U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on Tuesday named former U.S. Congressman Bob Barr National Chair of the "Liberty Leaders for Cruz" coalition. 

Barr represented the 7th District of Georgia in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1995 to 2003, served as a U.S. Attorney under President Ronald Reagan and was the Libertarian Party presidential candidate in 2008.

The campaign also released a video of eight leaders in the Liberty movement who are actively working for the Cruz campaign, featuring their personal stories of why they supported Ron Paul, and why in 2016, they support Ted Cruz for President. He currently practices law in Atlanta and serves on the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association.

"I am truly honored to be asked by Sen. Cruz to chair 'Liberty Leaders for Cruz,'" said Barr. "More than any other candidate for president in 2016, Cruz understands that the oath the president takes is a solemn commitment to always act in accordance with the Constitution, which is after all, the mechanism whereby our individual and collective freedoms as a country are secured. It is that commitment to the Constitution and to liberty that has drawn me to serve Sen. Cruz."

"The U.S. government is crushing liberty at nearly every turn. Our Constitutional rights are under attack like never before and we must fight back," Cruz said. "I am thrilled to have Congressman Barr, a proven defender of liberty in this country, chair our Liberty Leaders coalition. Bob's long history of protecting our Constitutional freedoms and his consistent, conservative record make him best equipped to lead this important coalition."
