U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched his “Cruzin to Caucus” bus tour in Boone, IA.

(Boone, IA) This morning during the first stop of the six-day, 28-county “Cruzin’ to Caucus” Iowa bus tour, Iowa State Senator Jerry Behn (R-Boone) endorsed Ted Cruz for President at King’s Christian Bookstore in Boone, IA.

Behn is the Iowa State Senator from the 24th District and minority leader in the Iowa Senate. He has served in the Iowa Senate since 1997 and previously served as a Boone County Supervisor from 1995 to 1996. Behn has been farming for 36 years and is a member of Farm Bureau, Iowa Soybean Association, and the Iowa Association of Business and Industry.

“Ted Cruz is the proven and consistent Conservative we need in order to turn this country around,” Behn said. “Americans are looking for a leader that will stand for conservative principles, fight the Washington Cartel, and restore the power back to the people. Ted Cruz is that leader.”

“Jerry is dedicated to God and country, family and farming,” said Cruz. “He stands for the principles that we all share, principles that this country was founded on. With Jerry’s leadership it will help unite courageous Conservative across Iowa to reignite the promise of America. I am thrilled to have his support.”

Behn and his wife, Denise, live on a farm outside of Boone. They have two daughters, two sons, and six grandchildren.
