North Missouri Congressman Sam Graves has endorsed Ted Cruz’ presidential campaign.
“”I have personally seen Ted Cruz stand up and fight on the issues that matter the most to conservatives, even when it wasn’t popular in Congress,” said Graves in a Cruz csampaign news release.
Graves’ endorsement is not much of a surprise.
His long-time political advisor, Jeff Roe is now Cruz’ campaign manager.
The late fall has been a pretty good period for Cruz.
His numbers in Iowa, which has its caucus on Feb. 1., have been growing.
One poll from Monmouth University has Cruz leading in Iowa, with 24%.
A CNN poll, however has Donald Trump continuing to leading in Iowa with 33% of the vote. Cruz places second in that survey with 20% of the support.
