Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, will travel to Iowa next month to participate in a fundraiser for Representative Ashley Hinson, R-Iowa, raising speculation that he is considering another offer for the White House.
Iowa is a typical hotbed for candidates given its role as the first state to hold a caucus during the presidential primary season. Cruz won the state’s Republican caucus in 2016, beating 10 other candidates, including former President Donald Trump and Senator Marco Rubio, R-Texas, who finished second and third, respectively.

“We have to win back the majority and the road to Nancy Pelosi’s dismissal runs through Iowa’s first congressional district,” Cruz said in a statement on the Hinson event. “Ashley has my full support and I can’t wait to be with the entire Hinson team in Iowa.”
As for a presidential campaign of 2024, Cruz has not yet confirmed anything but he has expressed his interest in representing himself.
“I’m definitely watching it,” Cruz told Newsmax in June, saying “2016 has been the most fun I’ve ever had in my life.”
