WASHINGTON, D.C., September 25, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Senator Ted Cruz’s 21-hour epic floor speech to defund ObamaCare may have won him no friends in the media or GOP leadership, but pro-life and conservative leaders are enthusiastic about his efforts.

“Thank you Senator Cruz for giving a voice to all of us!” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, this morning.

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, simply said, “Ted Cruz is the man!”

“I remember about two years ago I was at an event in Houston and someone invited me to a reception for a candidate for Texas U.S. Senator,” Newman continued. “It was some guy I never heard of named Ted Cruz. So, I went, and I thought, ‘Wow this guy is great! But can he win?’ Oh yeah, and Ted Cruz is winning today!”

Other conservatives praised Cruz’s actions, contrasting his passion with that of the president.

“Ted Cruz stayed up all night to fight ObamaCare,” Congressman Steve Stockman, R-TX, quipped on Wednesday morning. “Obama went to bed while Ambassador Stevens [of Libya] was being murdered.”

Others on the other side of the aisle were less receptive.
