Newboys’ Michael Tait endorses Ted Cruz, claims he has ‘solid principles’

The frontman of Christian rock band Newsboys, Michael Tait, has said that he is endorsing Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for president. Tait’s endorsement came during a talk with Fox News’ Todd Starnes.
“I saw him, his family, the way he talked to people in person. I saw his drive, his hunger for solid principles, solid ideas going forward in our country that, even as an African-American, if you want to get really technical about it, I support 100 percent,” Tait said.

Tait said he has been following Cruz “for a while,” adding that Cruz’s message is one he’s “used to” and one he “believes in.” Tait also seemingly took an indirect shot at Republican candidate Donald Trump by saying that he believes it is Cruz’s leadership that is “going to make this country great again.”

“People of faith should vote for a man they believe in,” Tait said.
“A man they feel can do the job, not falter, not say one thing before the election and do another whole thing after the election, a man that stands his ground, keeps his word, protects our freedom — that’s who you should vote for.”
The Newsboys’ God’s Not Dead hit song was an anthem for the popular Christian film which has spawned a sequel set for later this year.
Tait spoke with Dispatch Radio promoting Winter Jam in an interview which is considered one of the best in the show’s history – check it out HERE
