Senior Logan Schmidt supports Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz

Schmidt sees Cruz as an alternative to GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump

Justin Curto, Mill Valley News editor-in-chief

Who do you support for president?

I support Ted Cruz. I feel like Donald Trump, as 99 percent of Americans can agree, is an idiot. Pretty much, I just agree with all of his policies.

What were your first impressions of Cruz as a candidate?

I waited a couple months in … because obviously everyone’s going to change a little bit once they start seeing other people. So, when he first announced, I didn’t really think anything about it.

What are some of the issues you think are important going into this election that Cruz can fix?

Some of the biggest ones … are things with our economy, because it was really bad recently, and it’s slowly but surely improving. So, everyone has a different view on how that’s going to get fixed, like Bernie Sanders [is] trying to raise taxes and allow everyone to have access to college through those raised taxes on the rich. I just don’t really agree with that as much, because then you’re paying for college even if you don’t want to go.

Why can Cruz win the Republican nomination?

Even if you support Donald Trump’s ideas, it’s just the way that he plans to go about fixing them, or the way that he even just asserts himself, it’s just outrageous. It would make us almost a laughing stock of a country.
