Heidi Cruz, the wife of republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, was in Effingham Tuesday for a campaign stop. Cruz was at the Effingham Culver’s, which was filled with interested voters.
Upon her arrival, Heidi Cruz briefly answered questions from the media before entering the restaurant and addressing those in attendance.
“We need a strong economy that creates jobs in the private sector, to defend constitutional liberties, and restore America’s leadership position abroad,” she said. “That’s what Ted will do.”
She also talked about the grass roots effort supporting Ted Cruz, including the $70 million raised by his supporters. Cruz called Illinois an important state with many delegates, noting that much of the state holds strong conservative values.
Cruz picked up three primary victories over the weekend, winning Kansas, Maine, and Alaska.
