Ted Cruz Courts Homeschoolers in Texas

Republican Cruz taps homeschool niche in battle for Texas

If Republican Presidential hopeful Ted Cruz lands a win in the nominating contest in his home state of Texas on Tuesday, part of the credit will go to support from a small and often overlooked interest group: homeschoolers.

The Senator’s campaign has invested months of effort courting the well-organized network of families who educate their children at home – often to avoid constraints on religion in public school – in the hopes they can keep a big chunk of conservative voters away from his rivals, billionaire Donald Trump and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
