Fresh off his many standing ovations in the Lone Star State, Junior Senator Ted Cruz is basking in the glow of Iowa. Tonight he will headline the state party’s fundraising dinner. Interestingly, before Cruz goes on Iowa Governor Terry Branstad will speak. It has been noted that Branstad was no fan of the shutdown.
Of course, Branstad won’t say anything attacking Cruz. That would only give Cruz even more publicity and exposure, things he is not lacking at the moment.
It will be interesting to see where Cruz stacks up in the next round of Iowa polling. My guess is he’ll be right on the heels of Rand Paul.
