U.S. Senator and former GOP Presidential aspirant Ted Cruz was the guest of honor at Family PAC’s annual fundraising cruise on the Lake Michigan and the Chicago River.
Introduced by Family PAC’s Executive Director Paul Caprio as “a man who has made promises and he has kept them,” Cruz gave what seemed to be a stump speech based around three points:
- Truth matters
- Freedom matters
- The Constitution matters
Concerning the events in Charlottesville, the former Presidential candidate declared,
“The Nazis and the Klan and white supremacists are scumbags.
“Every nut bag has the right to protest.
“\Everyone of us has a duty to call out the lies…of the bigotry [they speak].”
The boat was carrying its maximum load–170 people.
More wanted to attend, but they would have exceeded the capacity of the boat.
There sere four from McHenry County: I and my wife, Gene Brown and Allen Brown.
