Cruz makes late-night west Michigan stop Monday


Presidential candidate Ted Cruz made a late-night west Michigan appearance on Monday after campaigning in Mississippi.

Cruz took the stage just after 11 p.m., greeting a full house of enthusiastic attendees.

He says the election comes down to three key issues: jobs, freedom and security --- which he says tie into his platform as well.

"We will repeal Obamacare. We will pass a simple flat tax, we will abolish the IRS, rein in the federal regulators that are killing jobs, stop amnesty and secure the borders."

The Texas Senator took shots at fellow nominee Donald Trump but otherwise emphasized the Cruz campaign as one to unify the GOP vote.

His campaign says flight issues caused a delayed arrival to the 8:30 p.m. event, held at Noto’s in Cascade Township.

Michigan and Mississippi residents head to the ballots today, as well as Republican voters in Idaho and Hawaii.
