Why Did TNALC’s Chief Counsel,Stephen Pidgeon, JD, write a letter to the Secretary of State for Texas about Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)

On March 10, 2016, TNALC’s Chief Counsel, Stephen Pidgeon, JD, wrote a letter to the Honorable Mr. Carlos H. Cascos, Secretary of State for Texas about Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). See Article
