Ted Cruz Raises about $45 Million for Campaign

Barb Wire

Ted Cruz is the first candidate to announce fourth quarter fundraising numbers.

Raised a whopping $20 million and now has about $45 million to win the nomination with. Cruz has now received more than 670,000 donations from more than 320,000 donors, with the average donation only $67. Which means his donors are a renewable resource.

We have never seen a principled conservative receive this kind of support. This is providential blessing kind of stuff. Unprecedented even for this cynic. We have a real shot to win this thing. To get a real conservative in the White House for the first time in a generation.

Cruz has assembled a phenomenal campaign, for sure, perhaps one of the best I’ve ever seen. But these kinds of numbers require more than just human striving. One plants, another waters, and then God gives the increase.

There is providential favor/blessing happening here, and I’m not ashamed to point it out. This is what happens when faithfulness meets shrewdness, Boaz. More and more of our brothers and sisters are seeing it, too. The ones who dig in their heels and refuse to see it for whatever reason are not to be criticized by pitied, because they’re missing out on a movement. Let’s save them a seat, for eventually they will arrive.

The ones who were never with us, but were wolves in sheep’s clothing all along, are now exposing themselves for all to see. Make sure to take notes, for the cancers are telling you who they are because they cannot contain themselves. For Sanballat and Tobiah always show up to troll when Nehemiah arrives to rebuild the wall.

But let the trolls troll. Nehemiah stays focused on the task at hand.
