When Dr. James Dobson speaks, most evangelical Christians listen. As the founder and president of Family Talk, which produces a radio program heard on 1300 outlets around the world and on the Internet, he commands a very large audience.

In other words, his endorsement carries a lot of weight, particularly in presidential politics.

Dobson put his weight behind U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), endorsing the presidential candidate's campaign. Among the nation's most trusted advisers on marriage, child development, and the family he was quick to point out the senator's record on religious liberty, life, and marriage was "second to none" in the current GOP field.

"I have met with the senator on multiple occasions: he is brilliant, articulate, and informed," Dobson said. "Shirley and I have been praying for a leader such as this, and we are confident that Ted Cruz has the moral and spiritual foundations to lead our nation with excellence. Speaking as private individuals, we urge conservatives and people of faith to join us in supporting his race for the presidency."

Dobson has advised three presidents on matters pertaining to marriage and the family and is the author of more than 30 books dedicated to preserving and equipping families. His wife Shirley is chairwoman of The National Day of Prayer Task Force, which sponsors tens of thousands of prayer gatherings, gathering millions of Americans together in prayer for the nation.

"Dr. Dobson has mentored and encouraged three generations of American families," Cruz said. "Dr. Dobson's wisdom and common sense have inspired health and healing in millions of lives. He has rallied people around the world with a vision for happy marriages and beautiful home life. I am deeply grateful for Dr. Dobson's gift to the world—he has been a voice of hope and a guide to many of us, and I am thrilled to have his support."
