Ted Cruz Will Campaign With a Conservative Icon In Iowa
Donald Trump may have Sarah Palin on his side, but rival Republican primary candidate Ted Cruz has a big personality up his sleeve too: Glenn Beck.
The conservative radio host and former Fox News personality will campaign with Cruz on Saturday in Iowa as the candidates scramble to secure an Iowa caucus victory. He’ll attend two events hosted by the Cruz-supporting Super PAC Keep the Promise.
Beck has long supported Cruz, and he urged his supporters to “fast and pray like you have never fasted and prayed ever before” for Cruz after he declared his candidacy, according to Politico. On Tuesday, Beck took to Facebook to attack Trump for changing his views on conservative issues and Palin for supporting him.
Palin previously supported Cruz when he ran for the Senate in 2012—a fact that Trump is gleefully rubbing in.
Cruz and Trump are at the top of recent Iowa polls, with Marco Rubio trailing by double digits and no other candidate—including the once-establishment assumed frontrunner, Jeb Bush—standing a chance.
The Iowa Caucus will take place on Feb. 1.
