The Ticket: Ted Cruz Returns to Texas
This week on The Ticket: The Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott talk about one of the only GOP candidates that's been able to survive the Summer of Trump: Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
While Cruz's poll numbers have held steady, he's set himself up as an alternative to Trump, if, or when, the current GOP frontrunner flames out.
And to better understand how Cruz went from unknown to U.S. Senator, they'll talk to JoAnn Fleming, head of Grassroots America – We the People about his rise from obscurity to become a Tea Party darling.
