West Texas at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center on Thursday, October 23rd with Texas’ own U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, Republican Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and conservative business pioneer Carly Fiorina. The engaging discussion covered a variety of topics including energy policy, national security, conservative innovation and the upcoming November 4th election.

Cruz, Jindal and Fiorina all agreed that Republican Greg Abbott will be the next governor of Texas and Republicans will take the majority in the U.S. Senate. Fiorina added that Republicans, “will have a unique opportunity to show that our conservative principles are what lift people up.” When talking about the future of the Republican Party, Jindal encouraged the Party to not just be anti-Obama but to also show consistent governance with conservative principles.

Senator Cruz also touched on his predictions for the 2016 election when stating, “I am convinced, come January 2017, with a Republican president in the White House, we’re going to sign legislation repealing every single word of ‘Obamacare’”. To put it simply, Cruz said, “We vote the Democrats out of power and put people with common sense in.”

The event was a fundraiser for the Republican Party of Texas’ Victory 2014 effort to help Republican candidates across the state. “Chairman Craddick was an extremely gracious host to all of us who attended this star studded event in the Permian-Basin. She has been an incredible Victory Chair and is determined to Keep Texas Red. As Victory Chairman, Christi has raised enough to keep our Victory offices across the state open in 2015. We have never been able to do this before and it will be a huge step forward as we prepare for the 2016 elections, “ said Chairman Steve Munisteri.

All of the proceeds of this event will stay in Texas and will go directly to efforts to defend Texas from the millions of out-of-state money funneling into Texas from Obama’s “Turn Texas Blue” political hacks.
