The Iowa Republican Party announced Friday that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will be making an appearance this July in the key presidential primary state.
“Senator Ted Cruz embodies bold leadership and Iowa Republicans appreciate leaders who stand up for them and fight big government recklessness,” Iowa GOP Chairman A.J. Spiker said in a statement. “Ted Cruz is, without a doubt, a leader Iowans will want to meet. As the ‘First in the Nation’ state, we look forward to introducing Senator Cruz to Iowa Republicans.”
Cruz will headline the Republican party’s summer picnic in Des Moines on July 19.
