The wife of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says she's confident the South Carolina Republican presidential primary on Feb. 20 will reshape the race.
Heidi Cruz campaigned for her husband in Spartanburg Wednesday at the Summit Pointe Convention Center. Ted Cruz finished first in the Iowa caucuses last week and third in the New Hampshire Republican primary on Tuesday.
"We won Iowa together, with one strong voice of the people coming together, and that's what we need to do in South Carolina," Heidi Cruz said.
Cruz said the campaign remains optimistic going forward.
"I believe this is the most important 10 days in the election," Cruz said. "If we win South Carolina, we will have a game changer in these primaries. We prepared well and laid the foundation."
The campaign has built a strong grassroots organization, with more than 2,000 volunteers nationwide, Cruz said. Donations from more than 800,000 people have poured into the campaign, with an average gift of $67, she said.
Cruz said the campaign will continue to stand on conservative principles.
Bill and Barbara Bates of Goose Creek were among those who attended the rally. Bill Bates said he supported Cruz because he believed he was honest.
"What he (Cruz) says he is going to do, he will do," Bates said.
