Cruz making another day of Indiana campaign stops

April 25, 2016

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is making a new round of campaign stops in southern and central Indiana a little more than a week ahead of the state's primary.

The Texas senator plans events Monday in Borden, Columbus, Greenwood and Franklin, where he has scheduled an evening rally at the Johnson County Fairgrounds.

Cruz said during a Terre Haute rally on Sunday that he's offering Republicans a true "conservative" campaign in contrast to Donald Trump's "yelling, screaming and cursing and insulting." Cruz also held an Evansville rally on Sunday.

Trump drew a few thousand people to an Indianapolis rally last week.

Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich announced Sunday that Kasich was backing out in Indiana to help deny Trump the necessary delegates to win the Republican nomination.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said he may join Cruz on the campaign trail in Indiana.

Walker told reporters during a question-and-answer session Monday that he hasn't gotten any requests from Cruz yet but there's a possibility he might join the candidate on Sunday. The governor said hadn't heard about any specific event yet, however.

Walker has enjoyed a resurgence of sorts within Republican circles after helping Cruz win Wisconsin's GOP presidential primary earlier this month.
