Ted Cruz rally turns personal in Murfreesboro

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – It was an unscripted moment like few others on the presidential campaign trail Monday in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Ted Cruz paused for a moment and looked into the audience at a community center for a man who changed his family’s life.

“I was told Pastor Gaylon Wiley was here,” he told the crowd. “I haven’t seen Brother Wiley since I was a kid.”

Then as the room with a thousand people fell silent, Cruz said “Brother Wiley led my dad to the Lord.”

Out in the audience that day was Gaylon Wiley, who now lives in nearby Lebanon, Tennessee.

At most gatherings, Cruz tells the story of his wayward father Rafael who had left the family in Canada in the late 1970s.
