Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) staked out a position as a staunch defender of religious liberty and conservative positions on social issues during a Tuesday visit to Iowa.
Cruz did not directly criticize Sen. Rand Paul in his remarks, but did seek to distinguish himself from the Kentucky Republican, who has said the GOP should “agree to disagree” on social issues.
In an interview with the Des Moines Register, Cruz said Republicans “should continue to defend life and that we should continue to defend traditional marriage.”
Asked directly about Paul’s suggestion that the GOP should shift its focus away from social issues, Cruz said only “I’ll let him characterize his views.”
“What I can tell you is my views are that we should continue to defend life and that we should continue to defend traditional marriage,” he added.
