Ted Cruz to visit Milwaukee June 25 for "Together for Truth Summit" event
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Texas Senator Ted Cruz will be in Milwaukee this weekend to headline an event to energize Republicans ahead of the midterms.
The "Together for Truth Summit" will be held Saturday, June 25 at the Wisconsin Center.
The event will focus on election integrity, school board campaigns and getting more young people involved in politics.
Cruz says Wisconsin is a pivotal battleground and predicts Republicans will turn out in massive numbers this election year.
"Wisconsin is a battleground, it's always been a battleground and I believe in November we're not just going to see a red wave. I think we're going to see a tsunami and title wave, I think Republicans are going to retake both the House and the Senate," said Cruz.
Senator Ron Johnson, Congressman Bryan Steil and other GOP lawmakers are also expected to speak at Saturday's event.
It comes the same weekend the Democrats will be hosting their annual state convention in La Crosse.
