N.H. News Roundup: Ted Cruz for president? ‘Murder-suicide’ in Nashua
We can add another name the list of 2016 potential presidential candidates.
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas has scheduled a trip to New Hampshire to headline a GOP fundraiser on Aug. 23.
Cruz is a first-term senator and a Tea Party favorite, but in his 6½ months on the job, he’s already faced off with his electorate on immigration.
Tickets to the Dublin fundraiser will cost $100 per person (or $500 to get some VIP time).
This adds on to an already busy schedule for Cruz in early voting states. He’s also got plans in Iowa, South Carolina and Florida.
So could this Congress freshman be a serious contender come 2016?
