Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz closed out a weekend filled with Oklahoma visits by candidates hoping to win the state’s primary election Tuesday, and eventually the White House in November.
Cruz’s visit Sunday evening marks the fourth appearance by a presidential candidate in Oklahoma in a little less than 48 hours. Florida Senator Marco Rubio appeared at the same venue Friday afternoon, while GOP frontrunner Donald Trump spoke a few blocks away at the Cox Convention Center Friday evening. Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders appeared at the Cox Center just a few hours before Cruz’s rally, and former president Bill Clinton campaigned in Edmond on behalf of his wife Hillary on Saturday morning.
The Texas Senator appeared with conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck, who said he rarely endorses a candidate. Gov. Mary Fallin introduced Beck, but stopped short of endorsing Cruz. She also spoke during Rubio’s rally Friday, and appeared at Trump’s campaign event as well.
