Texas Senator Cruz Visits Iowa This Week

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Republican Sen. Ted Cruz will appear in Iowa this week as he makes a summer tour of early voting states on the presidential calendar.

The freshman senator from Texas - a tea party favorite thought to be weighing a 2016 presidential bid - is scheduled to headline a Friday fundraiser for the Iowa Republican Party. He will also speak privately to a group of pastors from around the country.

Cruz also has trips to New Hampshire and Florida scheduled for the summer and has already visited South Carolina.

On the same day, Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, the son of former Texas Rep. Ron Paul, will be in Iowa to meet with pastors. He kicked off his presidential exploration in Iowa in May, headlining the party's annual Lincoln Day dinner.
