The TicketMore in this series
This week on The Ticket podcast: The Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott discuss one of the only GOP presidential candidates who's been able to survive the Summer of Trump: Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.
While Cruz's poll numbers have held steady, he's set himself up as an alternative to Trump if or when the current GOP frontrunner flames out.
And to better understand how Cruz went from unknown to U.S. Senator, they talk to JoAnn Fleming, head of Grassroots America We the People, about his rise from obscurity to Tea Party darling.
