Cruz urges voters to "not give into evil" as Indiana primary approaches

“I believe in the people of the Hoosier state. I believe that the men and women gathered here and the goodness of the American people, that we will not give into evil but we will remember who we are and we will stand for our values,” Cruz said at a rally in La Porte, Indiana.

Indiana votes Tuesday and Cruz has called the state “pivotal” to his campaign. A recent NBC-WSJ Marist poll shows him trailing Trump by 15 points in Indiana. While the Texas senator has refused to call Indiana a must-win state, he repeatedly emphasized the state’s importance at rallies Sunday.

“This entire political process has conspired to put the state of Indiana in the position to stand up and speak the voice of sanity,” Cruz said.
