MILWAUKEE -- Wisconsin’s presidential primary is on April 5th, and thus, the presidential candidates have turned their attention to Wisconsin. Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz will host a "Jobs, Freedom and Security" rally in Brookfield on Tuesday morning, and Cruz will be in Milwaukee at the Riverside Theatre on Tuesday evening for a GOP town hall event with Donald Trump and John Kasich.
Monday, March 28th Cruz spoke in Altoona, near Eau Claire and later in Rothschild, near Wausau.
Cruz's speech in Altoona focused on stopping Donald Trump and uniting the Republican Party. Cruz spoke of policy and change, as more than 100 people listened.
It was quite the crowd at the Altoona Family Restaurant Monday afternoon in support of Ted Cruz.
Ted Cruz in Altoona
Shortly after 1:00 p.m., the "Cruz to Victory" bus pulled up and Texas Senator Ted Cruz emerged.
"We`ve been trapped in stagnation, trapped, people out of work, trapped, wages stagnating. My number one priority as president will be jobs and economic growth, bringing jobs back to America, driving wages back up again. We`re gonna see wages going up again. We`re gonna see young people coming out of school with four, five job offers. We`ll see morning again in America," Cruz said.
Cruz made his way through the crowd -- occasionally stopping to make small talk with his supporters.
Inside the restaurant, supporters said they'll vote for Cruz on April 5th because of his foreign policy.
"The time for political correctness is over. Enough is enough. We need a commander in chief who is focused on defending this country, on defeating radical terrorism, and utterly and completely destroying ISIS," Cruz said.
Cruz also talked about Trump attacking his wife Heidi, and said he believes the American people are sick of that, and that it has no place in American politics.
