(Ames, IA) U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) rallied hundreds of voters at the Gateway Hotel and Conference Center in Ames, IA on Saturday morning. The room was filled to capacity and people were spilling out into the hallway to hear from Cruz and syndicated radio and TV host Glenn Beck.

He completes his “full Grassley tour” (hitting all of Iowa’s 99 counties) on Monday prior to the Iowa Caucuses with stops in Jefferson and Marion before heading to his caucus night watch party in Des Moines.
