Quite the contrary: Amy Lindsay said the Texas senator is still in the running for her vote. 

“He is, he absolutely is,” Lindsay said when asked if she was still considering Cruz on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper.”

“Like I said, when I did the ad and the words that came out of my mouth … I was speaking from the heart about some of the issues that I think are true problems in this country that we as Americans are facing today,” she said of her role in the ad.

“And so, yes, I have no ill will against Ted Cruz right now. He’s got a job to do, and, you know, I’m a middle-class working girl and I had a job to do.”

At one point in the interview, Lindsay described the Cruz campaign’s reaction as “a tad bit hypocritical,” but then backtracked.

“I don’t think it’s un-Christian,” she said. “I think this is political as usual. It was done at a snap moment, someone’s got to make a decision, and sometimes it’s just better to take it down.”

“So, I don’t want to use the word hypocritical, but it’s definitely a dichotomy to me,” she said.

She said a lot of pundits on the right have questioned the Cruz campaign’s decision to pull the ad. 

“I’ve actually gotten a lot of support on the right from a lot of people that think the Ted Cruz campaign might have acted hastily, and were like, ‘Hey, this also the type of person who might be voting in this race,’” she said.

“You know, it’s not just the white, male, Christian, gun-toting people,” she added. “It’s people like me, who tend to be fiscally conservative and maybe a little bit more socially liberal in some of my views that I feel about.”
