Ted Cruz Accepts Invitation to the Rising Tide Summit


Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) will participate in the Rising Tide Summit at the U.S. Cellular Center on Saturday, December 5 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The Rising Tide Summit, which is hosted by FreedomWorks and Congressman Rod Blum (R-IA-1), allows grassroots activists to engage with presidential candidates on their plans to achieve robust economic growth.

Following Senator Cruz’s acceptance of the invitation, FreedomWorks Senior Economic Contributor Stephen Moore commented: “Our grassroots community is already familiar with Senator Cruz’s unique brand of constitutional conservatism, his principled stands against bad economic policies, and his dynamic and fiery speeches from the floor of the Senate. Without question, he brings an important viewpoint to the national discussion on economic issues.”

“We’re pleased that Senator Cruz has accepted our invitation. His support for a flat income tax and the elimination of the destructive ‘death tax’ shows his commitment to pro-growth policies. We look forward to hearing more about his plan to grow the economy at the Rising Tide Summit.”

Cruz is the fifth presidential candidate to confirm their attendance. Dr. Ben Carson, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA), and former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) have also confirmed. Invitations were sent to every major party candidate polling above 1 percent nationally.

More details about the Rising Tide Summit, including the location and time of the event, are available here.

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty, and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at

A fitting place for Senator Cruz to speak. He is an excellent Senator and hopefully will be the nominee.
