Sen. Ted Cruz's campaign bus is parked in downtown Guthrie Center, Iowa on Monday, January 4, 2016.

This week on The Ticket 2016: There's less than a month until the Iowa Caucuses…and we have a new frontrunner. Texas Senator Ted Cruz has taken the spotlight after recent polls has him jumping ahead of Donald Trump. KUT's Ben Philpott and the Tribune's Jay Root will talk with Tribune reporter Patrick Svitek, who's on the road with the Cruzin' to Caucus bus tour.

And with all the current campaign focus on Iowa…they try to explain how the Hawkeye State gained its prominent role in primary politics.
