DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Long known as a fiery fiscal conservative, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is embracing his religious side for a group of Christian home schooling advocates in Iowa.

The Texan told a crowd of more than 500 home-schoolers in Des Moines on Tuesday that "there is no liberty more important than religious liberty."

And Cruz decried what he called the federal government's attempts to impede it.

Cruz is frequently mentioned as a possible 2016 presidential candidate. His fourth visit to Iowa since last summer has further fueled that speculation. Iowa is expected to host the first nominating caucuses for the 2016 presidential election.

Cruz hasn't comment on a presidential run. But he said the Obama administration has been more openly hostile toward religious freedom than any other occupant of the White House.
