OLIVE BRANCH — Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz will visit two north Mississippi cities this month.
The Commercial Appeal reports that the junior senator from Texas has stops scheduled Aug. 11 at restaurants in Tupelo and Olive Branch.
The conservative Republican will be at Connie’s Fried Chicken in Tupelo at 9 a.m. and at Sweet Pea’s Table in Olive Branch at noon.
DeSoto County campaign spokesman Donnie Abernathy said Friday that Cruz had wanted to visit there in early May but had to cancel because of Senate action.
Republican Mitt Romney carried the state with a little more than 55 percent of the vote in 2012 and got its six electoral votes.
