Gov. Brown Declares Sen. Cruz Unfit for the White House

Governor Jerry Brown of California, himself a three-time candidate for president, said Sunday, March 22, 2015, that Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was “absolutely unfit to be running for office.” Senator Cruz announced his intention to run for president March 23, 2015. Governor Brown was especially concerned about Senator Cruz’s opinions on climate change. “That man betokens such a level of ignorance and a direct falsification of existing scientific data. It’s shocking, and I think that man has rendered himself absolutely unfit to be running for office.”

Ninety percent of scientists are convinced that climate change is real, and that humanity’s activities influence it. Senator Cruz disagrees, which many people find disturbing, given that he is currently chairman of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Science and Space.

Governor Brown said both Republican and Democratic candidates will need to discuss climate change and how they plan to deal with it stated concerned voters like Halpern. California has suffered droughts because of climate change, so it’s a subject Brown takes seriously. FEMA recently announced that they will only approve disaster preparedness funds for states that have hazard mitigation plans that address climate change.

Politicfact has also cast doubts on Senator Cruz’s integrity and/or intelligence.
