Phil Robertson and Glenn Beck Campaign for Ted Cruz in Iowa Leading Up to the Caucuses

Written by Onan Coca


The Iowa caucuses are being held today, this evening, all across the Hawkeye state.

By Monday night we will likely know for sure which candidates the good people of Iowa have chosen to represent them in the 2016 election. The last polls before the caucus show Donald Trump leading the GOP field and Hillary Clinton leading the Democrat field. However, in both contests, the runners-up are too close to count out.

In the Democrat primary, socialist “Bernie” [score]Bernard Sanders[/score] (I-VT) is running a mere 3 points behind Hillary Clinton.

And in the Republican primary, [score]Ted Cruz[/score] (R-TX) is just 5 points behind Trump, and [score]Marco Rubio[/score] (R-FL) is another 8 behind Cruz.

With this deficit in mind and an all-hands-on-deck approach, Ted Cruz’s campaign is “pulling out all the stops” in Iowa.

Which is why Phil Robertson of A&E’s Duck Dynasty and Glenn Beck were there to encourage folks to go out and support Ted Cruz.

The GOP race in Iowa is neck-and-neck; now the question is which candidate’s “get out the vote” (GOTV) effort will prove most effective? Moreover, which candidate’s supporters will prove to be most organized and most persuasive on Monday night?

I love the Iowa caucuses.
