Sen. Ted Cruz campaign stops in East Texas include Longview, Jefferson

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - The campaign trail brought U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz to East Texas on Thursday, as the Republican seeks his second, six-year term as Texas' junior senator.

Cruz, traveling in his campaign bus, the Texas Cruzer, first stopped in Jefferson Thursday afternoon at Joseph's Riverport Barbecue. His next stop took him to The Butcher Shop in Longview.

He faces U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-El Paso, in November's general election.
