PASADENA, TEXAS - Senator Ted Cruz was in Pasadena Monday night, showing support for several local Republican candidates.
Cruz says he's trying to encourage conservatives to get out and vote, but nowhere did he mention supporting GOP hopeful Donald Trump.
The Harris County Republican Party hosted the event at the headquarters of state representative Gilbert Pena.
Land Commissioner George P. Bush was in attendance as well, even though he's not running for re-election.
It's clear Cruz was the main attraction Monday. He took selfies with supporters and greeted as many supporters as he could.
"In this election, we are fighting to preserve jobs, to preserve our freedom and to keep this country safe. I'm doing everything I can to help defeat Hillary Clinton," Cruz said. "I'm doing everything I can to keep a Republican majority."
But he did not mention supporting Trump, instead stressing the need to repeal every single word of Obamacare and saying how crucial it is to vote in this election because "our whole country hangs in the balance."
