Ted Cruz Dreams of a Jesse Helms Army

I’ll tell you something … the very first political contribution I ever made in my life was to Jesse Helms. When I was a kid, I sent $10 to Jesse Helms, ’cause they were beating up on him, they were coming after him hard and I thought it wasn’t right, and at the time my allowance was 50 cents a week. I am willing to venture a guess that I may have been Jesse Helms’ single largest donor as a percentage of annual income.
We need 100 more like Jesse Helms.
~ Senator Ted Cruz speaking to the conservative Heritage Foundation, invoking the name of ultra-conservative ex-KKK member and late Senator Jesse Helms (R, NC)
