However, Victor Cruz didn't shy away from stating his support for Barack Obama, even campaigning for the president in the months leading up to the election.'s Ohm Youngmisuk has the details on Cruz's relationship with Obama, which was important to the prez, considering that the Giants wide receiver is such a well-known Latino. 

"I was very excited," Cruz said of Obama defeating Romney. "It is big for our community. It is big for minorities and the Latin culture and the Latin communities. It is big for all of us. I hope he continues to do some positive things for us and I am excited to have him back for another term."
