James Robison Announces Run Against Ted Cruz in 2018
Leonardo Blair , Christian Post Reporter Bruce Jacobson Jr., vice president of televangelist James Robison's Life Outreach International and executive producer of the preacher's syndicated television series "Life Today," formally announced Thursday that he will challenge incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz for his seat in the U.S. Senate in the 2018 GOP primary.
In a campaign video released on YouTube, Jacobson slammed modern day politicians as self-serving individuals who do nothing for the people they are supposed to represent.
"Most politicians today are far more interested in serving themselves and their own agendas than the people who elected them. Blinded by their own political ambition, nothing ever gets done and we have political gridlock," Jacobson said in the video.
