Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R) said he would like to see Sen. Ted Cruz defeated in the Iowa caucuses, the Des Moines Register reports.
Said Branstad: “Ted Cruz is ahead right now. What we’re trying to do is educate the people in the state of Iowa. He is the biggest opponent of renewable fuels. He actually introduced a bill in 2013 to immediately eliminate the Renewable Fuel Standard. He’s heavily financed by Big Oil. So we think once Iowans realize that fact, they might find other things attractive but he could be very damaging to our state.”Save to Favorites
