We’ve picked up the first sign of GOP presidential primary activity around the Rev. Franklin Graham’s Wednesday rally at the state Capitol, which is expected to draw thousands of evangelical voters.
We’re told that Rafael Cruz, father of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, has been given a speaking slot at the event, which will be directed at passage of “religious liberty” legislation before the General Assembly.
Rafael Cruz, himself a preacher, fled Cuba in the late 1950s, lived in Texas, then became a Canadian citizen during his residence there. He returned to the United States with his family in the mid-’70s. He renounced his Canadian citizenship and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2005.
