April 9, 2016 (San Diego) Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is coming to San Diego for a rally at the Town and Country Resort, 500 Hotel Circle North. This is according to Eventbrite. This proves that this season the primaries will matter, and we will have a record number of Presidential candidates show up.
Back in March Senators Sanders did show up and went before a 13,000 person crowd. We are going to not just matter for both primaries, more likely than not. We are guessing, and speculation is something we do not do, is that Senator Cruz is getting ready for both the Rules Committee and to shop for delegates at the Cleveland convention. The more delegates he has, the better the argument he can make about electability. No candidate is going to secure the target number of pledged delegates.
We at Reporting San Diego are trying to get press credentials to the event, like we did cover the Sanders rally. While the event is full, and it is free, the event organizers recommend that people interested check from time to time to see if any tickets become available.
