This is not a good home stretch for Senator Ted Cruz . Earlier today, the Iowa Secretary of State released a statement about letters Cruz sent to shame voters into voting for him by claiming that knowledge of voter history and comparing to their neighbors. The letter misrepresents Iowa election law.
From The Hill:
“Today I was shown a piece of literature from the Cruz for President campaign that misrepresents the roll of my office, and worse, misrepresents Iowa election law,” Paul Pate said in a statement released by his office.
The Cruz campaign sent out “report cards” in Iowa purporting to grade residents and their neighbors on their voter participation in past caucuses.Formatted to look like an official document, the mailer is marked with the words “voting violation” at the top of the page in a large red box.

“Accusing citizens of Iowa of a ‘voting violation’ based on Iowa Caucus participation, or lack thereof, is false representation of an official act,” Pate continued in the statement. “There is no such thing as an election violation related to frequency of voting.“Any institution or statement to the contrary is wrong and I believe is not in keeping
“Any institution or statement to the contrary is wrong and I believe is not in keeping in the spirit of the Iowa Caucuses,” he added.
Even Senator Rand Paul weighed in and brought up the subject of Cruz missing the “Audit the Fed” vote. Check this out:

I like Cruz but I am not backing him for President. This is a stupid, stupid, stupid stunt and will backfire on him tremendously. Someone should have told him, that the Democrats pulled this nonsense last POTUS election, and people were disgusted.
