Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will deliver a speech at the Gridiron Club’s annual 2014 dinner.
Cruz will be the Republican speaker at the prestigious dinner. A Democratic speaker has not been picked yet, according to Politico.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) were the speakers last year.
What’s also notable about Cruz speaking at the dinner is that a number of previous Republican presidential hopefuls delivered a speech at the dinner. Mitt Romney, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), former President George H.W. Bush and former Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) all spoke at the dinner in years past.
Cruz has regularly been mentioned as a strong possible Republican presidential candidate in 2016.
