“Conservative Republicans in Iowa aren’t the only ones happy to see Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) visiting the Hawkeye State beginning today. So are Democrats — who are eager to make him the face of Iowa Republicans in next year’s midterm races,” NBC News reports.
The DNC highlighted the trip in a joint memo with local Democrats: “Up and down the ticket, the reckless and irresponsible political tactics of Ted Cruz are being admired and adopted by Iowa Republicans. Make no mistake: Ted Cruz is leading the Republican Party. Candidates want to be him. Incumbents are afraid of him. The Republican Party base is energized by him.”Save to Favorites
