Cruz completes the ‘Full Grassley’
JEFFERSON, Iowa – Hours before the Iowa caucuses, Ted Cruz visited his 99th county in the Hawkeye State and completed the “Full Grassley” – the name coming from longtime U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, who continues to visit all of the state’s counties every year.
Cruz said that this was his “final” time to stand in front of the people of Iowa and ask them for their support.
“The Iowa caucuses are five hours away. Tonight, 7 p.m. I want to ask every one of you to come out tonight at 7 p.m., caucus for us, stand for us, stand up and speak for us,” Cruz told supporters. “If we stand together united, we will win. And I gotta tell you, this race right now, it’s neck-and-neck, it’s all about the turnout. This race is a statistical tie between me and Donald Trump.”
