Sen Ted Cruz to Headline Iowa Republican Dinner
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will give the keynote address at an Iowa Republican Party dinner this fall.
The Iowa GOP announced on their website Monday that Cruz will headline the Ronald Reagan Commemorative Dinner on October 25. The freshman Republican senator is a Tea Party favorite thought to be weighing a 2016 presidential bid.
Iowa GOP Chairman A.J. Spiker said in a statement that Cruz has "quickly become nationally recognizable as someone who came to Washington to truly shake things up."
Cruz made his first Iowa visit last month. He is also scheduled to appear in Ames on Saturday at an event sponsored by the conservative group, the Family Leader.
Tickets for the October event which includes a dinner and a VIP reception range from $100 to $1,000.
