Ted Cruz Coming To Columbus

He will be the first 2016 presidential candidate to visit the Columbus area.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz, of Texas, will be in the Fountain City Saturday, August 8th as part of his campaign for the White House. The event is being organized by the Muscogee County Republican Party.

The chair is excited about hosting Cruz and calls him a "conservative superstar" with a "positive message about the future of America." Cruz will speak at 7 p.m. at Solid Rock Church in Midland.

Tickets are 20 dollars each to cover costs and a buffet dinner. For more on how to purchase tickets, go to our sister station's website wtvm.com.

Muscogee County Republican Party leaders say this is not an endorsement of Cruz.
