WATERLOO — Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz will return to Waterloo for a rally on Saturday night.

The event, hosted by the Keep the Promise political action committee that is supporting Cruz, will also feature radio personality Glenn Beck, Cruz national co-chairs Steve King and Bob Vander Plaats, and conservative author David Barton.

The rally will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday at Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center, 205 W. Fourth St. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. People can RSVP at www.eventbrite.com/e/waterloo-rally-with-glenn-beck-and-senator-ted-cruz-tickets-20824995121. Reservations are required as space is limited.

Cruz most recently completed a bus tour in early January that brought him through Northeast Iowa. Saturday’s rally will be his fourth trip to the region.

Great, the Cruz missile has two loons supporting him. Considering that he's a Canadian, it's official: Cruz is a twoony!


In Canada they have one dollar and two dollar coins; no paper ones or twos. On the back is one looney or two loonys. Loony's are birds. So they call their coins loonys or twoonys. I mention this because while Canadian Cruz knows this by personal experience, the rest of the Couriers readership might not...


No, no, no, no, no, Lonesome Rhodes! You declared on your radio program this summer that you officially are no longer a republican, so how and why are you supporting republicans, Lonesome Rhodes?!

What a liar!


No longer a republican AND a liar...Good G-d, he's now a DEMOCRAT!!!


For those who always have to ask (insert favorite dumb guy voice now), "Gotta link for that?"



Is Glen Beckistan bringin' the Bundy's and Oaf Breakers with him? That'll git the fear oh God in us!


I have to be honest with you for a moment. It's all been quite clear for some time that Glenn Beck infiltrates and partners with people of questionable quality. He is far from a true conservative - perhaps Cruz as well. Let's see...what other scary people are supporting Cruz? TBN people and other NRR people who serve mammon but profess Christ. Pure and simple - these two are goober globalists.
