SPARTANBURG, South Carolina — Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) argued here at a women’s forum hosted by Palladian View that President Barack Obama is waging a war on women.

“For the last six years under President Obama, 3.7 million have entered poverty,” Cruz said in opening remarks before taking questions from local reporters on a panel. “Under President Obama, the median income for women has dropped by $733. You want to talk about a war on women? That’s a war on women.”…

“We’re here today because we’re concerned about the future for our kids and our grandkids,” Cruz said, adding that “there is no force in politics like Republican women” and he “would not be in the U.S. Senate today if it were not for Republican women.”

In his speech, Cruz laid out the three women in his life who had the most impact on him as a person: his mother, his wife Heidi and his aunt Sonia—who like his father Rafael fled communism in Cuba for America after fighting against the rise of Fidel Castro’s regime.

“What I want to do today is I want to talk about three women I admire, three women in my life who have had a real impact on my life,” Cruz said…

…“Right now for the first time in our nation’s history, most Americans don’t think their kids will have a better life than them—76 percent of Americans right now think their kids will have a worse life than they do,” Cruz said. “That has never been true in the history of our country.”
